My Story

“My name is Calvin John, founder of Turn The Music Up which is based in South Queensferry, Edinburgh.

Music has turned from being an interest to a passion for me and from a young age, when I used to DJ for friends and family, which was more of a hobby at the time, I quickly realised that I received so much satisfaction from seeing people enjoy themselves, dancing to the music I played, that deep down, I knew that becoming a DJ was a career path I wanted to follow.

Over the years, I gained experience from playing at various events and fully aware that styles and techniques change in this industry, I took the decision to attend the Edinburgh DJ Academy in January 2015 and was mentored by Ritchie Ruftone, 3 times DMC World Champion. On completion of the course, I achieved “A” Ratings for all categories covered and as a result of undertaking the course, I am now trained to DJ in nightclubs.

I am presentable, reliable and dedicated to providing the soundtrack to your event, whatever it may be. I will strive to accommodate any special requests you may require during your event.

I have Public Liability insurance, have legally purchased all my music to ensure top quality tracks, own all my equipment, which is industry standard, PAT tested and detailed below for your information :-
