The art of DJing is not a new concept. DJs have been bringing lives to major concerts and festivals for a long time. Some people perceive that being a DJ does not require significant music skills, but this conception is way far from the truth. A modern-day DJ needs to work with different kinds of professional software and equipment. A talented DJ needs a sense of music and effective technical skills to rock the concert and make the people dance to their own taste in music. Most DJs love their job and enjoy doing it every other night. However, the fun does not come that easy; they need to give out of the practice efforts to gauge the attention of the music lovers and skyrocket in the industry. In most cases, DJs start their music-producing career in local clubs and concerts; they keep doing extra effort but go unnoticed in the industry. Only a few talented DJs climb the ladder of success by giving extraordinary efforts. One such professional DJ is Angelo De Feo, who started his music recording and producing journey from the local clubs but never compromised on smaller achievements. He kept polishing his DJing skills and got an opportunity to show his art in major concerts and big music festivals.

Success does not come on a silver plate. One needs to work very hard to reach the required destination. Various problems become a hurdle in the journey, but one needs to stay true to the path and keep giving the effort until expected results. Like other professions, DJing requires strong commitment and consistency to get to the next level of success. A DJ’s life might seem rocking with lots of fun. However, the reality differs from the audience’s conceptions. There are a lot of issues that a DJ suffers from. Initially, a newbie gets very low money for playing music at the full-night party. It is not money that inspires music lovers to become DJs. Instead, it is their passion and love for the job that they do it committedly.

A DJ’s lifestyle is different from that of normal people; they do not have a proper time to nap. They rock the stage and make people dance to their music and that too regularly. In addition, the DJs do not get immediate recognition like musicians or singers. It takes much time and patience to enjoy a fan following and get huge recognition. The DJ needs to perform at such shows, but that’s how they make friends and develop a dominating name in the industry. Despite hurdles and struggles, DEFEO never stopped at any point and kept climbing the ladder of success with his exceptional performance and art of music.

Angelo De Feo was born on 22 July 1991 in Switzerland. He is a DJ and record producer well known for his stage name, DEFEO. DEFEO started his DJing journey in 2009 when he played music in several local clubs and bars in Switzerland. In 2010, his talent was spotted by his General Manager, Marc Heymoz. DEFEO had bigger goals. He knew his talent was not for the small platforms. DEFEO wanted to perform on bigger stages. Intending to grow professionally, DEFEO joined Aprod Agency (CH) in 2012 for two years. Being part of the agency, DEFEO got opportunities to play music at the biggest festival in Switzerland. He also performed at the Winter Music Conference in Miami.

DEFEO had been working with his general manager for years. However, the time came when they both decided to call their partnership off in 2014. After the separation, DEFEO worked as a free agent DJ, but the separation did not remain forever. His general manager, March Heymoz, started a new agency in 2015, known as AFFINITY, and asked DEFEO to join. The duo started working together as a new team.

DEFEO has gained impressive recognition in DJing. Currently, he performs in various clubs in Switzerland, including MAD Club – ranked in the annual list of top 100 clubs. Besides Switzerland, DEFEO also performs in different Europe counties, such as Spain, France, and the Czech Republic. He also performs in the United States and Macedonia. DEFEO has been performing in these countries for years.

Besides touring as DJ, DEFEO has also produced and released his singles on some popular labels like Sosumi Records and Kryteria Records (Spinnin’ Records) – both the labels are run by Kryder. DEFEO also released his music on Generation HEX, Sirup Music, and Juicy Traxx. 

DEFEO is skyrocketing his name in the DJing profession. His journey started in local bars and clubs, and today he performs in various countries. DEFEO’s journey is an inspiration for newcomers.

From television to the internet platform, Jonathan switched his journey in digital media with Bigtime Daily. He served as a journalist for popular news channels and currently contributes his experience for Bigtime Daily by writing about the tech domain.

on

DKIRK KV is a name that doesn’t need an introduction among hip-hop music lovers anymore. The rapper has made a mark in the music industry in a very short time thanks to his phenomenal music-producing skills. 

DKIRK KV’s exceptional musical talent comes from his childhood. The US rapper’s father was a DJ who played all around the world. Hence, the music star had early access to music and its different sounds. The artist says, “My ears were engulfed by the sounds of Nelly, LL Cool, Michael Jackson, and Seal Paul.” 

The half Jamaican and half American singer hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He says that music officially came into his life in 2013. Kirk shares that he developed a love for the flows and rhythms of music, and set out to make his own mark in the music world. He is aware that his music has a great following already amongst youngsters and new rappers who see him as a solid role model. Even his contemporaries look at him with respect and admiration.

The rapping star describes his genre as rap and his style of music as dance hall. DKIRK KV himself has a list of people he wants to collaborate with. He says that those on the top of his list are Chris Brown, Tyga, Kid Ink, Big Sean and Tory Lanez. Even though each one of these artists have different vibes and music styles, D Kirk KV wants to get their guidance and be able to experience their process of creating music from up close. In a sense, all these artists are the rapper’s ideal musicians!

However, Kirk’s biggest inspiration is the Notorious B.I.G. The hip-hop star says that he can relate to BIGGIE in a lot of ways; he loves how much BIGGIE’s music is about culture and never giving up in life. He says that he’s learnt that one must constantly keep pushing themselves if they want to grow as an artist and make their name in the music industry.

One thing that he loves about music is that it is so personal and individualistic. One can pour their personality into their music and bring forward different perspectives through their sound. Nobody is restricted to only one sound, which makes the process of producing music and songs much more enjoyable. 

Sharing his goals for 2023, the rapper says that he wants to accomplish all his dreams and become a top choice musician. He says that it would be a dream cum true if he were on the BET Cypher list, which is a great recognition for a hip-hop artist! When asked what would he be doing if he were not a musician today, DKIRK KV says that he probably would have been a professional fitness trainer if he were not giving his all to music.  

At the moment, Kirk is working hard at building his influence on social media by making reels, having photoshoots, and engaging with his followers. However, it’s not only music that keeps this musician busy. Outside of music, DKIRK KV has a clothing line called D&J clothing. He is currently working on expanding the clothing line with his business partner. He plans to expand his clothing line to multiple locations. 

D Kirk sees himself having released multiple albums, gone on various music tours; and having dropped collaborations with his favourite artists in the next five to ten years. He believes in “being a smart business man with constant success”. When asked how he would adjust to being away from home while touring for an extended period, the musician says that while it might be difficult initially since he loves following a routine, he thinks he would adjust quickly too. He says that he has waited for this success for a long time and worked really hard at it, so he is looking forward to enjoying it.

Talking about his brand new song named Tempted Ft xBvalentine, Kirk says, “This song has a very different type of sound that puts you in the mood to dance all night”. The hip-hop and R&B singer is available on all social media channels as D Kirk (KV).
