When did you get into DJing? What or who were your early passions and influences?
I actually started with producing music which then brought me into Djing. So I got into DJing quite late, around 4 years ago. My early passsion definitely was Tiesto. I remember watching videos of him performing in front of sold out stadiums. I just knew I had to try this on my own.
How do you find your inspiration?
I think most of my inspiration just comes from listening to all different kinds of music day in and out. I’m a huge fan of radio music too, cause I think in all the songs that get played on the radio there’s always some kind of formula in them that make them stand out from the rest and that make them accessible for a really bright audience.
Where are people most likely to see you perform?
Most likely they’ll see me perform here in Germany since this is one of my strongest markets to date but I’m working on playing also more international shows.
Do you have original music that is available online?
Sure, I have 3 original singles that I released with my home label Ultra Music.
What is one mistake you see a lot of up and coming DJs making?
I think one of the mistakes most up and coming Djs make is that they don’t listen the music from the audience kind of perspective. A track that works great for your buds party at home doesn’t necessarily also work great in a club environment.
If you could be eternally stuck in one year’s music scene, which year would it be?
I would say around 2010 when Progressive House was booming. I was a huge fan of Alesso and all the Swedish guys at this time.
What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you hear it?
I think Closer by The Chainsmokers is a track for me that never gets old. I just love the vibe and the duet of Halsey and Drew.
What is something that bugs you about the DJ scene?
I actually don’t have anything that bugs me really.
What do you try to communicate to the audience through your vibe?
I think my style always has been super melodic. That’s also what I want to communicate not only in my style of DJing but also in my productions.
Where would you most like to perform?
I would love to play at the Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival one day. I just remember watching the livestreams of these festivals every year and to finally play at one of these festivals would be an absolute dream for me!
What are your predictions for the music industry in the next five years?
Obviously streaming will play an even bigger role than it already does throughout the next years and I think it will be key for artists to be active on Spotify and Apple Music.
