Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change in the run up to the event just let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

N/A

How much time do you need to set up?

It depends on the package booked. Generally, where PA and lighting is included, it can take 60-90mins. For DJ-only bookings, it normally takes around 15mins, but I always aim to arrive at least 1 hour before set time for sound check and to ensure everything is ready for me to deliver a performance of the best of my ability.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

You are very welcome to send through key song requests. Given my experience, I am able to cater to a variety of crowds and situations. Quite often, the songs you may request or expect are those which I will play anyway. However, I am happy to see your playlist ideas in advance.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. There are different packages available: DJ-only, wedding packages, corporate packages, etc. Some venues can supply or enforce you to use their in-house equipment. It's worth checking this before deciding whether to request a DJ-only or package quote from me.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If it's a genre of music you feel is outside my remit and needs to be learnt then I would be happy to do so. I thoroughly enjoy learning new styles of music and always keen to push my knowledge.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

- Always smile - Cater to the crowd - Friendly - Accept requests - Respectful - the event is about the client and their guests (i.e. wedding couple, company, charity, etc) not the DJ :)

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Many of the top luxury venues in London and SE England. This includes hotels, banqueting suites, prestigious members clubs, event spaces, nightclubs, bars, etc. For example: The Dorchester, Hilton, Grosvenor House, Mahiki, The Box, Tramp.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

BOB SINCLAR CALVIN HARRIS DIPLO DJ FUDGE EARTH WIND & FIRE FRANKY RIZARDO GREGOR SALTO JAMES BROWN JAY-Z JUDE & FRANK JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE LAIDBACK LUKE LIKA MORGAN MARK RONSON MASTERS AT WORK MICHAEL JACKSON NILE RODGERS PHARRELL WILLIAMS PRINCE PURPLE DISCO MACHINE QUEEN RHYTHM STAIRCASE ROGER SANCHEZ SERGIO MENDES VIDYA VOX

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

THE O2 LONDON PRE-CONCERT & AFTER-PARTIES – BEYONCE, JAY Z, NE-YO, NICKI MINAJ, J-LO, AVICII

Vik was incredible - he had the whole wedding party dancing late into the night. Besides that, he was extremely professional, communicative and accommodating. If you’re looking for a DJ for your wedding, I can’t recommend anyone more than Vik.

A fantastic night: Vik was great at reading the crowd, appealing to all age groups and keeping us all on the dance floor. Really friendly, professional and very approachable. Everyone had a fantastic night. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and will definitely ask Vik to DJ again.

Hey Vik! Hope all is well with you - thank you again so much for an epic wedding reception. So many of our guests say how incredible the music it was and how it felt like an Indian ibiza haha. You really smashed it and especially the final hour of all of our favourite house tracks! It was so special and made the night so memorable - you really understood our music taste and we have the BEST night. A special thanks to Harj for helping coordinating our entrance & speeches and being a great support throughout the night. We are so glad you were our DJ for our wedding.
