“[It has been] 9yrs of clicking the faders from my mixer to your Televisions and gadgets!” This a line from DJ MOD’s caption on his Instagram post, in celebration of It’s Showtime’s ninth anniversary.
Being in the show since it first aired, DJ MOD is indeed a vital cog on the noontime show being the spinner who plays the catchy music or fitting sound effects we hear on cue. But more than all the hard work and contributions to the show, who is DJ MOD anyway?
As per how he described himself on his own Instagram account, DJ MOD is music artist, DJ, producer, composer, sound designer and a brand ambassador for well-known local and international clothing lines. He is Noel Macanaya in real life, and the initials on his screenname DJ MOD means that he is the “Master Of Disaster”.
He was part of the Pinoy hip-hop act called ‘Mastaplann’. After that, he did a solo DJ venture and worked to become a pop, R&B and hip-hop album producer.
Noel has two sons namely Darren and Casio, who he said in a digital newspaper interview are his “songwriting partners… contributing 50 percent to the work”. He had several collaborations with his sons, including the song ‘Rain On Me’.
Certainly, It’s Showtime would never be the same without DJ MOD playing those funny sound effects and the energizing music that make us party even at the middle of the day.
Since he is not always in front of the camera, let us now take a closer look at him in these photos!
