DJ Milk aka Milkman Amok is the funky beatslinger from Colorado who delivers eclectic beats for the hips, mind and soul. His musical journeys travel to exotic lands and the deep reaches of unexplored places. The holy trinity of breakbeats, techno and house fuel his energetic mixes, enhanced by his personal signatures of syncopation, spontaneity and the extraordinary.
He’s equally comfortable moving from high energy funk rhythms to smooth downtempo vibes, blending tracks into freestyle musical collage to rattle booties and induce pleasant dreams. Milk’s musical influences range from psychedelic guitar rock to jazz to hip hop to classical to Middle Eastern and Central Asian rhythms. As a result, his musical selections do not conform to genres but instead by the creative output of musicians and producers who inspire him at any given moment.
Milk relishes the role of winding up a good party and has performed as the opening act for many of his musical heroes, including Afrika Bambaataa, Amon Tobin, Sabo, Adam Freeland, Lee Coombs, Simon Shackleton, The Orb and John Digweed. He serves as the Creative Director of the Fantastic Hosts, a Denver-based collective which produces immersive experiential happenings.
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.Henry David Thoreau
