HIP HOP | R&B | 80s | 90s | | OLDSKOOL
Born in Dubai with Slovakian heritage, and with a global DJing style influenced by Jazzy Jeff and Diplo that crosses music genres, Megrov is the embodiment of the modern DJ.
Brought up on a staple of funk, R&B and pop from the 70s, 80s and 90s, Majid AKA Megrov found his musical heartbeat when he first heard hip hop: mainstream and underground jams sounded unlike anything he’d ever heard before.
Inspired, he started his journey into music and DJing. His teenage obsession with music and grooves turned into a nickname from his friends – the slang saying ‘ma groove’ – which then turned into an adapted DJ name, Megrov.
That hip hop sensibility has stayed with him, as his urban-heavy DJ sets are infused with pop classics and well-chosen curveballs, always keeping the listener on their toes, and – crucially – on the dancefloor.
Resident DJ at Caramel in Abu Dhabi and Dubai playing a mix of floor-friendly cuts, he’s since branched out to include a second residency at Koi as well as one-off shows at Mahiki and Alfuego.
When asked why he DJs, his answer is informatively simple: "If my music and mixes helps someone have a better day, then my mission was a success."
