Spotlight on DJ Night- Katrina Karsin Reporting…



Time stands still as DJ Night begins mixing live, his soothing deep style is inexhaustible and vast. DJ Night. A (nightattack.guardian) is from Portugal and is a well-recognized SL DJ in the House music scene since 2009. 


Interview with DJ Night

Kat: Hi DJ Night, it's so very nice to see you again! How did you discover Second Life? 

DJ Night: I remember it was from some ads... don't remember if from TV or internet.

Kat: Probably from the internet.  Who inspired you to become a Deejay?  

DJ Night: When I was younger, I would go to a bar that a friend DJ’d at.  Watching how he could create a positive vibe mixing music, so everyone is having a good time made me think "I want to do it".  Later Carl Cox was always a reference RL and in SL and an old friend Kumiko Bookmite who taught me the art of spinning.

Kat: I remember Kumiko he is another great DJ. Do you like all kinds of music or certain genres? 

DJ Night: I like almost all kinds of music. Of course, it depends on the mood at the moment, sometimes I want Kizomba or Fado, other times I want Techno. As a DJ and talking about the electronic music scene, my favorite styles are Deep House & Deep Techno scene with all the melodic, progressive, tribal, and acid beats.

Kat: How you mix melodies with tribal and acid beats is luscious. May I ask, are you a real-life DJ, musician, or producer?  If so,  How long have you done this?


DJ Night: I started spinning in 1999 in private parties etc., then started to work as DJ in 2006 and have been doing it for some time.  But there is a moment in our lives that we need to decide what we want for our future, and in my case, I decided to go in another direction. Sometimes I still do it especially in the summer, but always as a hobby.  

Kat: Outdoor summer venues really are the best parties!  Do you primarily DJ for tips or get paid by the club? 

DJ Night: Primarily I DJ because it is something I love to do, and besides the love of mixing I find it is something I need to do almost like a calling in life. When I put the headphones on my head and I press the play button, for me, it’s like the entire world stops. There is no work, no stress, no phones, no emails no nothing... it's only me and my music...!! It's my escape from the world!  SL lindens as payment for DJs in SL is a delicate and huge subject that one day I would love to see discussed. Sadly, those who spin in SL for money will be easily and quickly frustrated lol. I spin for the love of music and to share my art... not for money, so usually I just login into tip jars.

Kat:  Your love of music seeps into another's soul like the morning sun rising, warming your skin and connecting humanity. You also make and sell club equipment in Second Life why? 

DJ Night:  Because I used to work a lot in RL modeling and I like it, so I thought why not make some stuff for SL!  Did you see a need or demand for nice-looking club furniture? At that time there were not a lot of mesh items, as far as I know, my club called Relax was the first mesh club in SL.  Unfortunately, I don’t have much time now to make things in Second Life like I used to. 

Kat: Balancing time is difficult for everyone.  Do you have a calendar, so our readers know when you are DJing? 

DJ Night:  No. I have an SL Group where I usually share the information about my sets. Usually, I spin 2/3 times a week.


Kat: Having a group is probably the easiest way to let others know when you are going to spin, especially if you decide to pick up a set at the last minute.   How can venues book your service?

DJ Night:  Sending me an IM. 

Kat: A direct line of communication is the best way.  Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

DJ Night:  Wanna invite them to show up in some of my sets, and let me share this art. Hope I can provide a good time for everyone full of fun and good groovy music. We all know we are living in a historical time, and most of us are overwhelmed with the current news.  So logging into Second Life to listen to DJ Night Attack will take you on a journey that you will not soon forget, relaxing you and giving you a sense of tranquility.  Maybe even let time stand still for a little with DJ Night and regenerate our souls.
