#23 - Philip “Dr.PhilGood” Nikolajev
Jun 13th, 2019 by louispodcast
If you want to know how to make it as a DJ in Estonia, this is your episode!
I talk with Philip Nikolajev, better known as DJ Dr.PhilGood. Phil is super well respected live DJ and producer, current program manger at Club Studio and member of kick ass Estonian band Gram-Of-Fun. Phil has DJ'ed a bunch of Comedy Estonia gigs over the years and I count him as a friend.
We go right through the way you can build yourself up as a DJ in Estonia. We start at home, mixing your own tracks, look at making your own parties to build a name and then move into the advanced stuff like learning about the community, getting mix tapes into the hands of club managers and then how and when you should try and find a manager.
It's all in here: what social media to use, how do you ask for money for your gigs, how to stay humble and focus on your work. It was a really good talk with my man and I think we really get into the good stuff in the second half.
Phil is currently working as a member of Gram-of-Fun, a band with the super impressive lineup of himself, Dj Jaan Jaago, Muudu and Kristel Aaslaid. Go listen to their new EP "Second Breakfast" on your fav streaming service now: https://lnk.to/SecondBreakfast
