NEHEMIA, better known as Nehemia Halawane started his DJ career at the age of 19. It all began when he was 6 years old. At the age of 6 he developed an interest for music. He began to play the drums and went to the music school to learn more about how to play the drums. After a while Nehemia got his first drum kit from his parents and started to play like there was no end.
Thirteen years later, NEHEMIA started to make mixtapes on the computer. He uploaded some mixtapes on soundcloud and got his first feedback. The feedback on my mixtapes was positive and that lead to my first bookings in Maastricht for one of the biggest sororities in Maastricht. With this booking, I slowly, step by step, started to grow with my DJ career. I began to practice every day after school at 'Cuttin' Class' in Heerlen to improve my technique.
When I heard about the 'Starbeach DJ Contest 2012', I immediately registred for the contest. To win this contest you had to stay in the top 5 by getting the most votes and after the voting period you would have gotten an email with the message that you would get through to the finals. I got the email, did the finals and did my very best and won the 'Starbeach DJ Contest 2012', which has become my first booking abroad. That means that I am going to play in Hersonissos in Greece this summer.
So it is going to be a great summer for me with lots of fun and a new chapter in my career!
