A founding member of the Invisibl Skratch Piklz and Triple Threat DJ crews, Shortkut is one of the West Coast’s most respected turntablists. Born Jon Cruz, Shortkut began DJing in 1987 at the age of 12 and soon joined his first DJ crew, Just 2 Hype!, shortly thereafter. At 18 he helped found the Invisibl Skratch Piklz with Mix Master Mike, Q-Bert, and DJ Disk. The Piklz went on to become one of the most influential DJ crews of the ’90s, leading Shortkut to a membership in the Beat Junkies and remixes for Ras Kass and Ozomatli.
2012 was one of the most active years of Shortkut's career including a national tour for the Beat Junkies 20th year anniversary, co-headlining the Heavy Boogie produced adidas Originals Breathe & Stop tour throughout Asia alongside Maseo (De La Soul) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) in August and a 2x4 set with the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff at the Do-Over in San Francisco.
In November, he also co-headlined the adidas Originals Laced Up tour throughout Asia with his Triple Threat crew members Dj Apollo & DJ Vinroc alongside DJ Tony Touch and Heavy Boogie, finishing off the year with a stellar NYE party in Moscow.
A diverse selection in music combined with his turntablist roots makes Shortkut one of the worlds most sought after party rockers on the planet.
