It sure wasn’t written in the stars that Karsten Birkelund was to become a DJ. Not until the age of 23 and the DJ in his own, small club did not turn up one Saturday night, did things evolve. Karsten Birkelund took over the mixer himself all night and was both hooked and hatched the same night. The perfect match between music and performance saw the light of day.
Music, partying and disco had always been his greatest passion but since that night, his career as a DJ took off. Countless hours behind the decks later and music non-stop in his ears took all his time and in 2008 he became a full-blooded DJ.
In recent years, DJ Birkelund has been in great demand as a mainstream DJ on the Danish club scene and he has been an important attraction in clubs like Train & Kupé in Aarhus due to his professionalism, knowledge of music and passion for a good party. His skills have brought him to every corner of Denmark and he has left his mark on dozens of discos, cafés and clubs all around the kingdom. In 2012 he was nominated in the category Mainstream DJ of the Year at Danish DJ Awards.
DJ Birkelund’s inspiration comes from the happy 80s and 90s, classic R’n’B anthems, legendary club tracks, progressive house and mainstream hits - all served in a provocative and energetic style with the audience and the great party as the absolute target. DJ Birkelund has become well-known and notorious for playing 100% for his audience and for having an amazing ability to inspire the crowd and make them move to music they did not even know they liked.
DJ Birkelund’s passion for good music of all genres has taken him out of Denmark and to a number of successful jobs abroad. Jobs in Norway, Bulgaria and most recently Jordan and Holland only seem to be the beginning. Birkelund has played all kinds of parties, from big mainstream club gigs to progressive house events. In 2012 Birkelund played twice at Scandinavian’s largest electronic music festival, Distortion, with huge success.
Wherever he goes, he always creates successful and good parties. When DJ Birkelund is behind the decks you can be sure of a night with up-beat mixes of new hits, old classics and all the songs you had forgotten you wanted to hear. It almost sounds quite normal – and still DJ Birkelund is one of a kind!
