Baz is the founder and Principal DJ of BeatsAhead DJ Hire.
His love of music first had him selecting songs for community and block parties. After being asked if he could cover a work event when their booked DJ dropped out, his DJ career took off. After gaining experience with private parties, and then some clubs he moved on to become resident DJ at Mamalangi, and had the opportunity to work alongside world famous DJs including
Now he works full time as a DJ giving him the time he needs for client & venue visits. His multi genre skillset means he can be dropped into any party and bring it to life.
He’s an amazingly talented Party DJ, and your friends (but not your feet) will thank you for having him DJ at your party!
What a fantastic team BeatsAhead are! You were super helpful when I made that first call to ask you all those questions - "no dad dancing DJ please!"
Leading up to the event, everything was clear and informative.
The girls were happy that they could add their requests to a playlist.
And Baz....well he was amazing - he had all those 18 year olds on that dance floor.
You even coordinated the photo booth for us.
Thank you team BeatsAhead!
We will definitely be recommending you to all our friends!
We can’t express how thankful we are to you for making our wedding world class. The musicality of Baz and his craft is truly a sensational gift of art. We danced all night long and everyone found their rhythm to all your tunes. We could not have asked for anymore! You were the first and only man of music we looked into and GOD showed us why it’s worthy of being faithful. The energy you showed in coordination with the skill of getting everyone to share the musical joy in what we love to hear was beautiful. Michelle, if it wasn’t for your kindness of expressing warmth who knows where we would have ended up. You enamoured us over the phone and instilled us with overwhelming confidence. We can testify that BEATSAHEAD is the dream team to get on aboard for all those special events in your life. Music is the food of love so let BEATSAHEAD play on! Thank you for making our wedding day memorable.
We used BeatsAhead to book DJ Baz for our wedding in Poole.His equipment setup worked perfectly in the room and the sound quality was absolutely on point.He was also very easy to work with and played so many great songs both from our playlist (which we filled in using their playslist site) and from guest requests.The dance floor was never empty and actually getting the guests to leave was the hardest part of the night as they kept demanding 'one more song'.Michelle was also great with helping us organise everything before our wedding from the initial booking process to managing timings for the day. The communication and overall service we received was fantastic.Definitely highly recommend 🙂
THANK YOU so much for such a phenomenal disco at our wedding last night. We absolutely loved the music that you played and all our guests said how much they enjoyed it. The dance floor was full from minute one and we couldn’t have asked for better. Everything from your organisation on the night to the arrangement of the service initially with Michelle was flawless. We won’t hesitate to use you again and have already
Baz was brilliant! We picked Beats Ahead because of the fact that you can submit a list of “must play” songs and “do not play” songs as although we wanted a variety of music we wanted to have some control of the songs and be able to give our DJ a steer in the style/mood of songs we wanted. And we are so glad we did as the music was perfect!
Baz played all of the songs that we asked him to and the best thing was that he read the room so well, everyone was up on the dance floor! He accommodated special requests and played a variety of songs which seemed to suit the mood (avoiding any of the tragic wedding classics!). Everyone mentioned how good he was compared to the usual wedding DJs. Would recommend 100%.
We were absolutely delighted with your service. Baz is an excellent DJ, arrived and set up in plenty of time for the start – he played non-stop for 5 hours; all the tracks we requested beautifully hand mixed. We will definitely book with you again for future parties – and we know our guests were impressed as well because 3 of them asked DJ Baz for his card
We cannot recommend Beats Ahead enough! We booked DJ Baz for our wedding on June 11th 2016 and he absolutely made the night for us! Every single guest commented how fantastic the music was and we had a huge variety in ages but DJ Baz had the dancefloor packed all night long! The best thing that we did was book DJ Baz for our wedding and we cannot wait to throw another party and book him again – In fact many of our guests have already requested that we do ASAP! Michelle was also extremely helpful throughout the whole process and the online playlist is a fabulous idea and extremely easy to use! Thank you so much to the Beats Ahead team for helping to make our special day the wonderful event that it was! Don’t hesitate to book DJ Baz – you certainly will not be disappointed and we can’t wait to party with you again!!!
Just want to say a MASSIVE thank you to Baz he really did make our party. We had a mixture of young and more mature people at the party and he catered to everyone's taste in music. He gave shout outs where appropriate which was a nice touch too. Honestly couldn't fault him in anyway, he was perfect and his set up of all the equipment was impressive looking too. He was very professional and friendly and didn't mind taking the requests too. When he arrived, he told me to just show him where to set up and then for me to continue getting ready and leave him to it - when I came back down after about 20 minutes, he was all set up perfectly and testing the sound, which just put our mind at ease immediately and made us feel comfortable. THANK YOU BAZ! we will definitely be recommending him to all our friends.
My 50th Birthday celebration, I chose BeatsAhead due to the very good feedback from previous customers. I must say they were brilliant, when I was organising my 50th, very easy to use platform to create your own playlist if you wish or choose BeataAhead listings. Michelle was great answering all my questions. They arrived early to set up and was ready to go for the time to start, It was an all white party and Baz (DJ) wore white. Baz was fantastic, he had everyone on the dance floor, excellent mix of music (I love Reggae, soca,soul), they had all the music I had requested, we danced, danced, danced. Well worth booking.
A huge thank you for making our day so special. We loved the music and everyone had the best time, the end of the evening with everyone dancing and Lawrence and I in the centre was a true highlight for me. The tunes kept coming and was such a good mix. Thank you for all your support and for helping us with our ceremony music and our many questions. We are so pleased we had Baz DJ our wedding and to help make it the perfect day it was.
Baz was excellent and played good music in the evening that everyone enjoyed (although we didn’t give him much direction on what to play). They were also very flexible with the set-up times as we required them to set up early in the afternoon so there would be no disruption during the dinner. I highly recommend them!
The mixes below will give you a general idea of the range Baz has, and his mixing ability. The music he plays for each party is unique and bespoke to that event.
He can confidently play anything and everything from White Tie Events to School Discos, and Sweet 16th’s to 90ths.
He’s doesn’t create a playlist in advance preferring to select tracks when he has the crowd to respond to, but is always happy for you to provide a list of the songs you want (and don’t want).
