Knutz started crate digging in 1999 east of Los Angeles, and soon thereafter began to DJ live events as an outlet to share his new tunes. Since moving to Arcata, CA in 2004 DJ Knutz has relentlessly played hundreds of events, parties, and festivals, and held residencies at yoga centers and bars alike. Moving seamlessly from one genre to the next, Knutz is happy mixing classics we muse over with obscure beats n’ pieces. Although funkiness is often a key ingredient, sets are usually improvised for the moment, embracing and uplifting the collective energy of the people there.
“The mood that is set is smooth, real, vibin, splendid and fun! Smiles, swift footloose footwork, winks, high fives, snapping and hip bumpin are all things to expect on a funky Knutz dancefloor.” – Raven Oliver
“Groovin' funk, nostalgic hip- hoppin' til there ain't no stoppin', soulfully rendered though the musical fabulousness of our friend, DJ Knutz.” –Gabrielle Zeitlin
