Birth of DJ K8
As a child Katie was surrounded by her singer/songwriter father’s influence. Hearing music on a daily basis it infused music in her blood. As an older child she played in band but preferred to enjoy music as a listener not creator.
At the age of 13 in 1993 her brother DJ TCORREY brought home records and two turntables and life was never the same musically.After moving home to pursue a career in music business management, Katie was soaked by a resurgence of electronic music in her life. Still at that point satisfied with being behind the scenes Katie became a “bedroom dj”. Finally after the urging of her brothers and friends Katie spent real time inside the studio and the rest is history.
K8 has become versed in multiple genre’s of electronic music. Flexibly playing Breakbeat, House, and Drum and Bass. K8’s true passion is in Liquid Drum and Bass. Anything with a rolling bassline, vocals, and licking highhat is where K8 finds her home.
Currently you can find K8 in a few new projects heading up residency on Drum And Bass Of Unknown Podcast, artist with Cognitive Music and Xtreme Music Group.
