What’s been your biggest tune, (not one or your’s!), of the Summer so far?
Well, hard question to start an interview...
There are many vocal tracks of the last months from the swedish side that are still working a lot and also instrumentals like "Tung" that, in my opinion, gets the best reaction on the dancefloor. That’s what I've seen in the last months. For me Deadmau5 - The Veldt is the best song of the last period, not too commercial, not banal, not too club.
Describe your DJ moves in the booth? Are you more of a head down and concentrate DJ? Or more of a fist pump kinda guy?
I’ve been making music since I was a kid and I always enjoyed what I do, in every situation. Imagine that I do mastering sessions in my studio jumping and feeling the track like I'm playing it in front of thousands people that go bananas.
I think that there are few moments in which you have to be concentrated , where there is you and your music, your feelings and your choices, selection and mixing ... the rest is like freestyle, an interaction between you and the dancefloor. You can’t be out of it. You are like a captain and everybody have the same goal : party.
Obviously it depends on the club, festival, party ... Every situation of your life influences your way to be.
We’ve all seen some pretty crazy things on certain DJ riders recently. What would you really like to put on yours haven’t got the nerve???
Well, some time ago I had many requests, like asking not to play more than a certain bpm, not to play some kind of music etc... Then I stopped asking this kind of things. I only hope that someone is picking me up and drop me off at the airport. Sometimes it’s like asking for a miracle! As far as concerns my tech rider, I ask for 3 cdjs and a mixer. If I find them I feel very lucky and it's enough for me. In most of the clubs I played in the last period, all the people told me that working with me is really easy and they told me that my set was amazing. If you have a vidiwall, I've got my logo, if you don't have... no problem at all. Nothing it's a must, the organization has to know better than the artist what can help to create a great night.
I think that people go crazy if you play what they like and if you have some really good skills to produce an original show...with nice music, mash-up, good selection, good vibes.
This is your first gig playing for Kinky Malinki, what can the Kinky faithful expect from your set?
Yes, it's the first time and I really hope it could be the beginning of a great collaboration. I'll bring all my positive vibes, energy, emotions and of course a lot of music. The party will be on the 1st of September so we can only imagine how cool it will be. And the only way to be cool is to be there and don’t miss it.
You’re playing at our London to Ibiza party. Can you tell us your favourite hotspots in both LDN and IBZ? It can be a favourite restaurant, shop, whatever.
I really don’t have any favourite hotspot in mind. I usually enjoy all the places I visit during my tours and I have to say that everything’s got something special for me.
It also depends on the mood…sometimes I need shopping and sometimes I need to rest. In both cases I like all the places I’m in it’s very simple.
…buti f I have to tell you what I love most in Ibiza is the atmosphere: sun, beach, music and parties.
London has a geat nightlife too but when I’m there I like enjoying multi-ethnic restaurants and the city that, in my opinion, has got something magic.
