More about DJ Ian Carey: That’s my job!

Ian Carey grew up with music, considering the situation and the people he grew up with. His father used to be a live sound engineer. It was also a hobby for him to play guitar and sing alongside his mother at a young age.

His father, rest in peace, also used to design for bands including Kool and The Gang (whose co-founder Dennis Thomas passed away almost two weeks ago.) At the age of 7, he could easily play the microphone on stage.

Years after he got into high school, he played drums and even participated in the school’s military band. It was around that time when he discovered dance music.

“Such a talented producer, falling in love with his work.”

Carey met hip-hop DJs and became a part of the graffiti creation scene based in Baltimore, Maryland. As he found his next passion, he started to buy multiple record players, starting his real career as a hip-hop DJ.

Naming a few of his works:

  • Keep on Rising · 2008
  • Get Shaky · 2009
  • Last Night · 2011
  • Let Loose · 2010
  • Amnesia · 2012
  • Lights Out · 2012
  • Baddest Chick · 2013

Due to “Get Shaky’s Project,” he explained: “Can’t say I thought it would be a massive hit, not to the extent that it has gone, but I knew it was a good record; otherwise I would not have finished it and put it out.”

In an interview, he once talked about his specific interest in the hip-hop genre: “I sill listen to hip hop, but it’s different now, not really better or worse, but different, it’s basically pop music. I actually would not mind getting back into hip hop on the production tip.”

In the middle of the interview, he was asked if he was excited to be playing at Future Music: “Yes, of course, it’s awesome… I’m going to play some good tunes and make people dance. That’s my job!”

About his thoughts on the dance scene in Australia, he expressed: “Seems to be coming along quite nicely, and it has grown in the past years for sure. To see my record in the top 10 for so long proves that!”

To answer the question, due to the best thing which has ever happened during his career, he said: “Just being able to make music and play for a living over the past years, really, that’s my goal, and it seems to be working out ok.”
