My Story

DJ KMBRK (pronounced KIM-bahrk) is a fresh face making waves in Chicago’s music scene, blending youthful energy with a seasoned musical sensibility. Though new to the world of DJing, DJ KMBRK is no stranger to the language of music, having been classically trained in piano since childhood and expanding his skills to include mastery of the keyboard and organ.

He started spinning in 2023 after DJing a New Year’s Eve party. A local Chicago radio DJ happened to be at that party and suggested that he learn how to use a DJ Controller, especially after being able to successfully control the crowd just by using his iPhone. That was all the motivation he needed! Fueled by this encouragement, KMBRK seized the waning waning days of the pandemic to hone his craft, while seeking the mentorship of some of Chicago’s DJ elites.

Renowned for his unique versatility, DJ KMBRK masterfully fuses a variety of genres—from Hip Hop and R&B to Afrobeats, Dancehall, Reggae, House, Steppers, Top 40, and beyond.

His intuitive skills have already earned him gigs across a range of venues in the Chicagoland area, extending even to national platforms. Gifted with the innate ability to read the pulse of a crowd, he crafts sets that perfectly resonate with his audience.

His moniker, derived from the iconic Kimbark Avenue in East Woodlawn, Chicago, reflects his deep connection to the local culture.

Experience the magnetic soundscape curated by DJ KMBRK at your next event, and let him create an atmosphere you never knew you needed!

This DJ brings the best blend of Chicago house, old school, and new urban sounds together. He is by far one of the best, if not the best I have seen do it in a while.
