Beats by DJ Compose

February 3 6:30PM - 9:30PM Swell Pool & Bar

Jay Ablan, aka DJ Compose
by Michael McGrath / FluxHawaii / Turntablist

Growing up in the turntablist age, Jay Ablan, known as Compose on the DJ circuit, began honing his technique with a small group of friends focused initially on scratching. Creating routines unheard of in Hawai‘i at the time, the versatile style and explosive showmanship of Ablan became the signature of the Nocturnal Sound Krew. A two-time world champion of the ITF DJ Battle and recent Hawai‘i regional winner of the Red Bull Thre3style, Ablan effortlessly transitions in and out of hip-hop, rock, soul, indie and dance classics. Among his many residencies at clubs around Honolulu, Compose is a founder of the fiercely popular dance party, Shake + Pop, as well as the music director of Addiction Nightclub at The Modern Hotel. Before embarking to Los Angeles to compete for a seat to the Thre3style National Finals in Orlando, FLUX sat down with the prolific DJ to discuss his come up in the turntablist age, the rise of his close-knit Nocturnal Sound Krew, and his advice for not getting “caught up” in the whirlwind industry.
