DJ Brendan Wickstrom

 

Brendan is a very versatile DJ, often referred to as a chameleon, as he has the ability to swing from genre to genre and era to era effortlessly. He’s uncanny ability to read a crowd certainly gives him a distinct edge. This is a product born out of playing music for 20 years in an array of environments; from Nightclubs to Groove Bars, Lounges to Corporate Events and Weddings.

 

He is capable of handling lengthy sets in the following music genres: Commercial/Urban Dance, Afro House, Afro-soul, Deep House, Soulful House, RnB, Hip Hop, Reggaeton, Latin Funk and Funky House.

In his busy 20 years behind the decks, Brendan has not only learned how to read a crowd like a book but has developed a very clear understanding of how different types of music create strong perceptions of a club, brand or event and goes to great lengths to ensure the style and tempo of music he plays will create the desired public perception of the organisation he is performing for.

 

Brendan has also opened for a number of International & Local Artists including Seal, Kings of Chaos, Basement Jaxx, Dave Seaman, Warp Brothers, Aquagen, Jonathan Butler, Goldfish, Goodluck, Prime Circle, The Rasta Rebels, Coda, Johnny Clegg, to name but a few!

 

Over the years he has played many “Live” sets on top Radio Stations including 5FM, Good Hope FM, Heart FM, Mutha FM & P4.

 

Some of his career highlights include:

 

  • Playing at the FIFA World Cup 2010 Final Draw
