Tuff Questions is our series where we ask artists a selection of incredibly difficult questions.
Up next in the Tuff Questions hot seat is club regular, Martin Jensen.
Martin has headlined Ministry of Sound many times over the past few years and he always delivers a high octane performance. He's also a fixture on the UK Singles Charts, with huge collabs "Middle of the Night" with The Vamps and "Nobody" with James Arthur. His latest single, "Running Back To You" dropped in October and is looking to be another big release.
The Danish DJ/producer has remixed everyone from Katy Perry to Ed Sheeran, but if he had to wear only one colour for the rest of his life, what would it be?
