"DJ SPK Mixes It Up And Pulls It All Together"

DJ SPK Mixes It Up And Pulls It All Together
Balancing Act
By Kia Moore
Not only is Apollonia Khan — known behind the decks as DJ SPK — a regular on the Charlotte and Atlanta music scenes, but she's also a promotions assistant and DJ at 92.7, a podcaster at StereoTypez Radio, and the 30-year-old mother of an eight-year-old child named Marley. CL sat down with this ubiquitous music maker around town to find out how she made her way to the turntables.

Creative Loafing: How did you choose your DJ name?

Apollonia Khan: SPK stands for Sour Patch Kid because of my personality. I am kind of an asshole, and it's really funny to me, but I am actually a really sweet person when you get to know me. More than one person has told me, while I was in my 20s, that I was a Sour Patch Kid. When I decided to become a DJ, Apollonia was already taken as a stage name. I decided to go with SPK because it embodies who I am.

"Best of Charlotte's Critic's Pick"

Best Set-List Storyteller - DJ SPK

In case you didn't know it, DJing is an art form. And Appollonia Khan, known as DJ SPK, has been putting in work on Charlotte stages and in nightclubs to make sure party-goers and concert attendees understand the intricacies of this art form. Lauded for her ability to share stories through her song selection and sequencing, SPK is about taking folks on sound journeys. Whether the story is as personal as two people falling in love, or a musical narrative to set the mood for a night at the club, SPK crafts the emotions for a room one track at a time. - Creative Loading
