Filipinos are known for being great DJs, perhaps it is because music is always playing in family households whether via a fun karaoke night or a holiday gathering. Since the birth of Hip Hop, DJs like Q-Bert, DJ Icy Ice, DJ E-Man, Mix Master Mike, Shortkut and so many more have dominated the DJ battles and radio waves. Filipina iconic DJs like Kuttin Kandi and Symphony (World Famous Beat Junkies) have paved the way for the next generation of pinay DJs.
