I’ve always had a passion for music and radio. Since my early school days I’ve has a drive to share music with others. Whether it was end of term at school where I brought in a carrier bag of cassette tapes, a walkman and portable speakers into class or hiring out some sound gear at College and doing a few special nights for my fellow students on campus, I always wanted to get out there and do my thing. Later in life I’d been to many parties and weddings with old friends, new acquaintances, family members and it was always billed as “The best day ever”, but rarely lived up to the expectation.
99% of the time it wasn’t the people, the venue, the weather … it was the music. The same songs being played year after year, regardless of the occasion, the age range of the crowd, the type of people in attendance. It had got to the point where I could almost predict the playlist before I had even turned up.
I had come to question why there wasn’t a company that was able to cater to something a little different alongside the tried and tested classics ? For example, if I asked the DJ to drop some Mumford and Sons, would give me the thumbs up and play it next or look at me as though I were crazy as he had never heard of them …..How about mixing a Rudimental / Chasing Status type set in at the end of the night..?
I had to do something about this..DJNI.
I'm Chris by the way! I've been involved in the party scene for over fifteen years having successfully completed over 1000 parties ranging from Birthdays to weddings, kids parties and anniversaries. My exploits have taken me as far as Scotland, England and even New Foundland, Canada. I'm well known in media circles having been on air at one of Northern Ireland’s biggest Commercial Radio stations as well as currently providing music at outdoor roadshows with Cool FM and Downtown Radio.
Coming into the Autumn you'll find me playing occasionally at Belfast's Empire Music Hall and just up the road at Filthy McNasties!
