Box Five Radio | Corey Valentine | Minneapolis MN

From punchy and jackin, to deep and techy, Corey Valentine loves to explore all things on the funky side of house music. He began DJ’ing in 1997 after being introduced to the underground music scene and instantly falling in love with house music. As a native of Illinois, Corey was influenced by Chicago powerhouses like Derrick Carter, Paul Johnson, CZR, and Bad Boy Bill. Exposure to these musical legends, along with his background studying trumpet and other brass and percussion instruments, have helped shape his funky brand of house music.

After relocating to Minneapolis in 1999, Corey started his production 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 his company into Box Five Beats, where he produces an internet-based broadcast 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 he has made it his goal to bring house music to as many people who will listen. 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.”
