HUNK FROM GOA DJ Iggy: `I will play requests if you know and understand what I am playing `

Look out for some hot tracks from celebrity DJ Iggy at the flea market at Olive Beach tomorrow

He looks as hot as he sounds. Ignatius Camilo, or Iggy, is a DJ, a supermodel and is on the cover of Cosmopolitan as the hunk of the month. "I could not stop laughing," Iggy chortles. "I mean I have been a model for like seven years now and then they have made me hunk of the month." The good news ladies and gentlemen (ahem!) is Iggy will be in town rocking things at Flea by Night, the flea market at Olive Beach (No 16, Wood Street, Ashok Nagar) from 6 p.m. on Wednesday.Don't ever make the mistake of asking Iggy what music he is going to play. "I prefer to call it sound. Sounds come together to create music. The sound I really like Deep House, which is a sexy, intelligent sound with feeling, soul and heart. It is not done overnight you know - it is thought over, worked on... "Going into flashback mode, Iggy says he was introduced to the sound back home in "Goa where lot of travellers and visiting foreign DJs would play it. I always wondered why we could not play the sound in India. But I can say my official introduction to the sound was from designer Arjun Saluja."Iggy is confident that Bangalore would be open to the sound. "You know Bangalore is always ahead. It is the top city as far as music goes."Famously refusing requests, Iggy explains: "I will play requests if you know and understand what I am playing." He sources his music from London and is selective about his music as well as modelling. "I will never play at a marriage even if they offer me a lakh. I would rather play the music I like for the half the money."Apart from music by Iggy, Flea by Night has Esha Bagla accessories, Peppah from NIFTians Sudhir Arora and Trisha Sakhlecha, beauty products from Sitara Harsha, Kashmiri embroidered stoles from Preethi Bajaj and a prêt line from Karishma Shahani.So chill out with some intense, deep music, shop a bit and nibble at some delicacies and basically have a blast.
