Questions Top100 DJs 2013 - admin - 2015-06-30 17:17

“Electro house.”
Best known for: 
“Destroying pretty much every single dancefloor on the planet.”
Tune of the year: 
“'Rockin’ N’ Rollin’ gets it done!”
“It’s very easy to think DJs are making a lot of money, but it’s not just the DJ, it’s a whole team of people working to realise everything and it all needs to be paid just off the income of one person.”
Have DJs' fees got out of hand?: 
“It’s definitely got a bigger presence in the mainstream press than it did five years ago and the simple reason is that America finally embraced it on the radio.”
Has dance music become the new pop?: 
"I’d choose a platypus. It’s pretty rare, you only get them in Australia. It’s also a bit strange and it does its own thing. I feel strongly connected to those qualities.”
If you could be any animal, what would you be?: 
“Yes, I do, a lot! It’s all about the love!”
Should DJs do "heart hands": 
“Yeah I think so, I think anything that has an impact on the scene in such a big way needs to be at least discussed, the safety of the kids on the dancefloor is the most important thing, before anything else.”
Do DJs have a duty to speak out about drugs?: 
“A Playstation 4, a few drinks and coming a day early to the gig. I cannot tell you how much of a luxury an extra 24 hours to chill out before each gig [would be], it would be absolute bliss!”

"DJing is taking everyone on a journey, through sound, where you control the adventure, you control the vibe and flow and pace of the story, you’re the one that gets to pick where you all go next." Fedde Le Grand's view of his job is a traditional one and his continuing popularity proves that many dance fans around the world enjoy his particular brand of storytelling.

With 2013 being a year where he has been "super productive, I feel as if everything lined up this year to fall into place, where everything’s finally working the way I want it to", Fedde promises that he has so many new tracks to share that "it’s scary, 2014 is going to be absolutely full-on with the music".
