When he's not DJing, Konstantin can be spotted around town performing original music as a singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist
Coming soon :)
At long last, after combing through droves of stale plug-and-play digital DJs, the search for your diamond-in-the-rough has finally come to an end. Enter Konstantin, GLT's resident vinyl connoisseur, and answer to all things authentic and certified fresh.
Konstantin began his journey DJing and collecting records as a teen in the 90s, spinning underground parties, and hawking DIY hip hop mixtapes at Chicago flea markets. If good music was the name of the game, then chances are Konstantin was there front and center, adding ambiance to house parties, concerts, night clubs, and large-scale celebrations alike. Over the years, his client list has included The Penninsula Hotel, The Chicago Cubs, The Museum of Science & Industry, DrumBar, and Dark Matter Coffee to name a few.
A natural tastemaker from his advent, Konstantin is perpetually on the lookout for new cutting-edge tracks, while also keeping up with his favorites in R&B, rock, pop, hip hop, funk, indie, jazz, Latin, soul, samba, and everything in between. Whether you're hoping to hear a dusty blues rarity at your brew pub barbecue blowout, or impress your hipster co-workers with art pop classics at a elegant winery, Konstantin's in the business of not only understanding, but enhancing your vibe.

If you want to up the anti on your musical street cred even further, Konstantin boasts one of the finest collections of rare 78rpm records in town. Think: golden-era jukebox singles spanning the genres of jazz, RnB, early rock, blues, doowop, and pop. Whether you'd like him to spin some nostalgic standards (a la Ray Charles, Billie Holiday, Everly Brothers, Etta James, Gene Vincent, Duke Ellington, the Platters, etc.) or dig deep for some lesser known gems, Konstantin can grace your special event with these timeless classics.
Konstantin is a very chill guy, and knows all there is to know about what music to play when. Our wedding didn’t have set times for dinner/dancing/etc so the music he played really guided the vibe and timeline...more casual music while people ate then more upbeat/party appropriate as the evening progressed. He’s easy to work with in the sense that we told him what kind of music we like and he knew exactly what to play that fit both our tastes and a wedding. I thought he did a much better job than many big company DJs I’ve seen at other weddings lately, and would use him again. All of the musical cues were on time for different events/parts of the ceremony/etc.
