DJ Veeva began chasing her musical aspirations in 2005, launching her career at Melbourne club Two Floors Up, where she played a 5 hour set for 500 guests at a private function organised by Red Bull. This event marked the beginning of a musical journey, and one that she just can’t get enough of.
Fusing phat, chunky, dirty, deep, progressive tech house beats with a twist, Veeva will have you burning up the dance floor for hours. Connecting with the audience and watching them dance like they have never danced before, is what makes Veeva’s world go round. Its where her heart and soul is.
In 2006, Veeva had her first interstate experience, when she was invited to be a guest DJ for the infamous Versus party, a monthly event held at Quest Nightclub by Toomba Records on the Gold Coast. Her performance achieved overwhelming response from patrons, and she was acknowledged for her flair and unique style of progressive house; her high energy sounds left the crowd begging for more. Since 2007, Veeva has been a rotating guest DJ for an impressive list of interstate events and venues including Platinum Lounge, Divas of Dance (Mackay), L.A. Hotel (Brisbane), Parkwood Tavern (Gold Coast), Twistered Arm (Brisbane), Beauty Vs The Beast event (Brisbane), Temple (Gold Coast), Players (Gladstone,QLD), Sugarland (Bundaberg,QLD), Quest (Gold Coast), NYE @ Parkwood Tavern (Gold Coast).

Following the success of her radio debut, Veeva was invited back to appear on Jason D’Costa’s Roxx Kiss FM program, and has since earned herself a regular solo segment with the station, appearing on airwaves Tuesday evenings from 6pm-7pm. With continual requests to appear on other programs, her work has also featured on Novanation’s Next Generation.

She works tirelessly in the studio, devoting much of her time to working alongside other artists and producers, relishing every opportunity to advance her skills. Veeva believes that dreams can come true, but knows that this can only be possible with a deep sense of self credence, sheer hard work, and the right attitude. All things she has learnt to be key elements, if one wishes to succeed in the club scene.
Veeva has proven to deliver a distinctive sound, synthesizing her idiosyncrasies into her sets, she never fails to have dance floors filled. It is without a doubt that she has earned her stripes as one of the nation’s most accomplished female disc jockeys. Reflecting on her experiences to date, Veeva acknowledges ’the best part of the journey is the ride’, and hence, she lives by this mantra, an understanding that has become integral to her philosophy. She will continue to rise to the top, dedicated to her purpose, and empowered by her love for music, her greatest and most enduring passion.
Whilst her very own track is in the making, Veeva is currently working on an exclusive deep house mix for On It Records, which is due to be released on Itunes in January 2012.
