DJ Durano follows his star

IN THE early 90s, DJ Durano packed his bags and left for the United States. He was going to make a short trip to visit his mother, but the more important reason was that he needed time to figure out what he really wanted to do with his life.

At the time, DJ was just starting out with his showbiz career. He had done bit roles in a couple of movies for Regal Films—among them Wanted Bata Batuta and Korona Ng Birhen—and was part of the Wednesday group on the youth-oriented show That’s Entertainment, but he couldn’t shake the nagging feeling that he should be doing something else.

What he really wanted to do was make music. “I really wanted to sing,” he says. He thought he needed time to decide, so he took some time off and left for the US. After three months of serious “soul-searching”, he came back and pursued his music for a while. He joined two bands, Next Level and Muzikjive and did the rounds of Manila’s live entertainment circuit, performing at places like the Hard Rock Café.
