“Kinky D she rocks!”
DJ Magazine, UK
“..she has this encyclopaedic knowledge of music… it becomes almost anthropological…she can immediately smell what the crowd is wanting.”
Javier De Frutos, Choreographer and Olivier Award Winner, Time Out, London
“Kinky D, who no doubt has the best Afro on the Croisette, played consistently rocking music… Some punters were so exuberant it was like watching a four hour aerobic work out with smiles.”
The Hollywood Reporter, for the Middle East International Film Festival at Century Beach Club in Cannes
“Enter the realm of Kinky D and you walk into another world.”
“Kinky D kept the glitterati more than happy mixing Luther, Lionel and the Neptune's with flair”
Establishing herself as a DJ back in 1994, Kinky D’s ever-growing reputation and continuing success has seen her become a solid contender upon the global music scene.
Behind the decks Kinky D simply never fails to deliver. Her exceptional technical skills and variety of music – ranging from RnB, Soul, Hip-Hop, Disco and House, Top 40, Afro Beats, UK/US Garage, to Old Skool Club and Party Classics, combined with a statuesque persona and that added personable effervescent touch make her stand out and leave a lasting memory.
These days she’s bringing it to the masses, not only in her home-base of London with her high demand on the club scene, including appearances at the Ministry Of Sound, Fabric, China White and The End, but also with performances as far reaching as Mexico, The Dominican Republic, Thailand, Australia, Russia, South Korea, much of Europe and The U.A.E.
Kinky D’s mastering of her art continues to see her also booked for many high profile and prestigious global corporate events including the MTV Block Party, W Hotels (Doha & South Korea), Moet & Chandon, Vertu, Claridges, Harvey Nichols, and, for the past six years, at the Cannes Film Festival. This latter benchmark has propelled her yet further still, seeing her become the resident DJ and Music Director for the Abu Dhabi Film Festival for three consecutive years.
Alongside her personal appearances, as a broadcaster Kinky D has reached an even wider audience with her extensive repertoire, amassing over 800 hours with her own radio show ‘Xcess With Kinky D’ on BBC Radio 1Xtra. This led on to her bringing her hosting and producing skills further to the fore with her more of her own shows on well-known London FM stations Urban Fresh, Rhythm FM, Unknown FM and currently on www.back2backfm.net.
She has worked alongside some of the top names within the industry, including Kelis, Scissor Sisters, 50 Cent, Todd Terry, and the MOBO Award winners Steve Sutherland and Manny Norte. In the past twelve months her work has also encompassed playing alongside Motown legends The Supremes and The Temptations. She also played at the opening of Plan B’s debut film ‘Ill Manors’, as well as headlining in Cannes Film Festival with Kelis and in Doha at Reggae Sun Splash with Maxi Priest,
As her star continues to ascend, one thing is assured, for Kinky D it is ALL about the music.
