About Kemi

A passionate and professional DJ! My energy behind the decks, as well as fun and personable nature will guarantee to wow your guests!
DJ
London
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Music has always been the first love of London born, Kemi. As a fearless DJ, Producer and Radio Presenter, she never fails to keep her crowd on their toes, always leaving them wanting more. Possessing adventurism and creative intuition, she likes to experiment with a wide range of house and underground sounds, both old and new. Due to growing up in a very musical home, Kemi’s influences come from a broad spectrum of genres. As a result she is a skilled open format selector, capable of tailoring a set suitable for each individual occasion. Kemi can play all genres including house, pop, reggae, drum ‘n’ bass, jungle, soul, hip-hop r’n’b, jazz, chill out, rock, trap, grime, Afro-beats, reggaeton, indie and any other style the client may request. Her versatility means she is just as comfortable playing to a field full of festival goers, as she is entertaining guests at a private function or corporate event. Kemi’s musical journey kicked off back in 2005, at which point she was spinning vinyl, and better known by the moniker ‘Jessica Rabbit’. Since then, she has played at countless gigs all over London, the UK and internationally. Her ever growing repertoire includes, Ministry Of Sound, Egg Club, The Diesel Store (Miami), Spotify HQ, The Mayfair Club, a season in Ibiza, numerous private celebrity parties & weddings, brand launches and residencies at private members clubs and hotel bars/restaurants. Currently, Kemi is resident DJ for a Central London Private Members Club, and the London branch of Morning Gloryville – the international, sober, morning party. Here at MGV you can catch her dropping vocal, uplifting house classics. She also DJ’s regularly at Spotify HQ, as well as hosting her monthly show, The Dub Kitchn Showcase, on Bloop Radio. Kemi is a passionate and professional artist. Her energy behind the decks, as well as a fun and personable nature, has taken her far throughout her career, with most finding her easy and pleasurable to work with.

I cannot recommend Kemi highly enough We did much of the organisation of our wedding ourselves in less than 12 months so gave Kemi an outline brief of genres rather than specific tracks to be played. She covered all our bases and enabled us to throw an amazing wedding reception party, with a happy dancefloor until the end of the night. Kemi communicated brilliantly throughout the booking process and the lead up to our big day THANK YOU SO MUCH Kemi

My wife and I needed to book someone for our wedding but had no idea how it all worked so we got in contact with DJ Kemi who explained all the details really clearly including the fee, the types of music she could play and about the set up she had. She brought everything we needed to our venue including the speakers, the lighting and her decks. Once she started playing our guests were all up on the dancefloor straight away. This was really important to us as we wanted it to feel like a proper party and for our guests to have as much fun as possible. Everyone loved all the songs that she played and had such a great time. I would definitely recommend DJ Kemi for your wedding day!
