Name: Oli Hackett
Energetic, creative, intelligent
Give us an interesting fact about yourself: I’m a cinematographer, which I means I shoot and edit photo and video for a wide variety of individuals, organisations and events around Northamptonshire.
What is your favourite song of all time and why? My favourite song changes regularly, but at the moment it’s either Calvin Harris – Acceptable in the 80s or Yorktown from Hamilton. One song that I ALWAYS play when I’m doing a DJ set is ‘Light It Up’ by Major Lazer – it always fills a dance-floor!
Describe your ideal night out/in: A good night out for me is one where I end up behind the decks! I DJ most weekends, and love making people smile and dance.
A good night in would definitely be one with a takeaway, lots of chocolate and some old Holby City or Casualty episodes on the TV!
What do you love about Kettering? I don’t spend that much time in Kettering, so I love that there are always places that I haven’t discovered yet. When I am in Kettering though, I am most often in the Lighthouse Theatre watching (or performing in) a wide variety of shows. I also love that there are lots of very picturesque locations which, being a photographer, come in very handy!
What is your favourite part of being involved with Shire Sounds? My favourite thing about Shire Sounds is that it’s all about having fun and producing great radio. Everyone here has a passion for radio and wants the best for the station.
