South African born DJ/Producer Kimesh Desai aka Camouflage now residing in Florida USA after having lived in London UK is an artist dedicated to a cause towards House Music. An energetic DJ constantly improving his talents and an ambassador for the scene has been actively involved since 1997. With over 15 years involvement, Camouflage has worked himself from the dancefloors of Johannesburg where he spend many weekends absorbing the unity and love of House Music and then moving to LoNDON in 2003. It was not before long that Camouflage aquired a pair of turntables and a mixer and becan a whole new journey into the sound of House Music.
Once in London, there was no stopping the passion feuled from the scene back in South Africa and Camouflage began finding ways to enter the scene in London by attending various parties and nights being held and aquired gigs at many of Londons Leading Nightclub such as PACHA and MINSISTRY OF SOUND through Dirtydubbin and also landed a residency in 2007 at the well renowned island of IBIZA. with many of these great venues and parties, Camouflage gained extensive knowledge and decided to venture into a whole new avenue for the love of the music.This was to create a lifestyle from House Music as this led to the many great oppertunities for Camouflage himself and it was time to share the love. This led to the beggining of CHICAGO HOUSE FM (CHFM).
CHFM was started in September 2008 right after leaving Ibiza and once back in the UK, Camouflage began the first show. After many weeks of continious support and success a second show began and by the end of 2 months running, CHFM had 6 shows running live from Scotland, London, Eastborne and Manchester. This had opened up a whole new world of unity and love based on the music and things started falling into place for CHFM.
With the success of CHFM by this time more doors opened up for Camouflage and he bagn to play outside of London and played Manchester, Bristol, Eastbourne, Leeds and many other places in the UK and then also went on and played in Bulgaria, France and South Africa. While spreading the CHFM gospel, Camouflage started seeking more within the music and this led to his venture into the world of production.
Having very little music knowledge and armed with just that of being a DJ, the passion took Camouflage to a whole new dimention of music and with persistance he landed his first release in 2008 on Flexual Records (South Africa). After the first release he began to spend more time on the radio and focus on CHFM and has since landed releases on GUESTHOUSE, TANGO, FLAPJACK, PHOBIC, DEEPFUNK, FUNKFIELD and many others and had gained the support of the industries big hitters DJ Sneak, DJ DAN, TERRY MULLEN, GIOM, SONNY FODERA, COLETTE, HEATHER, MARK FARINA, KINKY MOVEMENT, INLAND KNIGHTS and many others.
Camouflage then moved to the USA (Florida) after meeting his wife and this led to the greater uprising of CHFM. Having spend 3 years already in the USA Today CHFM has over 51 DJS from across the globe and over 100 000 listeners worldwide. CHFM now hosts shows in USA, UK, Europe and South Africa and is gaining a huge following by the people who reflect the message and value of HOUSE MUSIC. Camouflage has also played in Minneapolis, Chicago, Oregon and WMC Miami since being in the USA.
CHFM has also hosted many parties at SXSW and WMC in the USA and throw parties in EUROPE and around the globe. With the success of this, CHICAGO HOUSE FM Records began with his partner and wifeCHFM records have been putting out releases based on new talent and passion as well as growing the scene in respect to the ethics of HOUSE MUSIC. Camouflage has also started a second label KEEP IT REAL HOUSE MUSIC which aims at bringing out talents in many as he started with prodution and to just grow the talent into positive and powerful producers to make an impact for themselves and those around them.
In many ways, camouflage is all about the HOUSE music, dedicating every second he has to growing and projecting the positive vibe of the music, the self awareness and growth potential it has when you believe in it. House Music and CHFM is not about a specific lifestyle or trend but rather a way of life to actively shape your lifestyle to be the best you can be at it.
