A London made DJ who found his home in the Middle East, Kaysen has progressed from DJ to producer, business owner and even radio presenter thanks to his show on Dance FM Dubai.
A full-time DJ for the past 17 years, he made the move to Dubai in 2009, quickly announcing himself on the scene when his seamless routine at the Dubai Palme DJ competition secured him second place. Big gigs quickly followed including playing with Real Flava at Trilogy and Armani Prive, for Fashion TV and the opening of Plastik Beach Club. More recently, he was shortlisted for Dance FM’s Producer of the Year Awards with his remix of Sunshine Anderson’s 2003 hit ‘Heard it All Before’.
An international DJ, Kaysen has rocked dance floors across the world including Spain and Thailand, while also holding down a seven-year-long residency at ultra-cool bar Caramel in DIFC. Home is now the stunning Filini Garden on Yas Island where he plays every Friday, along with regular guest slots at Al Maya Island for parties like Corona Sunset Festival and Vegas Baby.
In the studio, working to a deep, tech-house template, Kaysen has had big-selling releases on global labels like Mixmania and BCT. Mainstream success came calling in 2018 when his Dear Deer Records release ‘Dynamo’ hit the Beatport Melodic Techno Top 100 thanks to support from Mark Knight, Richie Hawtin and Marco Carola, while the Paul Hamilton remix surged even higher, rubbing shoulders in the charts with Solomun and Tale Of Us.
Apart from his weekly residency, Kaysen is focused on writing his debut album, to be released later this year.
