A veteran DJ originally from Vancouver, Canada, but now residing in Calgary, Alberta, Ricco Colinares first started DJ'ing at the tender age of 13 with influences from the early days of hip-hop and breaking in the mid-80's. In 1993, he discovered electronic music and eventually morphed his sound to the underground.
Ricco has played some of the largest electronic music events on the west coast of Canada and United States, playing with acts such as The Chemical Brothers, Jamiroquai, Rabbit in the Moon, Sasha, Union Jack, DJ Heather, Fred Everything, Mark Farina, Derrick Carter and more. He's held many residencies at many of Vancouver's premier nightclubs including Red Lounge, Starfish Room, Sonar, Wettbar, Lotus Sound Lounge and Joseph Richards.
Ricco is the purveyor of soul with a diverse palette playing deep, soulful and funky house to nu-disco, rare grooves, soul, funk and old school hip-hop.
