Karen Hemmes, aka DJ Hemmesphere, born in 1990 and raised in Canada (Edmonton, Alberta) discovered her love for music at a young age. Attending various electronic music festivals and experiencing the energy the DJs and producers emitted, her passion for the music lead her to want to start learning how to DJ herself. In Summer of 2006 she moved from Canada to a small town in Arizona (USA) with this burning desire.
Two years later at the age of 18, Hemmesphere began learning the art at a local bar in Show Low, AZ. Her passion and ear for music allowed her to pick up on her craft very quickly and she soon became the venue's spotlight resident DJ for two years. Becoming the biggest DJ in her town was an accomplishment, but not enough for her, as she always strives for greater success. DJ Hemmesphere decided it was time to take her talent to a larger market.
In 2011 she relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona where she began to make a name for herself in various bars and nightclubs throughout Tempe and Scottsdale at hot spots such as Smashboxx, Mint, Maya, and El Santo. The move to the bigger city paid off for her, as she earned the opportunity to play with world-renown artists such as Bingo Players, Felix Cartal, Kristina Sky, Luminox, Justin Jay, Clockwork, Chuckie, MAKJ, Flux Pavillion, DJ Scotty Boy, and DJ Spryte. She also performed at Wet Electric 2013, the Waterpark Pool Party Massive. Hemmesphere has rapidly become one of the leading ladies in the Arizona DJ and nightlife scene.
What's next for DJ Hemmesphere?
A lot of traveling and soon enough, some original tracks... She has already been playing out of state in Las Vegas (NV), Orange County (CA), and her home town of Edmonton, Canada, and is now spending her free time learning the art of production. "I've gotten really good response on my mashups and edits and it won't be long until I complete my first original track." Big things to come from this one. All in all, Hemmesphere proves that chicks rock decks.
