My Story: DJing

Zoltan Szalai, born in Subotica (SR), is referred to as a member of the new generation of djs in Serbia and is currently both a dj and a producer. Just like most of his colleagues, he recognized his own personal interest in music at an early age. It started out as a hobby when he was just 15 and he played his first gig at age 18 in 2005. Since then he's been working on his career as a dj. In the beginning he entertained his audience with Progressive House, and then, when Deep and Tech House started to become dominant he found himself enjoying playing both. He’s been working on organizing large events, gigs lately along with colleague Ascaloon, both of them members of the Progressive Passion crew.

These events include yearly open-air parties and a number of club nights, with bigger and bigger names performing as guests every year. He played at prime time as main attraction of the party a number of times in countries such as Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary and Greece.

One of his most notable gigs was a performance in a fortress in Pula (CRO) where he played alongside Dj Tarkan, and also a gig in Slovenia’s famous club, K-4, with Kintar.

Nowadays he only produces music that can hold water on a really swifty club night. Since it is really hard to prevail today, Chrono and his colleagues are preparing a number of performances as we speak. Some begest name's are played his work's.
