Dj Arlene ( Bangalore, India )
WHO: DJ Arlene ( Arlene Maria Gomez) , a 22 year old who was the first ever lady Dj to break the barriers of the male dominated profession of disc jockeying in Bangalore, started her career at the age of 18, as a free lancing Dj. She has traveled all over India and played for a huge variation of crowds. For her very first event she played with Bangaloreâs top male Djs.
WHERE: Arleneâs hometown is Bangalore. Bangalore is known to be the capital of International Club music in India , and the home of some of the most talented Djs too.
CURRENTLY IN HOUSE: Currently spinning every Wednesday and Friday night at Athenaâs in The Leela Palace Bangalore. Athenaâs is one of the most classiest, happening clubs in India, known for its mix of high profile members and the regular party animals.
MUSIC STYLE: House music and all its variants( from mellow Vocal House to Club to Progressive to Electro). But being a DJ in India, you cannot stick to just one style of music, the crowd expects a little bit of everything in one night. So Arlene also plays Trance, Hip Hop, RnB, Retro & Rock.
