DJ Hectikby Jenna Romano | 13.07.16
Maor Anava, aka DJ Hectik, has surprising humble musical beginnings. The first instrument he mastered was the trombone; and his premiere as a DJ was not long after his 4 year army service, when a sergeant requested that he DJ at a small party in a kibbutz bar.
The sergeant that hired Maor spotted his talent, and in lieu of pay purchased DJ Hectik’s first set of equipment (thank you, Mr. Sergeant!).
Now DJ Hectik is a household name in the Tel Avivian nightlife scene.
Hectik’s natural talent opened the door for him in this industry, but it’s his performance that keeps him in the room. DJ Hectik honors his musical selection–an encyclopedia of tunes from African beats, to rap, to dark rock to Mizrachi and progressive electronic beats.
