BIG SKY


A year ago FunMasters hosted one of the biggest social event in Soweto at the Nike Stadium and they recently had another one in June 2015, at Zone6 ( The Venue). It’s always an ultimate jump off, but this is not only because of the vibe, the people or the awesome venues these guys choose. It’s the decks masters, one such wizard behind the one’s and two’s is this fellow here. Big Sky, who drops one of the most entertaining and crowd grabbing sets ever and I had the pleasure of experiencing him at work.

Zweli: Where are you from and do they love your music where you from?
BigSky: Dobsonville, Soweto. Yes they do, I always get mad support there.

Zweli: When did you start Djing?
BigSky: 2003/4

Zweli: So when did you decide that this was no longer a hobby and that
you would make it your career?

Zweli: So what do you think sets you apart from the rest? I mean,
what’s the difference between a DJ and you?
BigSky: I can play anything I feel will be relevant for a situation from Deep soulful house, Kwaito, RnB, MidTempo etc. And apparently I’m not a bad dancer either.

Zweli: What is it like when you look out at the crowd ?
BigSky: It’s something out of this world when people are responding to what I’m doing. Super epic.

Zweli: Where do you get inspiration from?
BigSky: From a number of sources. My family, industry legends, Djs who are on point and the people who support me.

Zweli: Do you get nervous before you go on stage?
BigSky: Yeah still get butterflies in the belly before sets, but after the first mix I’m home.

Zweli: What is the biggest crowd that you have ever played for?
BigSky: 10 000 people in Klerksdorp

Zweli: How has your life changed since you are well know figure in S.A’s
House scene?
BigSky: Not that much, I’d like to believe I’m still the same guy I was before I started.

Zweli: Are there plenty of women who throw themselves at you?
BigSky: No, I don’t have the looks

Zweli: How do you think music you play has changed over the years?
BigSky: Music like anything in life evolves all the time. What I’m mostly happy about is that we are playing more local music now that when I started.
