DJANEMAG: Introduce yourself (give a couple of interesting facts) 

RAQUEL D.K.: Dear Djanemag and readers! I am DJ Raquel D.K. In my work I try to make people to forget about everything and have fun with my sets, I hope that you join the party with me!

DJANEMAG: Let's start with where are you from? Tell us something about your country, your native city, how did your childhood go? Can you remember the moment when you decided to go for it and be a DJ? 

RAQUEL D.K.: I’m from Spain with Egyptian roots. I was born in the city of Granada & grown up in Marbella. I am proud to live in this beautiful city, for it’s climate, the diversity of cultures, the party atmosphere and more important to be, where my career began as a DJ; to be able to develop your work in your native city is luxury.

All started thanks to my partner, who one Christmas day gave me a small controller as a present ... that was practically like a toy ... I was searching for new music always, he thought that I could dedicate myself to this, in fact, before I knew him, as a child I had tried different music programs, like virtual DJ, Fruity loops ... in those days I was trying to mix with the computer and sometimes there was luck and something sounded good ... but not always ...

I never gave up and after many hours of practice, fights and hard work, I started DJing with him at privates parties, it was almost like when the little bird left the nest when I was ready to fly ....7 years have passed and here I am, doing what I love most, even today I keep learning  because I always discover new things in this world that It captivates me. It's incredible, I started with a toy and Now I can play with everything that I have in front of me, even with vinyl, it's very fun, I love it.

DJANEMAG: Advantages and disadvantages in being a female DJ?

RAQUEL D.K.: I personally believe that it has no advantage or disadvantage, we are all in the same conditions to do this job, women or men, but for  people, ee supposedly have the advantage of being women and many think that We are there just for being a woman ... but I think We are stronger, because even though they devalue our work and many only see a physical, We can show that our work also makes a difference.
