Biography

Reggie Dokes is no stranger to the underground house and techno scene of Detroit. Being a fan of the music since he was 15 years old, he became one of those aspiring DJs mixing records in the basement of his parent’s home. Eventually he ventured out into the party scene of Detroit making a name for himself as a young DJ. Mixing everything from Chicago House to what was called Progressive Music back in the late 80’s, Reggie Dokes earned the respect of his peers and soon became a sought after DJ for the burgeoning Black teenage Detroit party scene. Once completing highschool, Reggie decided to leave the turntables alone and pursue a Bachelors degree from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. Upon his return to Detroit in the 90’s, his spirit and soul forgot about the house and techno scenes of Detroit until he ran into a friend in 1996, which created CyberSoul tqe. This promotional party group held underground parties throughout the Detroit metropolitan area, eventually landing a guest residency in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. This club called the “Amsterdam” was a popular night spot. It is at this club where Reggie Dokes met the innovator Mr. Derrick May. May took Reggie under his wings as a DJ and exposed him to the professional world of DJing. Once traveling to various venues around the country opening up for Derrick, he was hooked. After careful consideration, Reggie Dokes decided to leave the world of education as a teacher and pursue the music industry full time.
