Lyricist, DJ, Curator, Audio Engineer and Event Planner.
These are only a few of the titles Koleco Elizaire aka “Knoimnot” holds. This young artist based out of Prince George’s County, Maryland is showing everyone just what it means to be a jack of all trades; not only does he have a passion for his music, he also shares the same passion for connecting with likeminded individuals and creating whatever type of art he can. Knoimnot is currently on his first solo tour entitled the “Knoimnot Creative Collaboration Tour,” where he’s becoming immersed in even more connection, creativity and collaboration.
RESPECT.: What separates you from other djs and why do you call yourself an artistic DJ?
Knoimnot: The one thing that separates me from other DJs is that my goal isn’t just to make the crowd move but more so make the crowd understand that it’s okay to feel, it’s okay to dance, it’s okay to express. I want every single person in the crowd to experience my vibe and understand what kind of artist I am through sound and expression. A lot of DJs are missing or don’t have the quality of intimacy and I personally think I’m blessed enough to touch a large amount of people in one room at the same time. I honestly think being a sound selector is an art form and that’s why I would consider myself an artistic DJ.
