LadyK is a unique DJ, producer and pole athlete based on Vancouver Island. She consistently delights crowds with her internationally-flavoured, syncopation-forward tribal house. LadyK occasionally adds sensual athleticism to her shows by pole dancing during her DJ sets, laying her claim to the title of “The World’s First Pole Dancing DJ.”
LadyK’s musical background includes completing a Bachelor of Music in Composition and Education at University of Toronto. There she was exposed to a myriad of genres of world music and discovered a passion for West African dance. LadyK also lived in Trinidad and Tobago for several months in 2011, which contributed to her love of soca music, steel pan drumming and syncopated rhythms.
LadyK has played festivals including Tall Tree, Song and Surf, Atmosphere Gathering, Diversity and Carrington Bay. She has shared the stage with the Librarian, Tanya Taqak, Dakini, Erica Dee and many more. She also was a part of an all-girl DJ collective, The Electrolytes in 2012-13 and held a residency during that time at The Flying Canoe in Courtenay, BC. She has performed all over the west coast of Canada and the U.S., including Hawaii and Mexico.
In 2018, LadyK has been celebrating her first release of her original production, “Fetche” on ISAVIS Records (Italy). She has had her mixes aired on IbizaLiveRadio.com (Spain) and RadioAttiva (Italy). She has also received support from Madorasindahouse, the #1 International Afrohouse blog and Youtube channel out of Greece. She has been hard at work in the studio with more music to release in the spring of 2018. The future is bright for this internationally-minded DJ, producer and pole dancer!
