Geno Cochino's hard earned veteran experience in all genres of Bass music has helped him to

successfully ignite dance floors and make waves in the dance music community since day one.

With years spent studying music and touring in bands, including The Bay Area based World

Fusion group Hamsa Lila, Geno was able to tap into new music styles and learn various

instruments including the Morrocan Guimbri and the Turkish Saz. He also toured internationally

with the group for 4 years as well as played in everything from punk, alternative rock, to heavy

metal bands since he was 13.

When Geno stepped into the electronic music scene in 2004 he helped to push an emerging

sound from London that came to be known lovingly as dubstep.

From his various releases alongside veteran producer SPL including 2013's chart topping E.P.

BOUNCE, new music from his project "Smokey and The Bandit" as well as his forthcoming

releases under his own imprint West Side Dubz, Geno continues to move into the future with no

hesitation to embrace new and emerging genres of dance music as well as infuse it all with a

blast of musicality.

He also hosts a weekly radio show on the London based, award winning, internet radio station

SUB.FM where he showcases new and emerging artists as well as special guests and his own
