From humble beginnings to an up and coming DJ, I am DJ Carlek


From a young age, I always knew I had a keen interest in dance music. My love for music started with 80s disco and eventually led me onto discovering 90s dance music. From there on in I knew I wanted to start my career in DJing, I bought my first set of DJ decks when I was just 16 years old, and having no idea how to DJ I spent many late nights on youtube learning the very basics of DJing.


I landed my first gig when I was 18, and it was from here I discovered my love for drum and bass and UK garage. After this I went onto DJing many private events, which eventually led me to land a gig at Ministry of Sound at the start of 2018. I played in the loft room which is the smallest room in the Ministry, but it was the first experience I had DJing in a top rated nightclub. 


After a few gigs, at Ministry I was eventually asked to DJ in room 103, this is the second largest room within Ministry and it was definitely a challenge, but I managed to pack out the dance floor and keep everyone dancing for the hour that I was on. 


Eventually the path which I took with ministry landed me a gig at the SW4 festival after party at electric Brixton in Summer 2018. I played in the small little room for an hour set, until when I finished, I was asked by one of Electric Brixton’s manager’s to come onto the main stage as one of the DJ’s was running late, this led me to playing a half an hour set after one of my most favourite DJ’s DJ EZ. 


After that set at the SW4 After Party I started to look into more private hire DJing.

Private Hire

For me personally, I think I truly found my passion for DJing at private parties and events. I offer a whole range of DJ services including: Wedding Hire, Birthday Party Hire, Christmas and New year’s  Party hire, Office Party Hire. I can also offer, sound and lighting hire if you just wanted to choose the music for yourself without the use of me being a DJ.


Because of my extensive knowledge and experience from 4+ years of DJing, I have played many DJ sets with many different genres of music. So whatever music you want to play at your private event I can cater for.
