~* Bringing that badass Breakbeat Bass *~
DJ Decibel has been spinning the SL club scene for close to a decade. His breakbeat style always brings that distinct percussive rhythm mixed with shuffling hi-hats and beat-skipping kick drums.
Early ties in the Hip-Hop/B-Boy scene have led to todays influences such as Stanton Warriors, Krafty Kuts, DJ Hero, DJ Baby Anne and more.
His SL DJ career has covered everything from starting out in obscure small venues as a start up to high profile clubs, events and exclusive parties. 2015 should be a busy year as a headline DJ for the CKC Grid Tour 2015!

Kaylor has been hosting up party storms in SL for quite a while now. Anyone who has ever been to one of her parties knows that her outgoing personality and effervecience makes everyone feel like they are there to have a great time. Her synergy with the DJ makes any show upbeat and bangin'. She's doesn't beleive in the gesturbating because to her that's a last resort to some who can't find the atmosphere in the club and use it to their advantage.
When it comes to working a crowd, no one does it better!

~* M8 please! I only play with Kunts! *~
DJ Kunt was introduced to the DJ culture and found that he'd never been so inspired by anything in his life. He wasted no time in acquiring his first set of equipment, driven by the consuming need to chase what couple only be expressed through the music. He taught himself to mix by emulating DJ Hazard, quickly learning and finding his own unique style. Since then, he's played many venues both in RL and SL. He's owned several SL clubs, most recent being Club Temperance.
In addition to being a talented DJ, DJ Kunt is also a skilled mesh designer and owner of DeadPool Fashion

What can we say about our girl Danii?
Well a whole hell of a lot actually. Basically without her the CKC would be quite disfunctional. She keeps our heads in check and makes sure we have our shit together. Anytime we organize a tour stop she is there to make sure all the details are handled proffesionaly and all our egos are under control. She handles the CKC website. Does in depth interviews with people in the club scene, takes all the excellent photographs you see of the events and on top of that does all our teraforming and decorating for the events we put on ourselves. Basically there isnt an aspect of the CKC event tour she does not have creative hand in. We love our Danii girl and couldnt be nearly as awesome without her!!
