We get up close and personal with one of the Societe owners, and their new resident DJ
One thing you might not know about me is... I’m learning to skydive at the moment.
My worst ever job was… Working in an alloy factory for a day. It was so bad I didn’t go back.
DJing is much like… Being a chef. You have to carefully select all the ingredients and add them individuality at just the right time. If you use the wrong ingredient you will spoil the whole dish and you have to start again.
Dubai’s clubbing scene is… Eclectic. It has everything you could ever want. People just need to stop posing so much and enjoy the music.
I’m really proud of… Creating the concept of Societe and being one of the owners.
What track could you drop in every set? House of Pain ‘ Jump around’, everyone goes crazy for it or ‘ Summer of 69’ by Bryan Adams - as soon as the intro starts everyone starts playing air guitar.
I can’t live without… My dog Murphy…. He is the best thing in my life.
My biggest DJ achievement to date is… I only DJ for Societe so it would be getting a round of applause at 3am when the music stops and the crowd is chanting for one more song. That’s a very cool feeling that people actually care about the music
What is your guiltiest pleasure? Manchester United. I have followed them since I was a boy. I even moved to Manchester to support them for several years. Don’t try and contact me during a game…
If you could DJ in any decade which would it be… The 00s, just before everything went to computers and CDs were the method of mixing. There were so many big tunes…
If I could go back-to-back with any other DJ it would be… DJ Spoony from the Dream team. Only because he used to be a warm up DJ in one of the first clubs I managed and I still remember making him play YMCA and him hating me for it.
I’m not a politician but… If I was I don’t think I would last too long when they started digging the dirt on me…
