Here’s my inaugural post in DDJT. I came across the following link and thought it’s worth sharing. Never thought of Idris Elba as a DJ. What do you guys think?
WORKING ON A DREAM: Idris Elba
He is awesome! I had the pleasure of seeing him this year, two notable things;
His clap is really loud.
He is f***ing HUGE! He is so built! He is an absolute monster behind the decks.
but yes, i think youd be quite surprised about how many actors all so have other past times, take a look into Craig Charles of Coronation Street for example!
It’s funny. My first experience with Elba was when he produced and hosted that special on “How Clubbing Changed the World”
Since then I suddenly saw him in shows like Luther, The Flash, etc. I read how he does events at DC10 in Ibiza.
Frankly, I’ve seen many celebrities become DJs. Many do it for the wrong reasons, but a few for the right ones.
Both Idris & Craig were heavily into music prior to becoming famous.
Another surprise to some is snooker legend Steve Davis who has an unrivalled collection of funk & soul 45s. Alleged to have won this 45;
He’s from London and was a DJ in clubs before he became famous as an actor.. so we could say he’s a DJ who became an actor 😉
