Over the last three years, Jus Ske (Justin Salguero) has re-defined the term resident DJ. A staple not only in New York nightlife, but also globally, Jus Ske has taken the helm of 1OAK in New York City every Saturday for the past 156 weeks. Each night Jus performs, he takes command of the room, spinning everything from hip-hop to house, 80s to Motown, top 40 hits to mashups, keeping the crowd dancing until the second he turns off his serrato box.
Jus Ske also likes to add a special energy to the room, spontaneously bringing special guests such as Kanye West, Kid-Cudi, and Wale for impromptu performances. Being such a prominent figure in nightlife, Jus draws the likes of Madonna, Jay-Z, Usher, and many other A-list clientele to join him for a night of music at 1OAK. When mogul Roman Abromovich was in New York last summer, he heard about the buzz of Jus Ske and after a Saturday night at 1OAK, hired Jus to be the DJ each year for his famous New Years Eve parties in St. Barths.
Jus Ske is also reputable for DJ'ing Madonna's Oscar party every year in Los Angeles, as well as being Pharell's tour DJ. Jus Ske is a fixture in Page Six of the New York Post, being interviewed and sighted behind the turntables at 1OAK. Not only does Jus Ske's skill and ability translate to the dance floor but also the bar.
The Saturday night party at 1OAK are known throughout the nightlife industry as some of the most lucrative nights New York has ever seen. Jus Ske attracts the notorious big spenders of nightlife, who when in town splurge at the opportunity to party in the same room that Jus Ske is spinning. In addition to the amount of money that is being spent, the party itself hosts the image of one of the most consistent parties New York has ever seen. With the line stretching down 17th street each and every Saturday, no matter where you start your night in New York City, you always find yourself ending it at 1OAK.
