Reppin' Los Angeles, DJ A-Ko has been steadily making moves. A turntablist and professional open-format party rocker, nothing is off limits when A-Ko is behind the 1200s. We featured his excellent 'Summer Forever Vol. 2' Mixtape for our Mixtape Monday column this week, and we were ecstatic when he sent along this dope pack of edits and transitions.
Quality is not to be understated here - these edits are useful and versatile.
Big Ups to the homie A-Ko for allowing us to share these! Enjoy.

EDIT: did this little write-up on the homie for mixtape monday, reposting. If ya' don't know, now ya' know...
Not too many DJ's know what it's like to 'run the town.' I'm not talking about rising to fame or prominence in a particular 'scene' - I'm talking about holding down an entire city. From clubs, to private events and prime-time radio mixshows, DJ A-Ko was 'all city' in his hometown of Rochester, NY. His status as one of the top party-rockin' open-format DJ's in Rochester was written (quite literally) in the widely circulated CITY newspaper, where he was voted 'Best Local DJ' in 2008, and nominated for the same title the following year. Having risen to the top in Rochester, he spent the next couple of years refining his production chops, tutoring up-and-coming DJ's in the art of crossfader manipulation and playing shows all over New York. He has since planted his feet in the city of Los Angeles, where he is a featured DJ at ScratchEvents, maintains a residency at Broadway Bar, and plays private and public engagements for a wide variety of corporate clientele.Have a good weekend everyone, good luck at your gigs!
