dawood veera lunatics sri lanka party wedding dj

Dawood Veera better known as Lunatic Punk, uncovered a passion for DJ’ing at the age of 16. All he remembers was sitting in front of the laptop right after school thinking how to get a beat matched from one to another. While doing so, the teenager held off his first Pioneer CDJ 800. As Punk experimented with the new equipment, he started to play events on low budgets to gain experience on how events work. As his passion grew, he broke out to the public by playing his first event at Club “Clancy’s” and carried his passion to another level. As a 17 year old, He had the chance to play at several birthdays, college and cooperate events. This was when he met Kisal Hettiarachchi (Lunatic Xacto)

Kisal Hettiarachchi also known as Lunatic Xacto discovered the passion for music as a dancer. He was passionate about different types of dance techniques over the years, and discovered the art of beat matching at the age of 17 where he used to mix his songs for his personal dance events. For Xacto his passion for music grew by the day and made him enthusiastic to discover the solid technique of mixing songs. His first event was a birthday party at which he managed to keep up the groove all along and since then he knew that it was a definite YES to enter the DJ’ing industry. It was a spontaneous idea that Xacto & Punk wanted to meet up at parties and play together and at the same time was in search of a brand to get them going.

By pouring in their different styles and nurturing each other’s talent, they created a unique blend of music, a style of entertainment and a flavor of rhythm that is unmatched by any other DJ or Duo until this day in the paradise island.
