From the clubs in Antwerp to the world stage, this is one dj you need to keep an eye on. A traveller by heart, Makasi explores different genres and innovates, mashing everything creatively, never ever falling into the trap of cliché mixes. He combines the odd and unlikely into well-crafted sounds, entertaining and amazing. In doing so, he catapults the crowd in a raving frenzy again and again.
Makasi has a long history at the turntable. As an eight year old he was already making mix tapes for friends using two walkmans (yes, that far back!). It wasn’t long before he started entrancing the dance crowds in Antwerp. Noxx, Versuz, Carre and Culture Club were a few of his regular spots. His reputation as an innovator spread like wildfire and soon he was setting clubs ablaze around the world. Jimmy Woo in Amsterdam, Queen Club in Paris, Makasi really put his stamp on the European scene. Then, he took on the rest of the world. Armani Club in Dubai, the Fashion Week parties in New York, Winter Music Conference in Miami and Tomorrowworld in Atlanta, he performed at some of the biggest clubs any dj would love to include in his bio. While spinning around the globe, he shared the stage with top artists such as Flo Rida, T Pain, Nicole Scherzinger, Wil.I.Am., 50 Cent, N.E.R.D., Ne-Yo, A Trak, Martin Solveig, Afrojack, R3hab, Sebastian Ingrosso. The list just goes on and on.
And it looks like it’s going to be another busy year. Always looking for new inspiration, Makasi is currently delving more into production. With the world at his feet, he’s bound to come out with some more exciting projects. So keep an eye out for him!
