"Kimba has rocked the decks with an infectious amount of energy when behind them, at some of Sydney's rocking-est parties"
An impulse decision back in 2000 found DJ Kimba with a crate of second-hand house vinyl and unlimited access to a mate’s Technic 1210s. It didn’t take long for her to find that she had both technical ability, and a passion for spinning sexy, jackin’ house music! She soon began playing alongside her friends at parties in and around her hometown of Auckland, New Zealand which in turn led to club gigs, including several appearances at the well known Aisha.
A stint in London followed, giving her the opportunity to truly immerse herself in underground dance music culture. It also exposed her to new delights, such as Techno, which was experiencing something of a renaissance at the time. As she worked this new found love into her repertoire, her sound became bumpier but still retained a certain jackin’ groove, making it more infectious than ever.
DJ Kimba now calls Sydney home. She is resident DJ for Subsonic Music, has supported the likes of Christopher Schwarzwalder, Stimming, Alexkid, Philip Bader and Guido Schneider, has appeared at some of Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland's most well-known parties including; Subsonic Music Festival, Black Market (Melbourne), 12 Steps to Recovery (Melbourne), Red Obsessions (Auckland), Strange Fruit, SPICE, End of the Line, S.A.S.H Sundays, [THE BOX], Beats&Pieces, Bare Essentials, Just:Wax, Oscillate, Significant Others, Golden Cage, Church of Techno, BUNKER, Symmetry, SPOiLT, Shake that Monkey and Eclectic Groove Show. Kimba is also known for her residencies at Sonunda and CUBE.
