About DJ Didier

Didier was born and grew up in Paris. With his father being a saxophone Artist, Didier soon discovered the power of music and took charge of the dance-floor at an early age - both as a professional Dancer and DJ.

  • My wife Natalie and I met Didier when he mixed at the 50th birthday of her uncle (who knows the party scene in Cape Town very well). He got the big majority of the crowd dancing within seconds - and kept them dancing till the end. The same happened at our wedding in November 2016 (we booked him) which included a very diverse list of people. I never saw a DJ who reads a crowd as well as he does, not just playing song after song, but mixing them together very creatively. Trust him with the music, don`t give him too many "Must-Play-Songs" - he knows what he is doing. Didier is extremely professional, we met some weeks before for a coffee and he also set up music for the ceremony, speeches and canepes. And I hate to say it, but some ladies might have thought he looks more stylish then the groom ;) Thanks a million, Didier

  • We had guests from the US, from the UK, Germany and Italy, and as for my guests from South Africa, I was nervous with the idea of satisfying all of them musically.

    But DJ Didier made it all possible with such style and grace, it actually felt so great to see them dancing and mostly singing songs from their respective country and have us Cape Townians on our feet jumping on these songs too. I personally think that Didier really understood what we asked him and he also knows very quickly how to satisfy the audience on all levels, and keep them wanting even more. I would book him in a heartbeat if any occasion presents it self.

    What a great DJ!

  • Lucky for me I first saw and heard DJ Didier mixing on an event called The Grand White Dinner in Johannesburg mixing for a crowd of 7000 people and I was already blown away, as well as the audience, but of course since I asked his card, I knew a wedding is a different dynamic than a "Concert size" event.

    He seemed to be as equally comfortable and got us partying for much longer than what we originally planned, as my bride and I decided in a heartbeat to continue, It felt like the right thing to do. And we were right, still today all our guests even two year since that day, keep praising DJ Didier for the music he played on that day.

    I will recommend DJ Didier to any one who want to make her/his wedding the most memorable.

  • I was skeptical at first when I met DJ Didier, as I knew he is French, I thought it would be challenging for him to understand how we party in South Africa, but I was mistaken. He show some genius in the way he blended these amazing tunes to make all generations burn the Dance floor. His elegance was noticeable, as the way he was dressed, and he seemed to ne so in a total control of his art. I must say I can't thank him enough for making our wedding the best day of our lives.

    I know a few of our friends who since booked him for two more weddings and some birthdays, as we know that we cannot go wrong by having him as our DJ, no matter the occasion.

  • My wedding was fantastic and I owe it mostly to the great input of DJ Didier for the ceremony.

    He took the time to understand exactly what I wanted my husband to hear while I walked the aisle. I had the idea, and he made it real, He mixed and mashed some of the songs to make them sound like one and made it so unique, It actually touched everyone too.

    Now emotions were running high, but Pre-drinks were also memorable to all my guests who kept asking me about the DJ, and as a proud bride I explained who he is and what he can do, It made it even cooler when the reception was on, My father decided to carry on for two extra hours as he and I felt that he was worth the expense, and he delivered with a better set that we had in mind.

    You need a DJ? DJ Didier is your man!

  • I watched Dj Didier perform on the frenchSUNSET for a large audience and approached him for my wedding, I was skeptical at first when I met DJ Didier as I knew he is French, I thought it would be challenging for him to understand how we party in South Africa on weddings, but I was mistaken, he show some genius in the way he blended these amazing tunes to make all generations burn the Dance floor. His elegance was noticeable, as the way he was dressed, and his body language that showed him in a total control of his art. I must say I can't thank him enough for making our wedding the best day of our lives.

    I know a few of our friends who since booked him for two more weddings and some birthdays, as we know that we cannot go wrong by having him as our DJ, no matter the occasion.

  • DJ Didier kept the party going at our wedding well into the night. Loved the mix and the tempo of all the music. He's extremely professional and has a great sense of style that comes across favorably when entertaining a crowd. A small mishap with a power adaptor before the wedding started, but nothing that detracted from the essence of a wonderful day. I would recommend DJ Didier for my friends weddings.
