There’s no greater feeling than touching peoples lives with your music everyday, and that’s what RJ/DJ Asef does on his daily routine. He’s not your typical radio host who would eat your brain out, whereas Asef is a house Dj in one of the most elite Desi night in Dubai, and he’s responsible for bringing up many local Dj’s into the mainstream. Dubaibliss.com caught up with the man himself for a short interview to know a little more about him and where you can catch him spinning next.
Asef what inspired you to become a DJ?
I was always a music lover even as a child. I used to spend all my pocket money on buying cassettes and CDs so I grew up exploring different genres of music from Rock to Pop and then EDM but listening to the legends like Armin Van Buuren, Roger Sanchez and Deep Dish actually inspired me. Also I believe that theres no greater feeling than touching peoples lives with your music everyday.
