Locals: RE:ABEL

Who are you? How old are you?

I am Kurt (RE:Abel) and I am 19 years old, I play mostly progressive house but also I like to keep my set interesting by mixing in different styles of indie dance, melodic and organic house.

How many months/ years have you been Djing / producing?

I have been djing for the past 4 years, I have yet to start my production journey
but I am looking forward to get into it in the future.

Mention an artist that inspired you to become a DJ/producer?

The person that got me into the world of DJ’ing and music is a local artist who was also a personal friend of mine, Randle if it weren’t for him I would have never started DJ’ing.

Is there a local artist that you look up to and love to see play at events?

Personally I look up to DJ Ruby as the top artist in the progressive scene locally as well as internationally, his events are always something to look forward to as well. 

What skills do you think DJs need to be successful?

Being able to promote yourself and your style of music is a big part of becoming a successful DJ through social media, especially, and also connecting with your crowd and gaining followers through real life interactions, this is essential in my opinion.

How do you stay up to date with the latest music trends?

Mostly by following big artists in my genre, and also finding music with DJ pools such as beat port to keep up with latest music trends and upcoming producers.

What would you say is the most rewarding part of being a DJ?

The most rewarding part is always putting on that track that drives the crowd crazy and taking the vibe to the next level, the satisfaction and joy of that moment is unexplainable.
