West African in heritage, Naarm (Melbourne)-based Zjoso has quickly become an essential thread weaving through the city’s musical tapestry. He is the founder of Tribqu, a progressive platform celebrating underground music and culture, where at the helm, he has successfully carved out a distinct role as radio host ,DJ and curator.
His monthly radio programme presented on Skylab has become a cult favourite, whilst the dance cultivates a space where music is not led by a specific genre rather a feeling and exploration whereby freedom in dance is encouraged. Tribqu has energised a community movement of like-minded music lovers. Such is the brand's influence, that it recently extended to hosting a stage at this year’s Daybreak Festival.
An accomplished and versatile DJ, Zjoso explores his love for soulful music across the spectrum. In a relatively short time span, he has quickly asserted himself as a prevalent figure on Naarm’s clubbing circuit. With discerning taste that touches on sounds like street soul, 90’s house, dub reggae and hazy breakbeat, he is able to navigate both dancefloors and radio frequencies with perceptive ability and a sharp skill-set. The recherché selector’s recognition proven with invitations to warm up for the likes of Glenn Underground, Jovonn, Bradley Zero, Errol (Touching Bass), Gnork and as a key support at Flow Festival setting the mood between acts like Digable Planets and KAITT.
A love for dancing, a passion rooted within discovering and sharing music and an inherent motivation to bring people together through these forms lay as the foundation for Zjoso’s creative focus. A vibrant voice who is helping define the shape of Australian dance culture moving forward.
