|7M| How long have you been playing music? Where did it all start?
I bought my first vinyl when I was 15 years old. I started djing at small parties which evolved to playing in bars, clubs and from there, my career took off.
|7M| The track “CloudBreaker” thrust you into the limelight, how did that feel? What importance does that track hold for you?
Cloudbreaker was a huge leap forward and I got a lot of attention because of it. So it’s a very special track for me. I think it’s a unique track with an emotional break, which I still like very much.
|7M| How long did it take you to create “CloudBreaker”?
I worked together with Basto on this track and it came together really quickly, which was good. After a few times in the studio we were done. It all came very naturally which is good and because of this it was quite a quick project to complete.
|7M| Who would you like to work with in the future?
There are so many talented producers around at the momement who are really pushing the scene forwards. Id like to work with more live vocalists as well.
|7M| Can we call Trance your favorite dance music style? What is it you love so much about the genre?
No, actually I like all different kind of music. I think it is important to think out of the box and mix and match different styles. When I was younger I used to be a really locked into one genre, but my tastes diversified as I grew older.
|7M| You take part in many events, play in different clubs and festivals all over the world. What is the best event in your opinion?
Of course it is easy to say Tomorrowland, because it really is amazing, but I also enjoyed playing at so many other great events like Guaba beach club Cyprus, Green valley Brasil etc. There is so much diversity and every club and festival is trying to do something a little different which is why the scene is so strong right now. For the 10th anniversary they did something special. There are 5 different DJ’s who all made a short mix: Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas &Like Mike, Armin van Buuren, Afrojack and myself. It was a great opportunity to premier some of my new tracks.
|7M| Where is it possible to see you in the near future?
In the next few weeks I’ll be in Spain, Albania, Italy, Brazil, Malaysia and South-Africa. Unfortunately no conformed dates in Russia yet… but hopefully in the future.
|7M| What do you like doing besides music?
I really enjoy good food, nice wine and hanging out my friends and family
|7M| What does your family think of your hobby? Who supports and helps you?
My family is really proud of me and has supported me throughout my career. Of course they regret that they don’t get to see me that much, but they understand.
|7M| What features does a DJ need to succeed?
I think you need to have a good combination of being able to give an amazing live performance and produce great tracks.
