Born april 23th in Mauritius , DJ ANGEL became a DJ because he 'liked to share music with other people. When I was younger, I'd listen to a radio show and mix show, he progressed to some student parties, private parties, then to three nights a week in a lot of club like guess Dj, learning and perfecting his craft. 'He gets a good experience in a Radio station in Mauritius.
He started DJing till he was 15 years old, In 2004. 'I really wanted to produce music and to make some good remixes that I could play in my sets, because it brings much more fulfilment to the process. I bought some samplers, some computer programs, and just started working on it.' He makes it sound easy

I like to hear a track and right away know what I want to do with it, what I can make different, and whether it'll work for me in my sets ' all my remixes have to be tried and tested.'
The future for DJ ANGEL promises yet further success, both as the solo artist he's become and the DJ we know him to be. 'Another album, more remixes, definitely,' he agrees, 'but it's hard to look too far into the future. Ev
