Biography of Karim.
|Real name / ||Karim Chehab|
*DJ since the summer of 1988, I believe it is my ultimate passion !
The production part came much later and is a logical, complementary
aspect of my musical life.
I can rock a dancefloor with sets going from 2hours til' 12 hours, that's
how i was brought up with my residencies in the Parisian club scene from
1991 until 2000.
*My first production on vinyl was released on Lisbon's imprint Kaos Records,
under the moniker Kimo Sa-abi, in 1996 (Kaos 21).
In 2000, i teamed up with Hafid Fido and created the label Fire Music, which
took us on an adventure of 13 releases, until i left the label in 2003.
I was producing under DJ Kimo, which was my nickname and official DJ name back then.
*At times when everybody else in Paris was making french-filtered house, Hafid and i were just making dancefloor-oriented tracks in a genre that tagged to us as Tech-House.
Our label received solid support from the likes of Danny Tenaglia, Satoshi Tomiie, Roger Sanchez, DJ Sneak,Steve Lawler, Hipp-E & Halo Varga & more..
*Now a resident in Barcelona, i've launched Dope Beasts Records in January 2013, a vinyl imprint dedicated to Edits and Reworks in various genres.
Will soon launch a new label dedicated to my electronic productions as well as other talents.
What counts now is the future and how we're going to make a difference.. or not !
