In the mid 80’s, Kam was introduced to some of the most influential Hip-Hop figures in the scene, like Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Rodney O and Joe Cooley who visited his parents fast food restaurant “FATBURGER” regularly, after recording sessions at the local studio. With such a wealth of talent around him, it was no surprise Kam spent most of his days learning about different styles of music and mixing techniques that were developing at the time. In the early 90’s, Kam had started spinning at local house parties, underground warehouse raves and clubs in the San Fernando Valley and Downtown LA. In 1994 (at the age of 18) Kam was given the title "DJ KAM" was a rotating resident at one of the hottest Hollywood nightclubs at the time called “ARENA”, along side resident "DJ IRENE".
