We're continuing the countdown to next Saturday's competition!
We talk to AYEKAY.
ADM: So what got you started in DJing?
AK: To be honest I can't really remember. It kind of just happened. I've always loved music and since primary school I was often seen with headphones wherever I go. I think someone said I look like a DJ and that just stuck. I started DJing at my friends' parties in secondary school and it just went on from there. Somewhere along the line I discovered hip hop culture and fell in love with it, so I started learning turntablism (which is part of the 4 elements of HH)
ADM: What sets you aside from the other contestants?
AK: Having a background as a dancer and drummer, the way music connects with me is different from the rest. For me it's on a spiritual level. There is so much more to music, which I've come to discover through my explorations into other forms of art. I feel that I can apply to my DJ routines and sets.
ADM: What can we look forward to seeing from you?
AK: Fun and maybe some dancing from me ;)
ADM: Any last things you'd like to say?
AK: Hip hop hooray!
