Dutch-born and US-based International DJ + Sound Designer from Amsterdam.
She is admired for her warm and approachable personality to her craft. She played in places such as St Barth, St Maarten, Aruba, Vegas, Amsterdam and NYC. She has spun for Madonna, Missy Elliott, Carmelo Anthony, Louis Vuitton, Facebook, Victoria Secret, Microsoft & Dolce Gabbana, just to name a few. She was also featured in R&R magazine, a sister publication to Billboard Magazine.
“Growing up, Music, Dance and Travel were my biggest passions” says Desire, whose parents are from Surinam (South America) and Indonesia. She is also multi-lingual, she speaks Dutch, English, French and German. Desire is a very adventurous & vibrant person and she knew Amsterdam was not going to be her only home. Her love for music brought her to St Maarten, where she was offered a radio show.
Unfortunately, she felt the tropical island was too small for her dreams, so she packed her bags and flew to the Big Apple: New York City, where her best friend lived at the time.In NYC they got in contact with Prince Paul (producer De La Soul) and started creating mixtapes. The duo from Amsterdam created a buzz in NYC and dubbed themselves HYPNOTIXX. This lead to numerous upscale club gigs, and it did not stop there. One of her dreams was to accomplish radio presence. She accomplished this in 2005 and got offered a radio slot on KS107.5 as an on air personality. Her charisma and knowledge for music also landed her a daily show on ManiaTV!, where she hosted a music and lifestyle show called Rapper’s Dlite and later Flipside.
