Goa has won acclaims for producing quite a few good-looking models and immensely talented
musicians for quite sometime now. And what could be better than a man who has both - the looks that could make anyone bewitched alongwith the gift of playing the best of music? Ignatius Camilo aka DJ Iggy is coming to town to rock and swoon, to play and make you dance
and, of course, to make you all have the blast of a lifetime. Originally from Goa, model-cum-DJ Iggy’s foray into the world of music began with small parties which, at that time, were still dominated by stereotypical commercial music. “I played at Titos, Cubana, Taj, Leela, Marriot, etc., and picked up small time modelling assignments to sustain myself. Finally, summoning up a lot of courage, I left my hometown and shifted base to Mumbai,” expresses this tall, dark and handsome dude. After rocking the party scene in Goa and Mumbai, Iggy can be vouched upon as one of the hottest DJs in Delhi not only for his chic looks but also for his apt hands working on the turntable, producing the best of funky house music. Keeping up the theme, ‘Goan Groove’ will showcase a unique lineup of funky house numbers — DJ Iggy’s signature style and Goan trance.
As a model, Iggy has walked the ramp for Wendell Rodericks, Rohit Bal, Aki Narula, Rocky S and Varun Bahl. He did as many as 14 shows at LIFW (Lakme India Fashion Week) 2004 apart from giving music for designers like Varun Bahl, Narendra Kumar and Rohit Bal’s shows.
It was DJ Iggy who played for the 2005 Opening Fashion Week Party. “I did not follow the clichéd genres of music and made my own mixes,” says Iggy. “But I also faced a lot of criticism from people who could not connect to it.” DJ Iggy has become a sensation in Delhi and mostly all of his gigs overflow. He likes to tease crowds with a combination of beats and bass lines, and then hypnotise them into submission by taking them on a series of small builds and climaxes until finally dropping the ‘secret weapon tracks’ near the end of the set.
