BIOGRAPHY

A DJ and producer for the past 18 years, Kaysen made the move to Dubai in 2006 where he made his mark in the Dubai Palme DJ competition before securing gigs at lounges, clubs, bars, and beach clubs across the UAE.

 

He has held down several long-standing residencies including his legendary sets at Caramel and DJ Bliss’s Real Flava Nights. Alongside that, he’s impressed as the resident DJ at the W Lounge, One&Only and the Filini Garden. He’s equally at home on the big stage, having played sets at 2,000-capacity clubs, Corona Sunset Festival and shows in Koh Samui, Thailand.

 

Kaysen is also an experienced corporate DJ, having played for Dior, Fashion TV, Bobbi Brown and Top Man. And he’s an experienced operations manager, having sourced and managed DJs for Caramel Group for close to a decade. 

Away from the decks, he’s a highly respected producer with dozens of releases for top labels including Dear Deer, Mixmania and BCT. And you might know Kaysen as one half of hotly-tipped duo Apollo Breach who host a weekly show every Friday on Beat FM.
