“Dance Kill Move is definitely the one who I identify the most as doing something closer to what ‘zouk bass’ is in my head” – Branko.
Dance Kill Move is a Swedish/Colombian dj/producer based in Uppsala Sweden. Consisting of Ricardo Ocampo Daza. DKM started out as an Electro act back in 2007 but shifted focus more and more towards tropical bass. In 2010 after a trip to Colombia DKM won a remix competition for Akwaaba Music making him a part of the Tropical Bass world. After that there have been numerous productions both in Moombahton and other genres staying true to the Latino influence coming from his roots as a Colombian. When Buraka Som Sistema made their huge Boiler Room set presenting Zouk Bass to the world, Ricardo instantly fell in love with the rhythm and started producing Zouk bass. Soon after Branko from B.S.S. among others picked up DKM’s track ‘Zoukette’ and thus positioning him as one of the big names in Zouk Bass. As a Dj in he has driven several clubs (Club New Kid, Smålands Live, Tabberas, GLHF) in Uppsala as well as having residencies at up to 5 different venues. He’s played with and warmed up to artists such as Marcus Price & Carli, Style of Eye, Copyflex, The Very Best, Nääk & Nimo, Adam Tensta, Linda Pira, Mashup International among others. The kind of music he plays depends on the occasion but at the moment the genres that mainly build up his sets are Zouk Bass, Hip Hop, Dancehall and other Tropical Bass genres.
