About DJ J Scrilla

DJ J Scrilla is the co-host of the Art on the Blockchain (“AOTB”) Podcast and prominent member of the Crypto Art and Crypto Music community. Scrilla has carved out a career as a critically acclaimed record producer, audio engineer and DJ.  He has deep roots in both the traditional music industry and the blockchain network. 

Scrilla first officially spoke about cryptoart at a Government blockchain meetups in DC. A year later he spoke at the now legendary Rare Digital Art Festival in New York, co-runs an Art On The Blockchain Meet-Up group with Cynthia Gayton, and has delivered presentations titled “Intro To Crypto Art and Crypto Music” in Atlanta, Baltimore, and DC. He was a panelist and after party DJ at the Creative Tech Week Blockchain Panel in NYC.  Consensys also recently booked Scrilla and his AOTB Podcast co-host Cynthia  to cover the Ethereal summit this past May in NYC which led to a three part podacst series.

Scrilla is also the creator and manager of one of the most prominent memes in the Bitcoin space – DJPEPE – the first ever Bitcoin meme to escape the blockchain and teach humans cryptoart.

Additionally, Scrilla is working on a series of crypto music videos with some totally obscure members of the community. He recently released “Cant Smoke A Bitcoin” featuring Peter Schiff and Chris Derose which also featured the first ever Proof Of Share token “CANTSMOKEBTC” issued through Counterparty (XCP.) Another video is on the way in the fall.

Scrilla began making cryptoart through the Rare Pepe Trading channels in 2016 and has since issued more than 40 cryptoart pieces. You can also check out some of his pieces here.  He has over 20 years of DJ and record producing experience and has carved out productions with hip hop legends such as Cassidy, Raekwon, Mobb Deep, Nipsey Hussle and hundreds more.
