Talking about my DJ Career, it all started as a hobby in 2007. After I completed my college studies, I went to Ktm and stayed there for a while and that’s when I got interested in DJ-ing. In the beginning, DJ Punit(resident DJ of Club Platinum,Ktm) helped me with some basic tips. Later, I took basic DJ course from Boom International with DJ Raju(one of the well known DJs of Nepal). And here I am today, working as a resident DJ at Club Paradiso, Pkr. There are two things I want to do during my career. First, I want to contribute more or less in the music field. Next, I am currently taking a course in Paragliding and after finishing this course, I want to go professionally into it too.
I’m glad that I have full backing of my parents. Even if they don’t know much about clubs, DJ or even paragliding, the support is there and I want to thank them with all my heart.
About my daily routine, I wake up at 9 and finish everything within an hour. Then, I head off to paragliding class i.e. 10-4. During my free time, I use internet and keep up to date in everything. 7-11 is my working hours at Club Paradiso. During off days, I hangout with my friends around Lakeside. And yes, the most important work in every person’s life, I sleep at around 12.
There are different kinds of DJ. As for myself, I am a Club DJ. In my opinion, every DJ should play the music with respect to the crowd, according to the feel and environment in the Club. A DJ should be able to share his/her musical vibe to the crowd. My genres are commercial/non-commercial house and RnB remix. My gears are CDJ 200 – DJM 600.
There are a few messages or should I say, suggestions that I would like to convey to people out there. First, know about music and then only, find your taste of music. Second, using Virtual DJ is not a bad thing at all. In fact, its an useful software in the learning process. But, it is foolish to call yourself a DJ by using Virtual DJ.
