DJ Zimmo has been a professional DJ for over 15 years, born in Birmingham, England. It was back in 89 when he first became involved in the house scene, listening to his very first mixtape and from that moment on he knew where his passion lay. After acquiring his first set of turntables aged 18, it wasn’t long before he mastered the skill of beat matching, paving the way to play his first gig. This progressed to him having successful residencies at Sundissential, The Institute & Marco Polo Bar in his home town. Zimmo has also performed at many venues across the UK & overseas with further bookings already secured for 2012.
Given the meteorical rise of the Internet, logical progression enabled him to move forward into creating his very own podcast, so he could reach a much wider, global audience. He’s also now become one of the top 100 house music podcasters in the world. His “Funky Vocal House Sessions” on itunes has now achieved over half a million downloads since its launch in 2009 and currently has 100,000+ subscribers.
The amalgamating factor throughout his career has been his dedicated passion for the music. Ultimately leading him to now start producing his very own funky & disco house tracks. 2012 is already shaping up to be a very busy year for Zimmo in the studio with many projects and releases forthcoming. Zimmo has prided himself, always, on his unrequited love of the original disco sound, which emanates thoughout his selection.
