You may know DJ Schooly as a presenter on Radio 1 for the Soulful Session, but little do people know that he’s actually a very talented producer who’s set up abums and singles for the likes of Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Akon, Sean Paul, David Grey, Missy Elliot, Pussycat Dolls and Rhianna. His credentials are nothing short of stellar.

“This year I’m getting back into the swing of things and working on projects for Rachael Calladine, Hamdan and Clarita De Quiroz’s debut album, plus I’ll be taking on two more albums and productions, including my own set of Soulful Session podcasts, which will be syndicated worldwide in May. It’s going to be interesting times ahead,” says the driven father-of-one (who has another one on the way).

Residing on The Palm Jumeirah, Schooly has been coming to the UAE for almost 11 years and has now set up a permanent home with his family, and has no plans to leave. “My life is pretty much perfect here. I don’t think there’s a city in the world that has grown and developed so much in the past 20 years.”
