Kirstin Keegan from Dublin Ireland has had a very passionatelove for music all her life. From a very young age she entered the world of music as a dancer and competed for many years leading up through her teens. As much as she loved to dance it simply wasn’t enough for her and she thought what better way to express her love for beats than entering the DJ scene.

Kirstin grew up having many fellow DJ friends therefore she would attend all their gigs admiring and enjoying their sets. Watching and listening to others perform in the mix, only gave her a bigger craving to be a DJ herself.

Back in 2005 Kirstin played on a set of 1210`s for the very first time with one of her pals. Regretting not picking up mixing full time at this point she continued dancing and let her urge to Dj lie dormant

As the years went on to 2011 Kirstin wanted more out of music. She wanted to feel the music more and feed the crowd with beats on the dance floor.

On August 14th 2010 Kirstin played her first gig at The Vaults IFSC Dublin. However much she enjoyed it she was still unable to mix at this stage and it gave her an even greater urge to push forward.

August 28th just two weeks after her first gig, Kirstin played her second gig in the Cave (Radio City).Still unable to mix Kirstin was delighted to get her second gig and played her set.

December 2010 just a week before Christmas, Kirstin woke up determined to buy a set of Pioneer CDJ 1000 mk3`s and a DJM 800 by the end of the day. As wacky as her brainwave was with the equipment being so expensive she wasn’t going to rest till she got them. Kirstin had her 3rd gig coming up on the 15th of January in The Vaults playing oldskool Dance Classics, and she made it her New Year’s Resolution to be mixing for 2011 at her next gig.

By the end of that day Kirstin had a set of Mk3 CDJ`s and an 800 mixer sitting in the back seat of her car driving home to Dublin in the snow from Tyrone with the biggest smile on her face. Without the help of her loving mum pulling together with Kirstin to make up the pounds for her decks, it wouldn’t have been possible.

January came and the count down to Kirstin’s 3rd gig was on. The pressure was on as it was the 9th of January 2011, a week to the gig and she still didn’t know how to turn her decks on. With the much appreciated help of a complete stranger at the time, Kirstin was thought how to mix throughout 5 very stressful and sleepless nights. On the 10th of January the fun began for Kirstin when she was mixing. The following day after covering the BPM`s on the MK 3`s, putting the pitch completely off on both decks and removing the headphones from the mixer Kirstin was taught how to beat match, and how to pitch & jog.

Shocked and delighted with her quick results in learning to mix, Kirstin decided to get her first tattoo of musical notes on her right shoulder and back to represent her first day in the mix with the date 10/01/11 in it.

After her gig on January 15th 2011 in The Vaults finally mixing, there was no turning back for Kirstin. For the summer of 2011 kirstin was commuting between Ireland and Ibiza. She flew back to Dublin for GlobalNRG to DJ and then back to Ibiza with her new decks to further her career in Djing.
