Electronic music is a living, breathing entity, whose brightest talents grow with it. Like the music she loves, Winnipeg’s Kilma manifests this ethos. A master of innovation and reimagining her craft, she’s become one of North America’s rising stars and tastemakers.
Whether she’s rockin’ the crowd in Costa Rica, presenting the broad spectrum of her vision on MixLive.TV, or redefining the role of the DJ in the middle of the dance floor at her own club night, “Interactive”, Kilma is carving out a unique space in the dance music cosmos. After years in the bass realm as Sw@t, she began to grow in new directions, exploring and finding new fulfillment in house, techno, and breakbeats. Truly great artists embrace reinvention, and Kilma’s metamorphosis is no different. While her love for bass and snares still shines through, it’s filtered through her passion for house and techno rhythms, making for sets that take the listener on a journey, destination inward. Since this artistic rebirth, Kilma has been pushing the limits of the notions of “artist” and “listener”, merging their worlds, and creating a new dynamic. Not just a DJ, her original work as a producer reflects her eclectic sensibilities, while her published works in such publications as Decoded Magazine, DJ Mag Canada, Digital DJ Tips, The Passionate DJ, and her own website, DontKilmaVibe.com, have given her a voice far beyond the dance floor.
Kilma’s live performance is what defines her creative influence. Her clear understanding of music shines through, and her innate ability to control a crowd, along with her unique mixing, exclusive tunes, and an unparalleled presence, continue to set the tone for her showcase sets. The future of dance music lives in Kilma.
