How did you get into DJing?
DJ Haaraw resonated with the electronic music scene when he was about 15 and started to go clubbing with his friends in Romania. He always had the feeling that this is the music that will dominate the future and that made him try mixing the music himself and thus, become a DJ.When he was 17, he managed to do a mix of 5 hours with the most popular songs of 2013 and after doing a simple research on YouTube, SoundCloud and other platforms, he found a gap on the party mixes market and followed it. That idea was successful and brought him 26 million views overall on his channel and around 60k subscribers plus 616 years in estimated minutes watched (audience). During his 4 years of being based in the United Kingdom for his Music Marketing studies. Haaraw started to perform at several house parties , times when he discovered his love for the Minimal and Tech House spheres. He then participated at the Battle of DJs Tech House Sessions in Birmingham, being on the same level of performance with mixing for several times at PRYZM in Birmingham. He also performed in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and around Warwick and Coventry in various venues such as Kasbah and JJ’s which are the largest venues in Coventry.
