Kam’ is a freelance senior multimedia designer (print, web, video…), web admin, branding & strategy consultant, and media & community manager.
She has been an electronic music aficionados since her childhood, thanks to a rich and atypical musical environment provided by her family, but became a passionate lover of Hardcore music in 1993, after discovering the legendary Thunderdome compilations.
She knew about the rave scene for a long time when she started partying around 16, but her first real step in the scene was few years after when she integrated the big #IRC Freetekno community, very popular at this time and gathering thousands of freaky free-parties people. She then connected with musicians, DJs, producers, promoters and activists as passionate as her and at 19 she started to work with the french sound-system Elektroniktou.
Around end of 2002, she left Elektroniktou to become an active member of Teknomad, the famous hardcore sound-system from Paris, which was a better fit to her personal and musical identity.
At first she’s been in charge of the online communication -following the quick development of Internet at this time-, then she also started to take in charge the website and forum administration and, a thing leading to an other, she had to develop her graphic and web designer skills to master all of her growing responsibilities.
These experiences helped her to discover the music universe and jobs she would later enjoy as a professional.
Still active within Teknomad, her passion for hard music kept her curious and naturally led her to Holland, where she began partying in 2003. In the meantime she moved a bit from the free-party scene to more club based parties all over France, which led her to work with crews like Baggeera, Party Uniq and the famous Epileptik label, for graphic design or event promotion missions.
In 2008 she left Teknomad, but stayed involved in the scene as she had integrated the Hardcore Basic forum team, running one of the biggest and most active French Hardcore web community at this time.
In 2009 she joined the Trip & Teuf association (now also known as the Festimove party travels company) where she was a graphic designer, community manager and also a consultant, offering her experience and contacts for events, releases and online communication.
Through her years of intensive partying and various artistic collaborations, she managed to build a strong network of relationships all over the European scene.
In 2012 she began to work within the German scene for MinuPren and his duo with Stormtrooper called « The Brutal & Sadistic Show », and also for the Tbase Store owned by DJ B.A. from the Chemnitz’s Hakke Hardcore Heroes crew.
In 2014 she moved from France to Berlin where she worked from as a freelancer.
Kam’s first UK collaboration was beginning of 2015 for Hell is Hard Events, doing all the graphic design identity of their 4th anniversary party, and later for Joe ET from Oblivion Underground.
Her official on boarding with Oblivion Underground started in September 2015, after demonstrating a particular desire for attention to detail and impressive networking, social media, editorial and multimedia design skills, which is a truly valuable asset to the team.
Besides of other international collaborations, in just few months she managed to update the Oblivion Underground’s logo and graphic identity, upgraded, developed and improved Oblivion’s social media (including opening and running our YouTube channel and Instagram account), and she entirely built, customed, filled and updated our new website!
Now she’s also created all the label’s preview videos, makes all the newsletters, as well as all the designs for the Oblivion Underground Recordings releases (since the 002).
Since her integration into the Oblivion’s Events & Recordings journey, for which she dedicates most of her free time, she relocated in Belgium with Joe ET and she keeps working as a freelance multimedia designer with and for various promoters, event organisations and labels.
To name a few of her latest clients and show the wide range of her missions we can mention Al Twisted from Scotland – with whom she’s working with since 2016 – and his numerous brands and projects such as the Ibiza Goes Hard festival, the Twisted Artists booking agency, Twisted Events, the Motormouth Recordz, Darkside, InfeXious Hardstyle, Rave Muzik (in partnership with Stormtrooper) and Religion (in partnership with Joey Riot) labels and events companies.
