KAKA has been blazing trails for female DJs in China since she burst onto the scene in the late ‘00s. Her achievements include winning the Pioneer DJ championship in 2015, which cemented her status as a respected pioneer in the industry. However, it was in 2021 that KAKA really made her mark, with a breakout year that saw her become a household name around the world.
KAKA's DJing style is as diverse as it is impressive. She moves effortlessly between chopped-up pop songs and reassembled club monsters, displaying a delicate sense of balance that is rare in the industry. Her sets are filled with broody basslines that threaten to break through the stereo, as well as soaring melodies that are perfect for a lonely drive home. This approach has earned her accolades both in China and internationally, with the likes of Laidback Luke inviting her to contribute a guest mix and a busy festival schedule that took her across Europe and North America.
While KAKA is best known as a DJ, she is also a multifaceted artist with interests that extend beyond the turntables. She has dabbled in China's fashion world, making appearances at fashion week events and lending her unique style to various projects. In 2021, she took some time to explore her production skills, releasing her debut track ‘Needs’ to critical acclaim. She followed that up with the emotive ‘Be With You’, a track that showcases her growing prowess in the studio.
With her talents in DJing, production, and fashion, KAKA is a force to be reckoned with in the world of electronic dance music. Her diverse skills and unique style have earned her a legion of fans around the world, and she shows no signs of slowing down. As we move into 2023, KAKA is poised to take the world by storm, continuing to innovate and inspire with her music and her vision.
