DJ Bozu would be the first to admit that his grasp of the English language needs a little work. After coming out victorious at the Dave and Buster’s DJ Battle last week, it’s apparent that his DJ skills are also on the come-up.

“I never thought [of] winning, I just did what I can,” he says. “DJ battle or showcasing is really different compared to DJ-ing in a club because a battle or showcasing has limitation[s] for time. For the battle, [it] was 15 minutes so I tried to figure out how I can express [myself] as a DJ with skills.”

Currently going all in on the electro, dub step tip, Bozu is also experimenting with blending reggae and electro.

A move to New York next year is only fitting for the east coast hip-hop connoisseur. Until then, Hawaii party people take note.
