Kimball Collins
Kimball Collins
Kimball is a passionate artist committed to spreading positive vibes. He generates warm feelings and creates soulful connections through blissful musical excursions into sound. His influence continues to pioneer the evolution of modern electronic dance music. Well known for always pushing the edge, he is keeping his loyal listeners inspired, lifted and motivated.

After breaking barriers in the punk and alternative music scene, Kimball began bridging his discoveries of the "new sounds of the underground" into his sets. Orlando's Beacham Theatre welcomed Kimball to their majestic, theme-changing, weekend club in late 80s. He was given free reign to experiment with unheard of styles helping to launch several movements in the history of house music. White labels of acid house, rave, piano house, electro, funky hip hop, breakbeat, bass groove, ethereal ambient to deep techno excursions helping form the now famous "Orlando Sound". The legendary ‘AAHZ’ themed run also allowed him to play marathon late night sets well into the next morning keeping the packed dance-floor still cheering for "one more song". Having a music background, Kimball has a unique natural ability of creating breathtaking and magical moments rhythmically scratching, phasing and mixing tracks together. Without imitation, the "progressive house" era was mirroring what was happening in the Euro club scenes. This led to Kimball inviting the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Joe T. Vannelli, performer Cosmic Baby, vocalist Sam Mollison, singer Tony DiBart, the band Taste Xperience for their inaugural US appearances to share the AAHZ stage generating a frenzy of feels and mythical events. Because of these loyal followers (the AAHZ Army) and the positive impact it has made, Kimball produces annual throwback themed events featuring these 80s/90s classics keeping the vibe and legacy alive.

Kimball has held several global residencies and still plays big room/underground gigs amassing audiences on dance-floors, at festivals like Further Future for Robot Heart and with his online followers coveting his specialised mixes and tracks. His discography continues to grow with current productions (along with studio-mate Rudiment) including work for Talavera Records, Magician on Duty, Making You Dance and Where the Heart Is. Stay tuned for more tours, tracks and positive vibes with Kimball's signature style coming your way soon.
