Reggie Dokes has been considered by some of his fans as one of detroit’s most underrated and overlooked producers/ Djs in electronic music (house / techno). However ,this hat not stopped him from contributing music that is undefinable, ecletic, spiritual and soulful.

House records coming from Chicago, New York and specially Europe, ultimately influenced him to become a Dj and eventually a producer.
