The Spanish DJ/producer Manuel Garcia, better known as Uner, started performing at a very young age. From piano he went to dance music. In 2015 he told me the story of his debut at a DJ.
We met way back when in the real early ’10s. In 2015 I published Ro Hoogduin’s aka Roberto DaVinci’s intriguing coming-of-age-DJ story. “Nervousness didn’t exist at that age. Mistakes did.”
In 2017 we met for the first time and in 2018 Paride Saraceni even included me in a promotional video. Proud to be the one to publish the story of his first gig.
Oded Nir and Marcy Goes Wild met in 2014. In 2015 we spoke about his first gig and in 2016 we did a feature interview. When two curly heads meet… In this case there was immediate recognition.
In 2017 Dutch blackhouse-pioneer Natarcia Ommen told Marceline the story of her DJ-debut. “I was eighteen or nineteen when I started playing in clubs.”
In 2017 Marceline had the opportunity to British DJ/producer Mark Reeve about his first gig. “It has been a magical ride so far”
In 2016 UK DJ/producer Lee Haslam told Marceline the story of of his debut. “I had only been DJing for 4 weeks!”
In 2017 Marceline had a chat with the German DJ/producer duo Kaiserdisco. They both were teenagers when they played their first gig.
Marceline and Jan Liefhebber made their acquaintance during ADE 2015 in Dhoem Dhaam Warehouse. Sometimes there’s an instant familiarity.
In 2016 Marceline talked to Dutch DJ Kicken about his First Gig. “I remember very well that everyone was standing on the side of the room.”
Mutual acquaintances led to meeting each other. Just like every DJ, Jeane Isadou has her own unique story about that first time.
Uncertain has a vivid memory of his first gig in front of an international audience. “No-one other than UMEK organized the event.”
