In a few short years, Lauren ‘KITTENS’ Abedini has gone from djing in her bedroom, to touring with Kid Cudi, performing with Chief Keef, as well as djing for Usher, who is her current mentor. Rising through the ranks of an industry dominated by men, she’s learned how to play to trendy Hollywood crowds and underground music aficionados by balancing classic and current hip hop, trap, house, jersey club, future bass, and genreless dance music with some mainstream sounds sprinkled on top. Her taste, style, and technical ability has landed her on countless “top female DJ” lists as well as the highly respoected Source Magazines “25 Women to Watch” list for 2014.
Her foundation was built growing up as a classically trained dancer, listening to soul/funk/jazz cuts from her Mothers impeccable record collection, digging for any proper hip hop she could get her hands on, and during her teen years attending Low End Theory. All of these things combined provided her with a well rounded taste and understanding of good music.
She is currently a member of HW&W Records and ATHLETIXX (a crew consisting of DJ Hoodboi, Falcons, & Colta).
While continuing her tour schedule, KITTENS is working on her own production and remixes as well as dropping mixes and guest DJing on Shade45 (SirusXM).
