Biography

Language: English

DJ Vibes has been a full time professional DJ since January 1992.

Norwegian Born Kim Stensbøl aka DJ Vibes started to play keyboards at the age of 6.

His father, a musician in Norway at the time, was the reason for Kim’s musical interest at this early age, an interest that has grown stronger over the years.

Kim did during his early years also develop an interest for spinning records, Vinyl & CDs.

He started to hang with some of the more known local Disc Jockeys at the time, and as he turned 12 in 1989, he was given a chance of a lifetime; he became responsible for the music set up at a youth club in his neighborhood.

During his first 3 years he managed to build up a mobile disco system, together with a reputation for being a good and skillful youth.

He did so well at playing and performing, that soon Club Managers, Agents and other venues, booked him on almost equal terms with the older and more experienced DJs this earned him a number of residencies early on, in places like Venue in Sandefjord, Cruise in Tønsberg and Hit-House in Oslo.

Later on he became resident for some time in one of the most famous and biggest nightclubs in Norway at the time, “Snorre Companiet” in Oslo.

He was resident in their biggest arena “Vinterhagen” from 1997 until 2000. He has been resident in a number of well-known clubs during later years as well, like Børsen Stock Exchange and Cul de Sac/Central in Oslo Norway.

DJ Vibes has played more then 40 clubs, just in Oslo.

For the past 19 1/2 years, he has played in over 150 different clubs around Norway and has been resident at some 20 clubs during the years.

When he moved to Spain in 2004 he became resident at the London Underground Discoteca, in Fuengirola at Costa del Sol, 7 days a week from April to October.

He has also performed at Heaven’s gate, Coyote Dance and Savoy in Fuengirola, and held a residency at Chicago Lounge in Puerto Banus, Marbella.

DJ Vibes has been resident at Block8 in Beijing China during their grand opening for the summer of 2007, they wanted him to stay for at least 6 months, something he regretfully had to turn down due to overbooking.

Block8 is known as one of the most exclusive clubs in Beijing and has hosted some of the most famous stars from around the world.

Vibes was over 4 continents playing during the years 2007 and 2008!

In 2009 DJ Vibes played at Vudu and Formo on the island of Cebu in the Philippines. A place he will annually visit.

He started out 2010 quite nicely with his brand new weekly Radio Show “ALL ABOUT HOUSE” at Hong Kong FM, that is broadcasting all over the world, but with Asia as its primary target.

Today he gets great offers from clubs all around and is ready to tour the world.

DJ Vibes is well known for being a very good versatile All-round DJ.

Though his musical passion is mainly in funky, electro and progressive house music.

His basic playing style today is in everything from cheesy funky disco house, to a more progressive Latino, tribal & electro style of house as long as he feels the venue is the right place for it, otherwise he reads the people and try to make the best out of the show, after all, it is the fans that comes to see you that you are trying to entertain.

Today DJ Vibes has taken some serious steps forward, into the world of remixing and producing house music, to take his interest in one more direction.

He has the confidence, that sooner or later something is going to catch, the industry today is constantly looking for new sounds, and why not try something on his own, not just for the fame and fortune but also for the love of music.

DJ Vibes has been working for several booking agencies in his native country Norway, but is now seriously looking for the proper international booking management to represent him for the near future!
