From the studio to
Kim Anh has been a part of underground dance culture for well over a decade, cultivating her own sound from the early styles of house, acid house and techno. From her vinyl collector beginnings, she has gone on to become a globally recognized DJ/producer and singer-songwriter. With releases on influential labels such as EMI, Robert Johnson Live, Gigolo International and Afro Acid, she’s crafted a sound that is uniquely her own. She has produced and written a diverse catalog of music including collaborations with well known dance artists such as Roy Davis Jr., Juan Maclean, Eli Escobar, Massimiliano Pagliara, Peaches, Oliver $, Joyce Muniz and Grammy-nominated artist Sam Sparro.
Her debut solo EP “Shadows” on Yellow Year Records included an instantly classic collection of remixes courtesy of notable producers and legends – Roy Davis Jr. and Eli Escobar. The track combined her distinctive sultry voice with pitch perfect production, including stellar reviews from the likes of THUMP, Dummy Magazine and Discobelle.
Her follow up EP “Make Me Feel” was described by Data Transmission as “two very well produced acid-laced vocal numbers that have caught the attention of the ‘who’s who’ of the global underground”. Garnering support from Maceoplex, Tony Humphries and Sam Divine on her Defected Radio show, “Make Me Feel” also premiered on Los Angeles’ KCRW.
Her most recent collaboration with Joyce Muniz, “Give Me The Taste”, earned them a Top 10 on Beatport both for the original release on DJ Hell’s Gigolo International Records and then again with the release of the remix package on DJ Pierre’s Afro Acid. DJ Mag described Kim Anh as a “musical polymath”… “Anh’s vocals are lucid and absorbing, and convey an assertion and power”.
Dubbed by Thump as “LA’s club queen”, Kim Anh has become an underground staple. She continues to make her mark on Los Angeles nightlife, fundraising for the LGBTQ+ community, maintaining solid residencies and producing events. She has played at some of the world’s most respected dance clubs, including Berlin’s Berghain Kantine, Wilde Renata’s ELSE, London’s Horse Meat Disco, New York City’s Output and live-streamed directly from Amsterdam’s Red Light Radio.
Bringing our community together through music.
IT STARTED WITH -
An endless passion for music,
for discovery, for community.
Kim Anh launched her first party in 2008, creating a space east of Hollywood where she could push the boundaries of mainstream nightlife and express creative diversity in her dj sets. It would be called Booby Trap!. From there Booby Trap! grew to reach NYC where it was supported and endorsed by culture creators from DFA Records, Opening Ceremony and Guest of a Guest who described Booby Trap! as “one of the best party vibes ever witnessed”. What started as a response to mainstream nightlife, quickly ignited a new era of queer nightlife for women where the undiscovered was most celebrated. Flaunt Magazine attributed the nightclub’s success to its “churning dance floor.”
Since then Kim Anh has been at the helm of many creative brands in nightlife that span from Los Angeles, New York City to London. Yowsah, hosted at Ace Hotel downtown Los Angeles every 1st and 3rd Saturday, has become what LA Weekly describes as “a 3-year-old rager”. Tendencies, her latest addition to late-late night has hosted some of the world’s top djs and producers, including Todd Edwards, Maya Jane Coles and Derrick Carter. Described as “a safe space,” Tendencies serves to create diversity in LA’s underground nightlife by supporting underrepresented communities in music.
Dubbed by Thump as “LA’s club queen”, Kim Anh has been making her mark on Los Angeles nightlife. In 2017, LA Weekly profiled Kim Anh in a piece entitled “Kim Anh Looks Beyond the ‘Bro-ification’ of Electronic Music and Nightlife” which noted Kim Anh’s ability to harness music and nightlife culture as a vehicle for activism. She has hosted voter registration drives, coordinated rallies and served as an official ambassador of LA Pride. Her efforts have helped to raise over $1 million in direct support of the LGBTQ community.
