DJ Tukutz first got into DJ-ing in the summer of 1995 while spending his time at illegal raves and warehouse parties, where his passion for the scene and music began. He started playing at local raves and parties in Japan's underground hip-hop scene, before moving to South Korea in 2000 to attend the Technics DJ School. After returning from the academy, he partnered up with Tablo and headed to the States. He worked and DJ-ed on radio shows, live events and clubs around the Boston and New York City area.
DJ Tukutz arrived back from the military on August 9, 2011.
In 2012 it was revealed DJ Tukutz & Mithra Jin were no longer signed to Woollim Entertainment. Around June/July several hints were given to the possible Epik High comeback in the second half on the year such as the YG Entertainment Stock Report, a tweet from a fashion Designer which said that they're making the costumes for Epik High's comeback under YG, and a tweet from Jerry K to Tablo that said he is anticipating the new Epik High album. On July 25, 2012, YG officially announced that Epik High would make their comeback in September with 99, after a three year hiatus as a group.
