Born to a Swiss father and Cuban mother, Matthias Kammerer, 24, better known as Emkay, was born in Houston, Texas and lived in Egypt and the Caribbean as a young child. However, it wasn’t until Emkay moved to Miami at the age of 9, that he became exposed to a world of musical influences and culture.
Armed with two turnables and a mixer, Emkay began DJ’ing at the age of just 15, and by 17 had landed his first residency at the legendary CoveLove party.
Within a year, Emkay became a regular in South Beach, on the Miami club scene, and at parties at his alma mater, the University of Miami. He has worked alongside major acts including A$AP Rocky, Steve Aoki, Carnage, DJ Mustard, Cedric Gervais and TroyBoi.
Flash forward to today you can now catch Emkay headlining clubs on the regular in Miami and all over the country. Emkay has rocked the decks of clubs such as LIV, STORY, E11EVEN, WALL, SPACE HYDE, IVY, MYNT, Basement and Mokai just to name a few.
