Kellie Acreman has achieved a great deal as a DJ in a very short space of time. Having performed at gigs all over the UK and worldwide over the last 3 years she has consistently proved her abilities as a leading Female DJ destroying the decks and the competition wherever she goes. Her success was cemented in 2009 when she was declared the “World’s Sexiest DJ” (Nuts Magazine July 2009) with acclaim and support from one of the world’s leading DJ’s – the infamous Judge Jules (Radio 1).
The 28 year old model / DJ, originally from Torquay in Devon, decided to leave the country life behind in 2005 and follow her dream of becoming a successful glamour model in the bright city lights of London. She began her career in the now infamous ‘FHM High Street Honeys’ competition and achieved runner up position and a sexy double page spread in the magazine. This caught the eye of one of the top London Model agents who immediately saw Kellie’s potential and recognised her determination. From here the ‘FHM Honey’s Tour’ was conceived which was a new concept in UK clubs and venues. Kellie featured prominently in all the shows and the success of the tour lead to regular photoshoots in a wide variety of leading magazines and tabloids including the Daily Star, FHM, Maxim, Loaded, Front, Zoo and Nuts. This also led to major underwear campaigns for Victoria Silvestedst and Janet Reger lingerie lines. Kellie soon became recognised further afield and went on to do several shoots in exotic locations, including Miami, and as a result she has an ever growing fan base in the US, Germany, Australia and Spain – territories that continue to use Kellie’s pictures for publications.
Always on the go and with a sheer determination to succeed alongside a deep passion for music, Kellie taught herself to DJ, initially just for fun. This proved her natural talent and ability to master the technicalities involved and 3 years on Kellie’s success is evident. She has DJ’ed in a range of exclusive clubs all over the world including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Miami, Chicago, Spain, Chamonix, London, Egypt, Moscow, Croatia, India, China, Kavos, London and many, many more. She is also the DJ of choice for many celebrity parties – so far she’s played for Neyo, Jenna Jameson, T-Pain and Lindsay Lohan. This particular event attracted a great deal of attention from the UK and worldwide press as it was reported that Kellie and her regular DJ partner Lauren Pope were requested by Lindsay to spin for her to get back at on / off girlfriend at the time Samantha Ronson. As a result, on a DJ trip to Miami Kellie was relentlessly followed by the paparazzi – further proof of her international recognition and success.
This career move has now become Kellie’s main focus due to the amazing success she has achieved. So much so, she has taken the next step up by producing and providing vocals on her own tracks. She has worked alongside some prominent producers and has signed one of her productions to a very well known and well respected record label. Kellie is now working on more tracks for release later in the year.
Kellie’s next major step is to conquer the American market. Having already played at LIV (at the Fontainebleau) in Miami, and Y Bar and Enclave in Chicago there are further plans to hit LA and Vegas in 2011. She also has a tour of Australia in the pipeline as well as a tour of India fronting the Playboy Energy Drink Launch.
Kellie’s natural humour and vibrant personality has also caught the eye of a major TV production company who have invited her to do a screen test for one of their popular TV shows.
Kellie’s natural ability in front of the camera also led to TV and acting work. She showed her fiery side when she took part in a celebrity/model boxing tournament called ‘Catfight’. This involved 14 of the the UK’s top models battling it out in the boxing ring after an intense 6 months of hardcore training in the UK and Tenerife. Kellie’s boxing ability impressed one of her trainers so much she was asked to fight for his boxing club! Kellie declined this offer as she wanted to keep her model looks intact!
Kellie has also appeared in an ITV drama with Martin Clunes and T4’s ‘Vanity Lair’ screened early 2008. This was a prime time show involving Kellie and 10 other contestants living in a Big Brother style house competing for a £10,000 prize. Kellie had a great reaction from the public whilst appearing on the show with many people commenting on how well she came across and several prominent TV / film offers presented themselves….. Kellie accepted a part in major Brit-flick “The Big I Am” filmed in late 08, alongside Michael Marsden (Reservoir Dogs; Sin City; Kill Bill amongst many others), Vincent Regan (The Bill; Hustle; Wild at Heart) and Paul Kaye (Shaun of the Dead; It’s all gone Pete Tong; aka Dennis Pennis). The producer loved her so much he’s writing Kellie a part in his next film.
2011 looks set to be another very busy and very successful year for Ms Acreman. Having just landed the role as official DJ for worldwide mega-brand Hed Kandi, they are also lining her up to present their various TV / film projects. She has also been selected to take part in a major US TV show following her DJ career.
Kellie continues to travel all over the world for DJ bookings, in the first 2 months of 2011 she has already been to Dubai, Turkey and India with many more overseas gigs organised in the coming months, including such high profile events as the Singapore F1 official after party in September.
