Two turntables and a microphone (updated)

p>Update: The show in Houston is this Friday at the House of Blues. Admission is FREE before 11p.m.***

My friend Raj emailed me this morning with the ridiculous news that he is bringing BBC Radio’s DJ Kayper (*swoon*) here to the House of Blues in Houston next weekend (I missed her when she was in Austin for SXSW). After I got up off the floor from fainting I decided to post about it on SM. 25 year old Kayper, whose real name is Kaajal Bakrania, is impossible not to gawk at. She’s got skills.

Since 17 May 2006 she has presented the new show “The Hype Show” on the BBC Asian Network every Wednesday from 22:00 to 01:00. The show has now been renamed as “DJ Kayper”.

Hailed as one of the finest DJ’s pioneering new music today, British born DJ Kayper is a seminal force on the urban, mainstream and desi music scenes. Having been approached to host a mainstream radio show for the BBC’s Asian Network in 2006, the “DJ Kayper” show has now gone on to become one of the stations biggest exports with global listenership. The show has attracted no less than the biggest and best urban and pop music guests namely Common, Questlove, Lupe Fiasco, Nelly Furtado, Xzibit, Kelly Rowland, Omarion, Wyclef, Will.I.Am and The Game in addition to UK artists such as Estelle, Sway, Kano and Jay Sean.

You have to give props to a DJ that respects her elders.

  1. When I don’t look at the turn tables it looks like she is making chapati really fast. Now that makes me swoon, I have more nerve endings in my stomach than in my ears

  2. I just checked the House of Blues site and I couldn’t find her name anywhere. Is anyone else going?

  3. I can post it in the comments when it is on the House of Blues site (I’ll check with my friend). I plan on being there also.

  11. This goes under the very thick file: Men Will Watch an Attractive Female do Anything

    Laundry, mopping floors, dusting, counters, making chapatis, wrestling, the obvious unmentionables, etc. This is especially true when the said males are between 13-22.

  12. sarada, depends what you find attractive, confident strong women will always and forever be more appealing.
