As one of the sexiest and skilled DJ’s in Asia, clubbers are guaranteed to have a blast of night whenever DJ Miss Chanel performs. With her deep passion for music and performing to crowds, we talk to the lovely Chanel and find out if she’s a very different person when she is not DJ-ing.
Hi Chanel, it’s a great pleasure to have you on SimplySxy. Can you share with us a little about yourself and where you’re from?
I’m 24 this year. I was raised in Johor Bahru and I moved to Kuala Lumpur since high school. I started spinning since I was 19. Being a DJ is my passion and I take it as a part time job. I am currently doing some own business which is why I don’t really have time to go for any full time DJ job.
The audience goes absolutely wild and crazy at every event of yours. How do you get ready for each party before whipping the crowd into a frenzy?
When I just started this job, I would prepare and arrange my set of songs in advance so that I wouldn’t go wrong. However, I realised I was making a big mistake. Different place / crowds have different tastes in music and arranging the set of songs in advance did not show good results in each place. From my experience, I realised that it is better to play the songs depending on the flow. This is how I assure the crowd will enjoy the night. After all, I love to share the music genre that I love and I enjoy sharing the new mash up/mix.
Do you have any upcoming events where we can look forward to seeing you?
I have been reducing my gigs as I just started my own startup. I am trying to balance my work life and passion. If I can be hands on my startup soon, I will be going to China for a DJ performance in November.
Which DJ’s do you take inspiration from?
Not to mention Armin and Dash Berlin, both are my favorite! DJ Inquisitive from Singapore is also one of my inspiration. He’s one with creativity and a talent in music.
What is playing in your song list right now?
Henry Fong & Futuristic Polar Bears – Velocity, Holl & Rush vs Tom & Jame – Buddha, Martin Solveig – +1 and many more.
Tell us 3 fun facts which your fans might not know?
You can’t imagine. 1) I love cooking. 2) I love reading books. 3) I started playing piano since I was 5 years old and love it.
What is the craziest thing you have ever done and not regret?
The craziest thing I’ve done… Last-minute decision to travel to the other part of the world with a friend? We booked our flight tickets to Monaco after we had few shots of drinks in the club and we flew with a massive hangover. That was crazy but I gotta say, the best trip ever!
Are you more of a lingerie or bikini girl?
I’m more of a bikini girl. I love outdoor activities!
Thank you again for the lovely interview Chanel. Can you tell us how you define “sexy”?
If she’s confident, she’s sexy.
