DJ DKO Website


The latest DKO project is called "Beyond The Boneyard": A groundbreaking new cd and live solo performance innovation that pushes the boundaries of the typical trombone stereotype and that of the traditional DJ. Trombonist Darren Kramer has been working as a full-time professional freelance musician for 25 years, including international tours with Matchbox Twenty, recording with Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Michael Brecker, and producing four original cds as leader and founder of his own music company DKO The Darren Kramer Organization. However, Kramer has now created a new niche for himself by embracing technology, a new genre, and a new identity…introducing DJ DKO. This one-of-a-kind “Electric Trombone DJ” creatively blends live performance with DJ remix artistry. A fresh mix of jazz and beats dominate Kramer’s electro-acoustic originals which feature the trombone in a remarkable new way – combining innovative performance techniques with cutting-edge technology to produce a wide array of new sounds. Live shows also feature eclectic covers by such artists as Sting, Prince, Beyonce, Bjork (and even Metallica!) being creatively remixed in realtime via Ableton Live and an iPad. The amazing new Lemur App allows for spontaneously looping of live electric trombone, virtual synths, and vocoder over the tracks. Furthermore, this unique performance is often enhanced with spectacular visuals manipulated in realtime by utilizing the latest VJ software to combine Kramer’s world-class photography and original video with live audience camera feeds for a truly stunning interactive audio/visual experience.
