Desire is an international Celebrity DJ and also awarded BEST FEMALE DJ – 2013. She was born
and raised in Amsterdam (The Netherlands).
“ Growing up, Music, Dance and Travel were my biggest passions” says DJ Desire, whose
parents are from Surinam (South America) and Indonesia.
In Amsterdam she was a dance instructor and performed as a back up dancer for various
international and national artists. Even then, she knew Amsterdam was not going to be her only
home. Her love for music brought her to St Martin, where she was offered a radio show.
Unfortunately, she felt the tropical island was too small for her dreams, so she packed her bags
and flew to the Big Apple : New York City, where her best friend lived at the time. In NYC they
got in contact with Prince Paul (producer De La Soul) and also started creating mixtapes. The
duo from Amsterdam created a buzz in NYC and dubbed themselves HYPNOTIXX.
This lead to numerous upscale club gigs, and it did not stop there. One of her dreams was to
accomplish radio presence. She accomplished this in 2005 and got offered a radio slot on
KS107.5 as an on air personality. Her charisma and knowledge for music also landed her a daily
show on ManiaTV!, where she hosted a music and lifestyle show called Rapper’s Dlite and later
DJ Desire has DJ-ed for celebrities such as Madonna, Missy Elliott, T Pain, and NY Knicks’
Carmelo Anthony just to name a few. Desire is more than good looks and taste, Desire
possesses heart and character and these qualities shine through her music
