As one of the leading ladies on the scene, DJ Alana has been breaking down walls since she started spinning in 2009. A lover of music since day one, she’d practice her DJing for fun at the club she worked at.
“It was just a hobby”, says Alana. “I never wanted to do it as a job and never thought you could actually do it as a career. For me as a DJ it’s been a balance of playing commercial music, remixes and a sound that also reflects who I am. I love watching people get surprised when I drop a track they wouldn’t expect.”
Her love of music came to her at a young age listening to her dad’s Michael Jackson tapes on repeat. As a teenager she developed an interest in a wide range of genres from punk rock, hip hop, r&b to house which is how she developed her current DJ style. Her many major influences and inspirations are Kaskade, Deadmau5, Armand Van Helden & David Guetta.
Alana has played all over the country, some of the venues include: Dee Why Hotel, The Ivanhoe Hotel, The Mean Fiddler, The Marlborough Hotel, Unity Hall, The Oaks, The Crows Nest Hotel & The Gladestone Reef Hotel.
Known for R&B, hiphop & house sets, DJ Alana has raised eyebrows, pulses and hands across club floors around Australia in her 3 years as a DJ.
DJ Alana can be seen at Scruffy Murphys every Wednesday night, The Mariott Hotel Thursdays & Fridays, and The Marlborough Hotel in Newtown every Saturday.
