Special Guest DJ: Carl James Lovell

Carl James Lovell

Joining The Social Scene direct from the UK, house supremo Carl James Lovell is a familiar face at some of the hottest destinations across England.

Carl's love of House music prompted him to buy his first set of turntables in 2000 and promptly set about expanding his collection focusing on house and funky house!

Terrace Sundaze, his weekly residency in Torquay brings a slice of Ibiza flair to the English Riviera. Carl’s EDM knowledge is extensive so often you will hear a set that boasts versatility and class. Playing everything from deep to tech and Funky to Progressive, Carl is also moving forward with producing mixes from the Beat and Breaks and Dubstep and Drum and Bass Genres.

He's now looking forward to collaborating with worldwide DJ/Producer Andrew Carvell from Toolroom.



BMO has been hitting the decks for a couple of years now. It all started in an empty dorm room and a copy of MIXXX DJ software. Always having the urge to gravitate to the iPod during parties, he thought to himself, why not DJ?

He purchased his first MIDI controller (mini turntables plugged to the computer) 3 months after learning to beat-match songs on his computer.

Building up his name around town doing some of the biggest house parties, it wasn't long before he found himself spinning in clubs such as: Titanium, Starlight Social Club, Caesar's Martinis, and Cameo.

A young DJ with a lot of potential, and charisma; DJ BMO is surely going to go far.

DJ Samijon

DJ SamijonAfter receiving a Vestax Typhoon Controller as a gift for Christmas, DJ Samijon was hooked. Spending all his free time on learning the techniques and different styles of mixing, his friends quickly noticed that he had the potential to be a good DJ.

After much encouragement from his peers, DJ Samijon was DJing at small parties and get-togethers for his friends. After about 6 months of practice, he purchased his first turntables and a mixer. Over the course of the next 8 months, he noticed that his skills and abilities to mix and blend songs had improved drastically.

It is at this point that DJ Samijon began looking to DJ at venues, and is excited to have his first gig at The Social Scene.
