DJ Joe Kool
With over 25 years experience in the UK and Middle East DJ Joe Kool began his career buying his first 12” vinyl at the age of 11 & first pair of decks at the age of 18.
In the early days he spent numerous years’ playing for his local Essex circuit. He toured around France in 1998 for the World Cup playing at campsites for all the England fans.
This took him into the 2000’s where he became part of the music industry working for a vinyl distribution company, selling records to record shops in and around London at the height of the UK Garage scene…
DJ Joe Kool was a regular visitor to the likes of City Sounds, Black market, Uptown, Rhythm Division etc. Shops that were synonymous with the evolution of the music scene in London around the early 2000’s… This led to him getting the exposure he deserved providing upfront test presses and promos which in turn led him playing in and around London, most notably a residency at Heaven, an influential club in the UK for many years.
No stranger is he to pirate radio securing a regular slot around London and later on Coppernob internet radio.
He then made the bold decision to move to Doha, Qatar in early 2013 where he continued his work performing and DJing across all formats. He secured a 6 month residency at Champions bar every Friday in 2015 and collaborated with the likes of DJ Kinky D. Most recently known playing for Doha Hustle at Nozomi every Thursday!
Joe Kool dabbles in all types of music from jazz to jungle and anything in-between. A sucker for a cheeky disco re-edit but at home enjoys playing a variety, mostly disco, funky, jazzy, soulful and classic house tunes.
