DJ Peanuts served his apprenticeship as a drummer in various music groups before evolving to become a DJ in the late 80’s. His DJ career began with inspiration from Hip-Hop with the likes of Pete Rock, DJ Premier and Tribe Called Quest ( his favorite ).
After this, by a happy coincidence he was offered to DJ in a club where he discovered House Music. Having found his ultimate passion in House Music, he continues to explore music through the more soulful sides. In Vietnam for four years he played in various places such as :
Blanchy’s Tash Saigon , OMG Saigon , Le Vasco’s Saigon ,La Fenetre Soleil Saigon , Boudoir Lounge Saigon , Cloud 9 Saigon , Lush Bar Saigon , Last Call Saigon , Armani Cafe Saigon , Hotel Hilton Hanoi , Angelina cafe Hanoi , Ala Mezon Saigon , Hotel Melia Hanoi , Le Flow Saigon , Le Bootleg Dj Cafe Saigon …
DJ Peanuts eclectic sets vary around a Deep House, Garage and Old School sound. And always, always…. soulful. Good listening and peace.
