Karim Barkouki, also known as DJ Stylez, is a Dubai native with a deep-rooted passion for music that began in the late 90s when tapes and vinyl were more prevalent than CDs. His journey into DJ-ing started at house parties, school graduations, and proms, carrying a case of tapes that resembled his school lunchbox.

In 2005, Karim achieved 1st place at the “Battle of the DJ’s” competition at the American University of Sharjah, winning his first professional DJ set. This marked the beginning of a diverse career, including sporting events for brands like AND 1, Red Bull, Nike, and Adidas, as well as corporate events for companies such as Leo Burnett, Proctor and Gamble, AUDI, Mall of the Emirates, and Siemens. Stylez’s versatility resonated with a wide audience, leading to performances at weddings, graduations, and concerts.

Between 2008 and 2012, DJ Stylez made a mark in the club scene, playing at top venues in the Emirates such as Boudoir, Zinc, Club 400, C bar, Platinum, People by Crystal, and 360. He was recognized by Infusion magazine as one of the top 10 DJs in the region and played at Sanctuary Club in Atlantis Hotel.

Karim’s journey extended to fashion events, government-related gigs, and sharing the stage with international acts like Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, French Montana, and Akon. He also warmed up for famous Arabic singers and hosted events like the FIFA Beach World Cup soccer event.

In addition to his charitable contributions, DJ Stylez DJ-ed for Tiffany & Co’s anniversary, participated in the PRESIDENT’s CUP in Al Ain, and headlined shows for EXPO2020. His extensive experience includes DJ-ing for the launch of the new Al Habtoor Bentley showroom and hosting the official closing party for the band COLDPLAY.

For over 15 years, Karim has collaborated with top wedding and event planners in the Emirates, handling elite weddings with multinational clients, VIPs, celebrities, and destination celebrations in Europe and the Middle East, working closely with Carousel Events, Event Chic, The Purple Chair, Ahlam Events, Palmera Events, My Lovely Wedding, Jam Events, Muse Events, LMB Events, and The Big Night.
