Founder Dj Kookane:
KooKane got into the L. A. rave scene during
its first peak (92/93), where he regularly spun at local clubs
and parties composed of rebel crews, club kids, and ravers.
KooKane was one of the first LA based techno djs to introduce
a new generation of ravers to hard acid techno. KooKane has
made a name for himself by working with production companies
from around the US. As word of this skills spread, bookings
in Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Japan, South America and Europe,
quickly followed. By showcasing his high energetic hard acid
techno sound KooKane makes each performance unique and fresh.
His style ranges from tribal techno to hard pounding crushing
beats that blow your mind away and leave you with a big smile.
KooKane has performed at more that 1,500 parties across the
globe including a few places in Europe which he remembers

KooKane's massive record collection is a testament to his
genuine love for the music. This deep appreciation for the

create his own tracks to be released under his label and production
company, A.M.U. Recordings and Live Underground Productions
based in Los Angeles CA.
During the early 90's
Kookane produced an underground mix show on Fridays from
11:pm to 3:am Saturday mornings through 96.7FM -KMAX in
Pasadena CA. The show was called "RAVE RADIO".
It ran on the air for almost 2 and a half years. This underground
mix show was picked up by Y.107FM where it ran for another
2 years. During this time KooKane got the opportunity to
meet many people in the rave scene and was able to promote
the underground parties referred to as "RAVES" via the air ways of Southern CA. KooKane's most influential
and inspiring DJs include DJ DAN, CARL COX, TERRY MULLAN,
DAN EFEX, RON-D-CORE, TRON, ADAM-X, and FRANKIE BONES. KooKane
loves to DJ because it gives him the opportunity to travel
and party with people from across the world. Traveling isn't
always the easiest part about DJing but its worth the hassle
if you come back away from a party with an amazing crowd
response to what's in your record crate.He's now working
on new projects for the the Future on AMU Recordings.
