DJ KStarr has been in a love affair with hip hop from the first moment
she heard What More Can I Say by MC Milk B and his brother DJ Giz on
the streets of Bedstuy. Live, passionate and fearless, her prowess
over the turntables is history in birth.
From playing drums in the church choir, to making beats with her boy,
while others would hear music—KStarr would feel it: the melodies,
notes and souls of sound. A drummer, mixologist, creator and
producer, her mastery of beat and rhythm came from the early sounds of
Nina Simone, Anita Baker, Kurtis Blow, Africa Bambatta and Tribe
Called Quest. With two rusted out turntables and a bunch of two dollar
records, DJ KStarr began spinning real music for real people.
The rest was history.
