About Your Host » Corey Valentine



Corey Valentine
Corey Valentine began DJ’ing underground house music in 1997. From funky and jackin, to deep and techy, Corey loves to explore all things on the funky side of house music. Known for his consistency and finesse behind the mixer, Corey creates cohesive sets that seamlessly flow from beginning to end. As a native of Illinois, Corey was influenced by Chicago powerhouses like Derrick Carter, Paul Johnson, CZR, and Bad Boy Bill. Exposure to these legendary DJ’s and producers, along with his background studying trumpet and other brass and percussion instruments, have helped shape his brand of funky house music.

After relocating to Minneapolis in 1999, Corey founded his company Box Five Productions. During the several years that followed, he produced weekly shows at local clubs including Starlite Lounge, the Elbow Room, 101 Blu, Fahrenheit, and Subo. In 2012, he rebranded the company into Box Five Beats, where he now produces a weekly internet-based webcast show complete with live video content to accompany the music.

Corey has been part of the Minneapolis house music scene for more than 15 years, and has been fortunate enough to share his music with dance floors across the country. His energy behind the decks and on the dance floor reflect his true passion for the music. “House music has always made me feel so alive. I play music that moves me, and I hope others will feel it too.”
