Damiano Cortini aka DaKai is a 15 year old DJ/Producer who at an early age showed a tremendous interest in music...in particular: anything hard, heavy and loud. DaKai likes to unveil his sets with Heavy Bass, Trap and hard-hitting Dubstep. His interests really started to take shape when he bought his first Ableton Launchpad when he was 12 and from there he's been non-stop. From equipment to software, plug-ins to video tutorials, he's a self-taught, extremely driven DJ who has no plans on stopping anytime soon. He has made quite a name for himself in central NY opening for Protohype, Figure, Kennedy Jones and Candyland to name a few. He is also very busy making new tracks and compiling the dirtiest, heaviest bass drops possible. He continues to work nonstop trying to make something of himself and to show the world what he's got.
