Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Born and raised in Luxembourg, I'm a well-known 26-year-old DJ in the Luxembourgish and Cap-Verdean community. Being in contact with music since my younger age,I've been in love with music with it ever since. My parents used to play loud music in our appartement where we lived. I've been raised with music from my country, that is Kizomba and other styles. But I've been listening to everything since I can remember.

I've been DJing since my 20 years & I have rocked the biggest clubs out here in the capital of Luxembourg. Actually I am resident DJ at the M Club Luxembourg and Mpire Luxembourg and member of a crew called FreshFingaz Crew, which is a crew that has many DJ's accross Europe. But I've been also performing in other clubs in in the side of the french and german border and Portugal… been also performing on a lot of boat parties…. In 2015, my work got paid off by being awarded with the 3rd spot as Best Hip Hop of Luxembourg by publics vote.

2017 was a major year for me, because I've actually been showcasing with a lot of artists and warming up for artists like Maitre Gims, Rae Sremmurd, Machine Gun Kelly, Kay One, Product G&B, Leftside and a lot more… but also I was nominated and won 1st place as Best Hip Hop DJ in Luxembourg by public and jury's vote… Podcasts were also published every month with the actual hits of the month… this is my path since my debut !


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


I will not lie, in the beginning I was a Kizomba DJ. Kizomba is a slow rhytmic style of music where you dance with a partner, but after 1-2 years I've been telling myself that I don't to have that image of being a Kizomba DJ… that's where I've been extending my network and began to learn and getting tips from other Hip Hop DJ's in Luxembourg and that's where all really began to rise…

Since then, I've learned a lot… musically and professionally….

I will also thank the promoter of the very first big club where I could perform because since then it went all the way up.


What´s new right now?


Right now I'm learning how to produce songs… that's my next goal and hopefully I will release a track sooner or later…
I will go on with the podcasts, so you can stay up to date. I will continue to mix in clubs, so if you wanna stay up to date then go like my Facebook Page [YA NEEK] and my Instagram profile[@djyaneek]…
