Kon-flikt, born Ken Wilcox is an American Hip Hop, House and Mash Up Deejay from Denver, CO. In his almost ten year journey behind the decks, his skills and agility have taken him from coast to coast across the U.S.A. “I always knew I had a passion for music. The very first job I ever had was at a used music store that wasn’t very busy, so I spent most of my time just picking different CD’s and listening to them.” Starting out at age 22, he spent most of his weekends behind the DJ booth with some of Denver’s premier Deejays. “I would sit in the booth for hours and just watch and learn. The way those guys did that was such an art form to me and I probably drove them crazy with the millions of questions that I was constantly asking them.” Acquiring his skills from such DJ’s as Wyatt Earp, Dj Foxx, Tribal Touch, Dj Tabor and many more, he quickly saved as much as he could to buy equipment and get himself into the market. “My first set of decks were Numark Axis 9’s and I couldn’t wait to get home to try them out only to figure out I was butt ass horrible!!!” After spending a few months on just solid practice, he put together a demo which he was determined to get to into the right hands. “I would listen to the Radiobums (KS 107.5 Mixers) and just think of how great it would be to be those guys.” After hearing a radio commercial for the Virgin Megastore, he decided to make a trip down as two of Denver’s premier Deejay’s (Dj Bedz & Dj Psycho) we’re doing a promotion there. “I remember seeing them and thinking I was surrounded by superstars. I approached Dj Bedz and handed him my demo with all my info. I remember thinking I would never hear from such big shot Deejays.” But as luck would have it, two months later he received an email from none other that Bedz himself. After being invited to the Radiobums Record Pool, he was quickly able to network with some of the best in the Denver scene. “I remember my first record pool meeting, I was extremely nervous. I just kept thinking to myself, here I am with all of these guys that I listen to on the radio and I have no idea what the hell to say!” Working with the deejays in the pool, he was quickly able to acquire some much needed advice on how to market himself as a deejay. “ I would talk to Bedz and Petey for hours sometimes, and I’m pretty sure I drove them crazy too.” After about a month, he was able to land his first resident gig at Denver’s Sports Column. Before he knew what hit him, he was booked five nights a week at some of Denver’s hottest venues. After about a year of playing Denver nightclubs, he decided it was time to expand his horizons and started sending demos to club promoters in other states. “ I remember thinking, man I’ll be lucky if anyone even listens to my demos.” But listen they did, and a short time later, he was offered to play a few nights in Southern California. “I remember the first time I boarded a plane to play in So Cal, I felt like a superstar! I don’t remember if I was excited or scared (probably scared) but when I got there to the airport and met the promoter, that had to be one of the best moments I had experienced in my life at that point.” As time went on, he built a solid reputation for himself, earning the respect and notice of clubs and promoters all over. It was in this time that he decided to expand his genre’s of music as well. “I started out a hip hop deejay, but what I started to see was that music was changing and the hip hop that I was playing just wasn’t keeping people in the clubs anymore.” It was in this time he made his leap into the electronic music world. He quickly looked to old friends Wyatt Earp and Dj Foxx for help. “Foxxy and Wyatt were such big influences on me. I would watch, listen to and admire those guys! Everything they did was so clean and on point, I remember thinking to myself, damn, will I ever be that good?” Following the direction of Wyatt and Foxx, he quickly made a transition from a one genre Dj to a multi-genre talent. “The first time I heard “Never Gonna Come Back Down” by BT, I was hooked!” In the years following, he has built a solid reputation for himself in cities such as Chicago, Miami, L.A., Palm Springs, San Diego and many more. His skills, work ethic, ability to adapt and passion for the art make him a truly valuable asset in the Dj market. “I will always have a passion for it, and I will always continue to grow and expand. The feeling the crowd brings me is euphoric and I’ll be damned if I’ll ever let that slip away!!!”
