Now the nights have a spring in their step it follows that the party should be bouncing about like mad. This month, Queenie catches up with DJ Little Rob and reckons his nights are going to be full of Easter promise…..
Hello! What is your DJ name? Little Rob, because I knew a few other Rob’s and I was always the shortest…..so not what you guys always think ;-)
Where can we see you playing these days? I’ve played top Brighton venues the Bulldog, Revenge, Legends and Boutique and I play a lot in London. I’ve also played great nights such as Marine Late at The Marine Tavern and The Big Scrum at Subline and have a a new residency at Bloc. There’s much more in the pipeline and I’m very excited about this Pride! All will soon be revealed!
How would you describe your djing style? Most my gigs vary in style/genre due to the night. At Marine Late I play 80s & HI-NRG, at Perfume Garden I play hard house & trance. The style I play out on a regular basis is house & commercial.
What’s your favourite song of all time? Hmmmm…. it has got to be Marmion Schoneberg (Marmion remix) because of my raver days at Tidy. Also it was the last song played at Trade at Turnmills, which is still very close to my heart.
Which tune always fills up (or rescues) your dancefloor? Zoe Badwi’s Release Me never fails do get the crowd moving.
What would be your ultimate dream gig? I would love to DJ at Dance Valley in Holland….. I get goosebumps when I see video clips of the crowds! Some of my DJ hero’s have played there too!
Name a tune you wish you’d never played? It has got to be that song from the Disney film Frozen. I even get asked at house gigs to play it! Everywhere I was I heard it and the craze went on for ages with people singing ‘let it go at you’. Especially that Monkey character.
Guilty pleasure? Ooooh well I have a few and they are Spice Girls, Bewitched, Steps….. and Danni Minogue’s All I Wanna Do.
What’s been your best ever gig? I can’t decide between the two, but main stage Trafalgar Square for London Pride or Maspalomas Gay Pride where I have played to a crowd of about 30,000. Absolutely immense!!!
Tell us a secret! I still have my teddy bear from when I was a born, though I don’t sleep with him like when I was a child…..
