Official Biography (courtesy of KopaTechnic)
Combine a platinum/BMI award-winning dance music producer/remixer/musician, an internationally praised recording artist, and an innovative lyricist/rapper and the result is KopaTechnic.
Dance music has been evolving since its birth in the mid-80's and nobody understands the evolution of such music like R.K. Jackson (Madonna's"Love Don't Live Here Anymore Remix (Triple Platinum Smash)", RuPaul's "Little Drummer Boy", Cece Peniston's "Finally"). Born in the era of disco and funky-style tunes, Jackson has forever been a believer in the celebratory message of dancing and what music can have on a person's soul. Ringleader Jackson is proud of his troupe, “What makes us unique is that you can actually hear the instruments we use.”

Amber Dirks (Reflex Ft. Amber Dirks “Feel The Love”, DJ JST & Amber Dirks “Rejoice”, and Power 2 Move “Stepping Out”) offers her vocals to the group. Jackson and Dirks have collaborated together with Markus Schulz on the single “Do You Want Me” and have been waiting to get back in the studio ever since. An old friend, Jimmie Alston, was more than willing to dedicate his skills and energy to the new project and it was then that this trio became what is now KopaTechnic.
In 2010, Welcome To Kopatechnic was released to the world with a mixture of genres from dance/house, soul/R&B and even hip-hop. This project was well received from DJ's and fans domestically and internationally. Their vision is to make quality music for enthusiasts to enjoy.
Recently, Kopatechnic released the empowering and smooth soulful groove anthem “Wonder Woman” and the uplifting pop track, “Waiting At Home” which is available on iTunes! There are plans to release a remix album of all dance material called 127 later this summer to satisfy a core of their loyal fanbase.
