Your DJ, JOill (PREHEAT with JOill)
JOill, Detroit-bred, has been calling San Francisco his home since 2001. His name is a combination of the classic American name, "Jo", combined with his Korean roots & middle name,"ill."
JOill has been performing musically since 1986. His background & training in Detroit in his early ages as a jazz saxophonist was a great platform for him to grasp the electronic side of music. Growing up by both Detroit & Chicago, these concrete-jungle-like classrooms gave him access to many styles of music early on such as Motown, Blues, Jazz, Rock & Roll, Hip Hop & of course, his main choice as a DJ, Electronic Dance Music. JOill has been lighting up the dance floor as a House DJ since 1996. He has also been known to drop a sick hip-hop & old school set as well. To try & classify him would do no good. His electrifying style of music combines elements of deep, tech, progressive, breaks, booty & soulful house that result in an infectious groove. JOill has been known to move dance floors around the globe. Not only has he performed at prestigious clubs, parties & festivals around the U.S., he has & still is working internationally as well. You can find JOill gracing the historical stages of France & Bulgaria, the tropical paradises of Brazil & the fairy-dusted deserts of Burning Man, to name just a few.
