The bond established between the alluring Kim Lee and Kat Nova, collectively known as KimKat, is founded on a shared passion for music. With a collective talent for recognizing exciting melodies, and an ability to excite a crowd like few others, the multi-talented women have experienced a meteoric rise in the music industry.
In describing a KimKat appearance, Kim Lee says, “We love the energy. For example when we play at festivals the crowd is ready to party and most importantly we love interacting with our fans. Kat would jump in the crowd and the fans would go crazy! So we think nowadays DJ’ing isn’t just about showing up and playing music; it’s a performance and people come to see you and have a good time.” They are obviously doing something right. They made their New York debut at Pacha NYC on Jan 10 this year playing along side Michael Woods. The response was so strong that they were booked to come back on Feb 14, and had an equally huge impact playing on the same bill as R3hab. Add that to recent appearances at Ultra Festival Japan, the Mad Decent Boat Party, Electric Paradise in Dominican Republic, and on the Steve Aoki tour, they are primed to become the next female DJ/artists to blow up worldwide.
Prior to the formation of KimKat, Kim Lee was known for her modeling career. She has graced many international covers for Maxim, FHM, GQ and Esquire Magazine and has also won 2011 #1 FHM 100 Sexiest women in the world in Singapore. She has been in many major music videos from Katy Perry, Far East Movement ,LMFAO and Kanye West. Kim's been playing the piano since she was 8 years old.
Kat Nova, professional swimmer, Russian born in Moscow moved to the United States at the age of 17 and pursued her dreams as an actress and dj. Nova was going to school and soon graduated and worked in Finance until things changed. The girls soon started touring from every country in Asia to Europe.
Their career will move into the next phase over the next months as they begin to release their debut productions. Out soon is Fade Away feat. Angelique, on Nervous Records.
