Kimba is a fresh face behind the decks and has been bringing a storm of energy to her DJ career since it took flight in 2010. Kimba has graced the decks with her warrior-like presence throughout California from her home in San Francisco to San Diego, Los Angeles and Humboldt to Lake Tahoe and Reno, Nevada. Kimba brings a sound best described as Elegant Warrior Breaks, Drum&Bass & Techno ~ a fusion of Sweet and Heavy sounds programmed to take you on a journey through every mix. She brings deep dark basslines intertwined with melodic and musical themes to touch a cord in every dancer.
From the young age of 17, Kimba has been involved in the San Francisco Bay Area Electronic Music scene as a Promoter and now DJ for clubs, undergrounds, renegades, and festivals spanning over California. First turned on by the sweet jazzy sounds of deep house music, she eventually discovered the broken beat and has been in love ever since. Kimba always finds a way to incorporate the musical and instrumental nature of her first influences into the heavy forces of bass, breakbeats, drum&bass and even techno. She truly loves this music and community and is always stoked to play any gig, from a small party to a super club, a 10,000 person street faire or a radio show. Getting people onto the dancefloor and seeing smiling, dancing people is really what makes her happy to be a DJ.
Kimba has been rocking venues in San Francisco like Ruby Skye, Mighty SF, Kelly's Mission Rock, Public Works & ICON Ultra Lounge, Southern California venues like SPIN Nightclub and Kava Lounge in San Diego, Area 33 in LA and of course the infamous Burning Man Festival in Nevada. She has shared lineups with some amazing DJ's and Producers such as Carl Cox, Christopher Lawrence, the Crystal Method, Aphrodite, Meat Katie, Dopamine, Krafty Kuts, A. Skillz, Stanton Warriors, Elite Force, the Scumfrog & MiMOSA ....to name a few.
Kimba is an active member of the San Francisco based Opulent Temple collective and a resident DJ on www.NuBreaks.com radio show ReFreshed Fridaze, broadcasting live every Friday night from 7-11PST.
