DJ / Event Organizer

In a DJ career spanning over 2 decades, 100s of events across the country, and performances alongside international recording artists from 6 different continents, Karmakanik continues to rock dancefloors far and wide with his signature blend of auditory stimulation. From massive festivals to intimate after parties… sweaty warehouses to pristine forests… the primeval Pine Barrens of New Jersey to the scorched desert of Black Rock City Nevada… no matter the setting, the venue, or the time of day, a set from Karmakanik is always mesmerizing, eclectic, and unforgettable.

Together with frequent collaborators Infinite Sun and Hypnotoad, Karmakanik founded PSI, who beginning in 2002 have thrown many of the most legendary and beloved underground parties on the east coast. In 2006, after 6 years spent collecting music and honing his skills in NYC, Karmakanik returned to his hometown of Philadelphia and became a resident DJ for the renowned Gaian Mind productions. For the last half decade, Karmakanik has teamed up with the Substratum collective to bring cutting edge psychedelic music and events to the City of Brotherly Love.

Equally at ease playing full-on bangers, hypnotic progressive, and groovy tech house, Karmakanik constantly expands musical boundaries and incorporates new sounds into his sets. With his unmatched versatility, effortless mixing technique, and energetic track selection, Karmakanik remains a favorite among dancefloor denizens and DJs alike. Smooth yet crunchy, raw yet refined, psychedelicious and immensely satisfying. The Sound of the Philly Underground!
