It was in 2000 that homegrown Leon Perana emerged on the DJ circuit. Back to back gigs on the same nights kept Leon’s crate on quick shuffle and his demand for innovative grooves developed into a fiery passion for House music.
Tauranga’s club scene was next on the itinerary, warming up for hard hitters Soane (NZ),Dick J (NZ), Andy Vann (NZ) and internationals Inland Knights (UK) as resident at Buddha Lounge and Club Roma. Leon’s signature style paved a path for numerous radio guest appearances on Blowhole, BOP, The Studio and George FM while featuring at The Butter Factory in Whangarei and a Ministry of Sound showcase.

In 2010 Daara P was given his first opportunity as a fresh-faced, mid-week dj in a small Hamilton cocktail bar, Easy Tiger, mixing a funky collection of progressive and sexy vocal house tunes every Thursday night.
Guest spots on the then-established Fevah FM arose and opportunities to build his mixing style through the New Blood events at Monkey Feather were sandwiched in between gigs as a fast and eye-opening introduction into the DJ scene.
Over a short space of time, the mid-week opportunities eventually turned into Friday nights, then Saturday nights, and as he grew his arsenal of tracks and experience with each outing, he was able to broaden his connections and audience picking up regular weekend gigs throughout Hamilton’s large selection of various bars, from Grand Central, Altitude and House bar to The Back Bar and Static. Before long, Daara P was heating up the d-floor at Suitcase bar in Ohakune during the winter, bringing those summer vibes to Sugar Night Club in Gisborne.
Regular weekly Wednesday night slots on Noize Radio added extra strings to his bow, giving streamers and tuned-in listeners a taste of what to expect on any given weekend.

A generous seafood platter and a box of purple goannas shared with local legends Sean Murray and Ash Gee landed Daara P more opportunities within the local house music scene and social circuits. You will find Daara P bringing those house music vibes most weekends either for Paradisco at Miss Gees and across many other bars in the Mount.
