DJ K-Sly, is the first in her class; she is the first renowned Asian female DJ and radio host in the world. She has cemented a footprint in the entertainment industry, not only as a woman, personality, and DJ, but as a voice for the people.
With over 15 years of experience as a DJ and over 10 years as a television and radio host, K-Sly earned mass popularity with her signature voice and mixing style. Her turntables paved the way for who she is today.
She’s currently on BET’s “Master of the Mix” TV show, where she competes in a “Survivor” type DJ challenge, judged by Kid Capri, Vikter Duplaix, Amber Rose, and hosted by music producer, Just Blaze.
K-Sly is sponsored by the leader in sound, Monster (Cable & Headphones). Though she has rockstar hours, she is health conscious and has joined forces with Drinkwel nutrition. She is also a member of the Violator Allstar DJs.
Within two and a half years, K-Sly flew from the airwaves of Atlanta to Las Vegas to Los Angeles.
Vastly recognized in Los Angeles during her time at 100.3 The Beat (Radio One), K-Sly established herself as one of the top on-air personalities in the U.S., including having the station’s top-rated entertainment feature, The Sleazy Report.
Prior to her return to Los Angeles, K-Sly was Atlanta’s sweetheart on Hot 107.9 (Radio One) with co-host, at the time, Ludacris.
Being in the spotlight has given K-Sly the opportunity to interview some of the most influential entertainers of yesterday and today. The list includes Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, 50 Cent, the late Rick James, and actors, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett, Tommy Lee Jones, Mike Meyers, Peter Facinelli, to name a few.
On television, she was the co-host and DJ for the internationally-syndicated show, “Dance 360.” Following that, she became the announcer and DJ for Steve Harvey’s Big Time.
Those were just a few of her projects, since being featured in numerous programs on MTV and BET, including cameo appearances in music videos. She was a guest on Style Network’s Split Ends and featured on a documentary for Oprah’s Oxygen Channel, which included singer, Gladys Knight.
Gayle King presented her with a prestigious national Gracie Allen Award for Women in TV & Radio Broadcasting. She was featured in numerous print and web publications from Entertainment Weekly, XXL, Complex, AllHipHop, Ballerstatus and Audrey Magazine.
Born as Kathy Taylor, in Seoul, Korea to a Korean mother and Caucasian father in the Army, is the eldest of four children. She is a Los Angeles native with an Army child upbringing which brought her to attend Kansas State University where she graduated with a B.A. in Sociology. During that time, she pledged Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., a historical and nationally recognized socially conscious organization.
She is dedicated to her career, sharing it with a passion in promoting youth and community service. K-Sly believes that youth issues are neglected, and in helping the youth, they may gain a better understanding of their place in society to become productive citizens.
