J.Bonkaz is by far one of the music industry's most prolific up and coming producers / singer-songwriters. His polished ear, unique drum patterns, chord progressions and deep melodies set him apart from many other producers. Born in San Diego, CA, but raised in Jamaica, Queens, New York since 2, he gained a strong passion for music at a very young age. He has been playing piano since the age of five and composing hard-hitting tracks since the age of thirteen.
"I have always been around music, so it's like it just comes natural for me."
In 2005, J.Bonkaz landed his first placement with 50 Cent, producing P.I.M.P. pt.2. The song was placed on 50 Cent's Bulletproof video game & soundtrack, which sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide. Around the same time, he decided to relocate to Atlanta, GA to pursue his dreams of working in the music industry. Since then, he has been working on perfecting his craft and building his brand by working with many independent and major artists. He has produced, written and/or mixed on records for Big Sean, Cyhi The Prynce, Roscoe Dash, King Los, Chinx, French Montana, Red Cafe, Bobby V and more. He's also appeared on countless mixtapes including some hosted by Kay Slay, DJ Drama, and DJ Scream.
In 2010 J.Bonkaz co-founded Genius Klub, a music production company, which he is also an active member of. As a producer, engineer, and song writer, he works closely with artists to develop their talents and produce the highest quality recordings. He has an innate ability to hear complex harmonies and help his clients fine-tune their vocals. A recording artist himself, J.Bonkaz understands the attentiveness required to elevate talents in others.
In 2017 J.Bonkaz founded Born Genius, an independent record label, distributor and publishing company.
J.Bonkaz is self-motivated. His talents combined with his strong will and determination are exactly why he's next. The goal is set. Nothing will stop him from achieving it.
"My goal is to always be in the position to put those around me into better positions."
