Somebody's out this weekend

DJ Roxy's love for music and beats is driving her into new territory for Namibian girl DJs.

Moved by her love for music, upcoming female DJ Rosalia David, better known as DJ Roxy, is slowly but surely making a name for herself in what was previously perceived as a male-dominated industry. She proves it with an upcoming sizzling new single.

A music lover for as long as she can remember, the idea of becoming a DJ came to mind when she worked part-time at Base FM, and from there, there was no turning back.

The house single titled 'Somebody' is said to be dropping this weekend. Speaking to tjil, DJ Roxy said, “I never had plans to release music. All I wanted was to be a DJ. My mindset only changed after having an exclusive interview with the KFC DJs on their new single where DJ Chinchila advised local DJs to start making their own music and I thought to myself, why not?”

The song was produced by Sam E. Lee Jones, and mixed and mastered by DJ Kboz and the House Guru Gang. Pressed on what the message in the song is all about, she said it speaks about wanting somebody to have fun with just for the night.

“There are just those times when one feels like it is not always needed to catch feelings with everyone you meet. Some people are meant to just pass by, so, if you're going to develop feelings for each person you meet, how many heartbreaks will you have to go through? But I am also not promoting one-night stands,” she explained.

Although her inspiration to release a single came from DJ Chinchila, she said she has always looked up to legendary DJs such as DJ Charlie 911, DJ Kboz and DJ Flava.

“These are the people I would watch from far. I would admire DJ Flava and DJ Clap when they were dancing at the booth entertaining the crowd, and I would stare admiring from the bar where I worked,” she explained.

She added that music has always been part of her life journey as she started off as a dancer.

“Singing is one thing God never blessed me with, lol, but I love to dance. I would sneak out of the house just to dance at school competitions. My guardians would get so annoyed. I joined radio part-time and from there I started managing a couple of musicians. I have always been behind the scenes. When I left radio, I became an entertainment journalist while learning how to DJ at the same time, all for the love of music,” she said.
