Once DJ Paris Darnell regained his passion to becoming a professional DJ, Paris decided to upload his mixes onto SoundCloud and eventually hand out CDs to friends, families and clients. From a young age Paris Darnell has been playing all around the city of London and even outside of it. “ I remember getting a bookings in Liverpool, Birmingham, Nottingham. Bookings were coming in like crazy because my dad and I put in the work of getting our self registered onto Google; people would either type in on Google: DJ for hire in west London, DJ for hire, DJ hire prices London, DJ hire Kent, DJ hire London, DJs for hire prices, Wedding DJ hire London, Cheap DJ hire London an we would come up.At one point I even flew out for a family holiday to Turkey and my dad managed to get me my first threeinternational gigs. I Dj’ed for a boat party, a hotel and a club night. My dad was surprised I didn’t get stage fright or whatever, as this was huge for any DJ let alone a 16 year old”. Paris Darnell continues to shut down numerous events whether it is club nights &birthday parties or formal events such as: weddings, funerals, cabarets & award ceremonies. “ … playing for the Diversity Legal Awards was great plus I learnt a lot while being there. I will say I definitely didn’t feel like the smartest person there, but having that experience of being apart of an award show was something to remember for me”.
At 17 Paris started to take an interest in creative media, capture and editing footage, finding new original and authentic ways to create videos. Although Paris was rough around the edges when it came to editing in the beginning but then attended West Thames College and now has gained a better understanding to making a successful video. Paris has created multiple adverts for several business, edited video bloggers, film and edited his own projects such as tutorials, short movies and also music videos for underground artist. He’s currently now trying to find new ways to combine his knowledge of filming and editing into his DJ work. As we said before Paris Darnell is phenomenal and we cant wait to see what the future holds for this young man.
