John Collini’s first time DJing was for a west coast swing house party in Maryland on New Year’s Eve. Afterwards he quickly began DJing for the many local DC area social dances where he fell in love with the craft. Since then, John has played for socials and competitions at MADJam, Swing Fling, DCSX, Countdown Swing Boston, and for local social dances in the Sacramento and San Francisco areas.

John’s passion for DJing is driven by filling the floor with happy dancers and taking them on a smooth journey through a variety of genres and emotions. He equally enjoys the high energy of early night sets and the intrigue of late night sets. Adaptability and versatility for John is key. He regularly seeks out for the best of every WCS music genre, new and old, to inspire the dancers he plays for. John also loves the challenge DJing competitions from Newcomers to Champions, balancing the competition needs with the inspiration competitors need to put on their best show.

John’s favorite genres to play are R&B, hip-hop, house/electronic, funk, jazz, soul, acoustic, and lyrical. John shares his social and competition music on his Spotify page.
