#MISSGUIDEDDISCOVERED: DJ NES| April 6, 2016

Tell us about yourself?
Hi I’m Nes!! I’m a DJ from Sydney and I’ve been playing in clubs for the last 6 years. I love playing Hip Hop, RnB, Dancehall, Disco and Tech House. I throw parties. I like to dance.
What’s the best gig you have played?
My best gigs are the ones that my friends throw called One Day Sundays and Halfway Crooks. The people who come down really care about the music we are playing and that’s apparent with the good vibe and energy it creates. I’m also surrounded by good friends, and to me that’s a good party.
