CodeStar has been enamored with music from a young age, having enjoyed concerts, raves, and bumping the sound system since being a lil sprout in the garden of life. Growing up in Portland, Oregon, he was exposed to a diversity of music, and experienced the magic of transformational dance. Along with other instruments, he was inspired to start DJing, and got his own turntables at a young age in 1999. He has never looked back, having played countless house parties, concerts, special events, music venues, ecstatic dances, festivals, and more. Wielding a style that blends organic instrumentation and vocals with deep bassy dance beats, expansive effects, loops, samples, and turntablism, CodeStar’s sets are creatively inspired by an invigorating Love for Life! He brings a live and unique mix to every occasion, maintaining continuity, while refusing to be stylistically confined.
CodeStar is truly a reflection of our modern era’s rainbow of diversity, with a wide range of influences including world, reggae, funk, house, tribal, bass music, and more, combining it all into a style he has coined as “World Tribe Vibez”. In addition to being a seasoned Ecstatic Dance DJ, event producer, and MC, he has shared the stage with many talented artists, including Nahko Bear, Tubby Love, Amber Lily, Tina Malia, Kabaka Pyramid, Robert Minott, David Starfire, and more. Blessed to live in Durango Colorado, immersed in an amazing community, he brings positive vibes to every event he is part of. CodeStar is a conduit for bringing magic into the moment, weaving music into motion, expression into exhaltation, and inspiration into celebration!
