DJ LAZY K
Born in Mexico daughter of a airline pilot and singer , Karina Gutierrez better known as DJ Lazy K would find herself in Europe finishing school in Geneve Switzerland before winding up in New York and falling in love with Hip- Hop. A career spanning more than a decade collaborating with industry legends and heavy hitters like The Roots, Jay Z, Mobb Deep, Ghostface Killah, Cameron/ Dipset, Nelly, Lil Kim, Jada Kiss, DJ Funk Master Flex and DJ Kay Slay just to name a few. The Beautiful, brash and talented mix- master admits that being a DJ was not something that she had originally planned to be, and getting involved in music as a career was the furthest thing from her mind…..”It started out as a hobby, do to my love for graffiti and hip- hop”.
Lazy K’s career then unknown to her started when she began making mix tapes for her personal use and then copying a few for her friends. Before she knew it, people began requesting tapes from her on a regular basis, this growing demand made Lazy K begin to hone in on her skills. She began participating in the traditional path of DJ competitions, battles, throwing parties and moonlighting late nights at local clubs. Making the decision to jump in head first into a male-dominated field, DJ Lazy K held her own, winning the support and respect of her hard-bitten male peers with successfully battling against 28 male DJ’s in a head to head competition. This let Lazy K know that hip-hop was her true calling and ever since there’s been no looking back.
Formulating her own style by switching her records fast, crashing, blending and mixing so she could set herself apart from her male competition. Lazy K after winning numerous DMC competitions, began to set her sites on the mix-tape game, winning her the title of “Street Sweepers 1st Lady”, this further raising the bar for all female DJs. Her resume shows that “Lazy” although that being part of her stage name’s far from that. Causing commotions in clubs around the world from New York, Miami, Boston, South Africa, Sweden, Italy and Los Angles and France just to name a few with her scratching and styling skills, have gained her multiple awards, including the “Justo mix-tape Awards” for best female DJ (four times – including her latest in 2007), “Best Female DJ” from Atlantic Records, Big Beat Records for the Mix Tape awards, first place in the Universal Zulu Nation Battle-DJ/ MC Clash. Including; being featured on MTV Jams, MTV Beat Suite with Buck and Star, BET Rap City, BET’s 106 and Park.
