Corey Dawkins has been a main fixture in Toronto’s music scene since 1998 as both a DJ and promoter. His versatility, passion and knowledge of music has allowed him to become one of Toronto’s finest in hip hop, house, neo-soul and more.
Corey has teamed up and been showcased with the best talent in the city and he is repeatedly referred to by his followers, and fellow DJ’s, as one of Toronto’s best and most underrated – although that is beginning to change!
Over the years Corey has held a six year residency at Stone Lounge at Revival Bar (Toronto), and has had numerous gigs peppered throughout the city. His sets transcend genre and can move dance floors with House, Hiphop, R&B, Reggae, etc.
Corey’s musical mantra is “A DJ is like a preacher speaking to a multitude of people, I speak with base lines, vocals and chords”.
Corey’s dopetastic DJ stylings can be heard regularly at his ongoing events:
