Dj Proceed  >  BIO

What's up?

I go by the name of Dj Proceed aka the man that gives you what you need !!!

I started with dj-ing cause i think it was ment to be !!! As a huge music lover, recordstores felt like my drug !

After building up a nice record collection i got in contact with HIP-HOP ! "Yo Mtv raps" was the first hip-hop show on television that educated me into the world of rap music ! This was something huge for rap music, and this way i started to get bigger in Europe!

Once the recordstores followed the movement, hip-hop was more accessible for us! This way dj s had the opportunity to drop their mixtapes ! Once i heard mixtapes from dj's such as : Grazzhoppa, Dj Hamadi (Transformerz), The Beat Junkies, i knew that i wanted to be a dj!

The technical aspect of Turntablizm just got me, i wanted to learn how to scratch, beat juggle and just produce my own mixtapes! After achieving my Technics mk2 in 1995, mixing was the only thing that i did and what brought me to the dj that I am today.

Since 1995 till today i've been evolving in my mixing and in my musical knowledge.

Music is a way to escape, to dream, to express, to think, to do what i want to do! So that s why i gave myself the name ''Dj proceed'' to give you what you need! This way i can bring music to people that they want to hear and add a twist of my own selected music.

Besides dj-ing i am also a promoter/organiser of parties in Belgium.

I have been organising parties since the year 2002, and always have been putting hip-hop music in the spotlights with showcases of national and international artists. I have always played in all kind of venues from big clubs to small bars what gave me a clear vision of party music and listening music, so once again... Proceed to give you what you need! Since 2014 i am the official dj/organiser of End of the weak Belgium. End of the weak is an international MC challenge where we try to find the best mc of the country! This mc ends up at the world finals to defend the Belgian flag !

I am also a dj that support bands or rap artists, so it is not strange to see me backing up a rapper or do some scratches with all kind of artists.

DJ LESSONS

As a dj i am trying to show my skills to other people and therefore i give dj classes. I give dj classes @ Popacademix but you can also contact me for private lessons!
