DK Watts

A veteran of the underground house music scene, DK Watts has made a lasting impression with a number of quality releases and remixes on his Bounce House Recordings label as well as many other respected Imprints.
He produced music under under the Short Bud Kids alias and was a member of the production duo from 2003-2011.  Respected former I DJ Magazine journalist and This Is Why We Dance blogger Russell Deeks described the Short Bus Kids as “Two of the best producers in deep house right now, no question, and getting more eclectic as they get more confident” in his blog when he named his 2009 Artists of the Year.

Release after release on DK Watts’ Bounce House Recordings label has generated worldwide recognition from his fellow peers and industry publications such as I DJ Magazine, De:Bug, DJ Mag, Inhale, Chicago 5 Magazine and DMC Update.

Currently, DK Watts lives in Amsterdam, The Netherlands after relocating from San Francisco, California in 2009.  He has been fortunate enough to perform in many cities and countries in his career (Los Angeles, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, Belgium, Lithuania and Italy…to name a few).  He is the channel programmer for Digitally Imported’s (www.di.fm) House and Funky House Stations and is the owner of Bounce House Studios.
