Decks appeal

The stunning Dj Metzker Viktoria pops into Karma Kafe tomorrow night, where the Budapest-born former model/dancer is sure to attract some new admirers.

As a cover girl and Miss Hungary contestant, Metzker’s love of music always took a back seat, as she jet-setted around Europe for fashion shoots.

But after being taught how to spin by one of Hungary’s top DJs, she became a resident radio host in Budapest, while performing to more than 3,000 clubbers a week at the city’s Saturday Club and travelling the globe showcasing her new skills.

This year Metzker released her new single So Amazing, with vocals from Mitch Crown (voice of Fedde Le Grand’s Put Your Hands Up For Detroit). She has also compiled and mixed the new Ibiza World Club Tour CD Compilation Vol. 2.

For lounge and table reservations for Karma Kafe, situated in Souk Al Bahar, call 04 423 0909.
