Everyone knows DJ Vika Kova who has been rocking the dance floors for some time now, but not everybody knows that she started out in 2001 as an MC/vocalist.

Nowadays DJ Vika Kova is bringing you the best of both worlds when she gets behind the decks, with a mic just within her reach so she can empower her set with live vocals anytime she feels like it.

Using her perfect sense of timing that she developed over the years of live MC-ing, she keeps her sets fresh and fun, stunning the crowd with her vocal skills when they least expect it.

Born in Russia, she grew up in Germany and went back to Russia just to settle down in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) a couple of years later. No matter where she went though, music always remained a constant factor in Vika Kova’s life. Always supported by her parents, she graduated cum laude from the Music and Ballet Academy, followed by the prestigious Music Conservatory of Moscow.

As MC, Vika expended many boundaries of this profession and was the voice of the main ID&T events, such as MysteryLand, Sensation White and Innercity. Also Carl Cox choose Vika Kova to be the voice of his Revolution radio shows and tours.

Today she’s playing the hottest parties at some of Holland’s finest clubs such as Paradiso, Panama, Escape and VIP Room. DJ Vika Kova spreads her message of love and peace and has great fun doing it! She is regularly touring in the Middle East, Eastern Europe and in Asia and is now a part of the innovative club concept called Supper & Sound @Het Bosch (Amsterdam, NL).
