DJ Renegade Biography, Life Story, Career Journey, and Facts:

Dj RenegadeDJ Renegade, aka. Kevin Gopie, was born in the UK with parents from Guyana. He started dancing in 1982 at the age of 12 due to the influence of his sister and her boyfriend at the time. From early on in his dance journey, he was attracted to hip-hop culture and quickly got involved with the London scene. 

He started DJ’ing around ‘87 when he was in his second year of college. He was introduced to it by a DJ named Dazzle Fresh. According to Renegade “[Dazzle Fresh] was just so dope, I was like: ‘I wanna do that’”. In the first few years of his DJ career, he DJed for UK lyricist Blade. He later joined DJ crews such as Sons of Noise in 1992 and Scratch Perverts.

DJ-Renegade has been one of the most impactful DJs on breaking and dance culture at large. He’s been invited to DJ, judge, and commentate on many international events. He also poured tons of energy into coaching the dancers in the UK. Gopie lived in Denmark during 2003-2004. At the time, he felt the UK scene had dropped off compared to what it was in the 80s.

Bboy Storm, who was visiting Renegade at the time, told him to do something about it. This inspired Renegade to start dance crews Flowsaic, and Soul Mavericks in 2005, and later Monsterz in 2010. 

Renegade is well respected by the dancers he coaches. Nicknamed “Coach Kev”, the following mini-documentary captures his thoughts about training dancers.
