Biography

Spinning records in clubs since he was fifteen, KERIMtheDJ harnessed his skills on the local reggae club circuit in his hometown of Brooklyn, NY. Setting himself apart with his ability to smoothly mix the foundations of DJing with the modern party-rocking techniques of today, club owners overlooked his young age and presented him with a residency at the age of sixteen.
 
After a brief hiatus used to focus on his studies and instrumental interests, Kerim decided to return to his disc jockey roots during his junior year of college. He quickly created a following and a reputation for himself as the best DJ on campus, sweeping the competitions held by the student body. His accolades continue to grow, as he is now the reigning champion of Washington DC's 8-3-1 DJ Battle.
 
Kerim's innovative style (influenced by his time as a percussionist) has allowed him to move crowds of all creeds while showing off his unique skill set. Known for his unpredictable selection, he has been spotted at a wide array of venues including Marquee NYC, The Park at 14th, and Heist DC.
