Early lifestyle

He started DJing as a teenager, spinning at local parties and events, and quickly developed a reputation for his fresh, eclectic sound. The rest, as they say, is history

DJ Neptune was grinding hard. He would lug his equipment around town, often playing small gigs for little pay. But he was relentless, networking and building connections, always pushing to take his music to the next level. And it paid off – by his early 20s, he was starting to make a name for himself, playing bigger shows and producing tracks for established artists.
