Carl Hinds is a professional DJ with a broad range of international experience in corporate, private and arts-based functions, predominantly in the UK and Asia as a resident or guest DJ. Equipped with a wealth of musical knowledge, he plays to the crowd and curates unforgettable experiences that uplift and entertain diverse groups. Seamlessly blending together genres of music, Carl’s goal is to bring a joyous energy to any event.

As an old school vinyl DJ, he is often seen carrying his record box (and sometimes his turntables) to gigs. Preferring the authenticity and sound of original music, he is a purist at heart, loving nothing more than the snap crackle and pop sound of vinyl. In his own words, he says, ‘absolutely nothing will ever beat it!’ However, with the challenge of the current global lockdown, and the need to appeal to diverse audiences playing an unlimited range of music, Carl has extended his repertoire to include digital and online options to satisfy his clients being equally experienced and comfortable playing at large corporate events or private functions.

Since moving to Asia in 2010, Carl has helped to create and shape the music scene with his Soul, Funk and Disco series ‘STOMP’ and was a co-founder of the collective ‘Gimme Shelter’, a vinyl only event with some of Singapore’s most sought after DJs.

Carl is often seen at some of Asia’s most prestigious events such as the Iskandar Puteri Jazz Festival in Southern Malaysia where he performed as a DJ and Emcee. He has also worked at several annual corporate events such as The Retail Travel Awards in Singapore. His biggest gig was playing in front of 25,000 spectators at Crystal Palace Football ground in London prior to a Premier League game – and he’s never let anyone forget it!

Currently living in Penang Malaysia, Carl is an early pioneer in creating virtual online events with the launch of his show STIR CRAZY LIVE! A popular live streaming vinyl experience that is broadcast globally every weekend. He is also developing his own internet radio programme and creating a music-based podcast.

So, look out for Carl performing at an offline or online event near you and be prepared for an unforgettable show!
