As a DJ, I pride myself in bringing a spectrum of genres from different decades in unfixed BPMs, so that you won't grow tired of grooving to a fixed beat because I'm constantly refreshing the dancefloor.
I drew inspiration from DJ George Leong during the era of Superstar Sundays at Zirca + What I was unsatisfied with as a party goer + My best partying experience during my time in Bangkok, to make me who I am as a DJ today.
I know there are people who think I'm just a small timer when I first started out, which discouraged me and made me shelve my turntable for 3 years. But I would then kill DJ Kookie and come back with new found confidence as DJ Lokies. Even though there are still people looking down on me now — and granted, I still have a lot to learn — I ain't going anywhere. It took me awhile to get here, and this time, I will make my mark as the self-taught bedroom DJ with his humble console.
As a singer/musician/performer, the music always comes first. And that's what's up: I know what you like and I know I have taste. The music that I play is progressive, ahead of trends and will never fade into the background. It will come first, and it will have your attention, take over you and your body. That's my guarantee, and my guarantee is what sets me apart.
If you don't believe me, just ask the people who gave me the chance to be their DJ at @thejockshop's 2nd anniversary pool party last Sunday. xx
This post is especially dedicated to my best friend, @bhas.karan, who first believed in me as a DJ 5 years ago.
