The music industry is arguably one of the most competitive fields, with hundreds joining the space every day. This makes it extremely challenging for artists to establish their place. But this has not stopped Kristan de Graaf from building his name and cementing his spot as both a DJ and producer.
Despite being away from the industry for 4 years, Kristan has reclaimed his place just a few months after his return, and his latest album Palabras is topping the charts. Palabras is already a trending sound on Spotify with thousands of streams. It has become a household tune, receiving massive attention from the public and other big names in the music industry.
Kristan’s vast experience as a DJ, diversity in his music selection, and unique sound give him an upper hand, allowing him to solidify his spot in the industry once more. Before taking a break, Kristan was the youngest No. 1 Asian DJ.
He was crowned No.1 DJ and Asia’s Most Talented DJ, a title he held for three consecutive years. Kristan is also one of the world’s most recognized faces on the festival circuit and has won multiple platinum awards.
His deep passion for music and go-getter spirit helped him stand out and make his mark in the industry even after all these years. According to Kristan, he has had a deep passion for music from a young age. He explains that since he was a kid, he has always loved listening to music, which inspired him to start his journey as a DJ and producer.
In 2013, Kristan made his debut in the industry when he was just 18 years. His unbeatable skills and high-energy performances helped him break into the global music scene, and he was the youngest DJ to be crowned No.1 DJ.
However, after almost a decade of touring and producing music, DJ Kristan took a break from the festival circuit. He is now back, and he has managed to successfully reclaim his position in just a few months with his new album Palabras setting new standards.
He says that now that he is back, his goal is to continue creating timeless music as he uses his platform to encourage and support his audience and others in the music industry. “Achieving your goals is never easy, and there are always challenges,” says DJ Kristan.
Even so, that shouldn’t give you a reason to give up. While Kristan’s journey in the last decade hasn’t been easy, he has not given up on his passion, and he is now a top DJ/producer in the US and beyond. He is topping the charts with his new album Palabras and setting the bar for himself even higher.
As he continues to flourish, Kristan de Graaf has reclaimed his spot in the industry and is redefining the space with his unique sound. He says that he has so many projects coming up in the next few months.
