DJ Cocheze (named after an Apache Native American Chief spelled "Cochise") got the chance of a lifetime to rock one show with KRS-One on February 18th 2005 at the age of 20, where he was chosen to be his personal tour DJ for the next 4 years. He has performed hundreds of shows with KRS-One in over 20 countries including, Japan, Africa, Spain, France, England and the United States. Not only has Cocheze shared the stage with stellar artists such as Guru, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Tribe Called Quest, Rhazel, Method Man, & MC Lyte, but has also dominated the turntabilist battle scene. He completed a degree in Recording Engineering at FullSail Real World Education in Orlando FL, which fine-tuned his battle skills and helped him win multiple Hip Hop Elements Battles, as well as, many Southeast Regional Guitar Center Battles in the Florida area. In 2012 Cocheze became the Denver DMC Champion and earned himself a spot in the 2012 DMC US Finals where he competed with 11 of the top DJs in the Country.
Cocheze now resides in San Francisco, California, where the opportunity to collaborate with some of the world's most talented artists/DJ’s and rock some of the biggest parties the Bay has to offer, has become his reality. Even though he has a background in Hip Hop, this talented artist from Steamboat Springs Colorado can assure any client they will be well taken care of in many genres throughout the night. His time in SF has been well spent broadening his musical aptness to include other genres of music such as Funk, Soul, 80's, Motown, House and Electro, and he continues to build his arsenal as a musician, not just a DJ. Cocheze sets himself apart from your ordinary DJ's by delivering an open format style of mixing, including his extreme technical abilities as a conditioned turntablist. The Sky is the limit for this young DJ, after sharing the stage with some of the worlds biggest artists we can now see Cocheze rising to the top.
"I like to keep the party moving and keep the client interested in what Im playing. When I play for people its about making everyone happy with a variety of music and showing off some of my skills throughout the night. When you book me for a party you're not just getting a DJ, you get a LIVE SHOW!!!" - DJ Cocheze

|DJ Cocheze is great!! We had him perform an event and he provided the best of everything. From deep tracks to fun pop Cocheze supplies music to pick up any party up and keep it going all night! That with tight mixing skills, juggling, scratching,... DJ Cocheze is the complete package. I would recommend for any event and/ or party!|

|DJ Cocheze rocked our 2012 New Years party at the City Club in San Francisco. Everyone had a great time - we gave him a general list of tunes we wanted played, and he mixed it into an epic night. No doubt that I would recommend him for any bash in the future.|

|Cody is an amazing DJ! Great music, extremely professional. Cody was the DJ at my wedding who went beyond the call of duty. Due to weather issues, the timing of my wedding was changed at the very last minute. Cody (who arrived very early to setup and make sure everything was properly set up) stepped up when one of my vendors failed to show to provide music for the cocktail reception. I would highly recommend Cody!|

|Hello to all! |
I got married in May and I am very proud to say that DJ Cocheze was the DJ at our reception.
After our meeting with Cody, we were confident and sure that we had chosen the right company to liven up our reception. Cody was friendly, showed us good samples and was very professional. I live 50 miles from the wedding site. Cody had to travel almost 80 miles to get there. He arrived 3 hours early to set up and even helped out the caterer after he was done. Our reception was a hit!
I appreciate the willingness that Cody illustrated in working a great distance from home and that had all my track requirements available. I enjoyed myself a lot at the reception and I danced 'til I almost dropped. Our heavy-footed guests danced easily to DJ Cocheze’s mixes. The lighting display was also perfect.
Cody knew the work of our preferred artists and was so comfortable mixing our selected tracks perfectly! I remember everyone singing along to the most familiar tracks. There were no mistakes or gaps between mixes. Very professional! Our guests did not want was to go and it was past 2am!
The party was so exciting that it was "invaded" by other guests at the hotel and even a bride and groom from another wedding commented that our DJ was better than theirs.
I really need to publicly thank DJ Cocheze and recommend him to who ever wants to have a fantastic party with fun for everyone!
Thanks for everything. . I’m sure that DJ Cocheze will do a great job for you!
Frank and Anna
