With a top shelf DJ roster which ranges from Benji Candelario to Terry Hunter, Caroline Dunkley provides DJ and Artist Management services for the UK, Europe and beyond. This is her story:
WHAT WORDS DO YOU HAVE FOR UPCOMING DJ’S AND ARTISTS LOOKING FOR REPRESENTATION?
Have your own unique style, play what you love and make sure the crowd love what you play and try and get a hit record to make it easier for me to get you gigs!!
WHATS THE WORST THING?
A promoter not wanting to pay the dj his money at the end of the night.
WHATS THE MOST COMMON MISTAKE MADE IN HOUSE MUSIC?
Too loud, too hard and too fast. Some DJs think that they can make up for bad music by just playing louder, harder and faster. Also if a dj is booked to play a warm up set, play a warm up set.
WHAT CLUBS DID YOU FREQUENT WHEN YOU FIRST JOINED THE SCENE?
In Sydney I used to go to the Rat, Black and Mardi Gra parties at the Horden Pavillion and clubs like Spaigos and The Cauldron. When I came back to London I went to clubs/parties including Naked Lunch, Milk Bar, Boys Own, Full Circle, Love Ranch, Legends, and many more, we used to be out all weekend.
WHAT IMPORTANT TRENDS DO YOU SEE IN OUR INDUSTRY?
House music is moving to smaller clubs.
