and many others.
What's the cost?
There are many things that should be considered when looking at the cost of hiring a professional DJ. Some of the most important of these are:
- Working hours
- Type of event
- Transportation (airline tickets, etc.)
- Hotel and other accommodations.
For this reason, a fixed price for the service cannot be determined. Please contact me using the contacts below and we can discuss what your specific needs are and how I can best and most cost effectively assist you. Please allow at least 5 days prior to the event.
Is there a difference between DJ setup and sound system?
In general, the DJ setup is the equipment DJ uses in its booth: Playback devices: CDJ’s, turntables, mixers, controllers, effects units, drum machines, synthesizers, microphones, etc.
The sound systems include the amplifiers, the processors that pass the audio signal to the amplifiers, the speakers, bass speakers and many others.
Do you have your own DJ setup?
When hired, I have everything I need to do my job in the DJ booth. Аs a digital DJ, on all venues I work with my own:
- Macbook Pro;
- DJ Console;
- Few MIDI controllers;
- Wi-fI Microphone (if need);
- Cables, stands, cases and etc…
Do you have your own sound and lighting equipment?
Most of the places I’ve had the pleasure of working are equipped with their own sound and lighting systems.
When needed and requested by clients, I use the services of companies that deal with professional stage lighting, sound, special effects and pyrotechnics.
Do you use a microphone when you work?
I avoid using a microphone while I work.
In my 15+ year professional career as a DJ (disk jockey), I have learned that using a microphone prevents me from focusing on my set and mix.
Yes, there are DJs who use a microphone, but I am not one of them. If the microphone is a must, I use the professional services of experienced MCs. I can provide contacts upon request.
Do you play any song requests?
It depends on the requests. If a request is in line with the music style I know and work with and if I feel it will cheer the audience then why not? However, I avoid repeating tracks in my sets.
It is also important to know that requests to download and play something, play a track from youtube, a phone, a USB, etc. will be ignored. Needless to say, such requests are very disrespectful and absurd.
Do you accept last-minute work proposals?
No. Regardless of the financial motivation I do not accept work proposals that do not allow time for proper planning and preparation.
Are you vaccinated against Covid19?
Yes, I am! I am vaccinated with Jansen vaccine and Pfizer booster. I can present the necessary documents and certificates on request.
Have you completed the necessary courses and trainings to work on a cruise ship or yacht?
Yes. I have the following certificates:
- Basic safety training;
- Safety training for personal providing direct services to passengers in passenger spaces;
- Training in passenger ship crowd management;
- Trining in passenger and cargo safety and hull integrity;
- Training for seafarers with designated security duties;
- Crisis management and human behaviour training.
All of them are issued in Bulgaria, EU.
I can present the necessary documents and certificates on request.
