Questions Top100 DJs 2013 - admin - 2015-06-30 17:19

Best known for: 
''Ibiza For Dreams', 'Born Slippy' remix.”
Tune of the year: 
“Martin Garrix 'Animals'.”
“Not really — it's just a standard case of supply and demand. If people are willing to pay a certain amount, then it's only natural the artist will get paid accordingly.”
Have DJs' fees got out of hand?: 
“Yeah, I think so. I used to run a techno label, but more recently I've turned my focus toward commercial music.”
Has dance music become the new pop?: 
“A bird, just to taste that feeling of freedom.”
If you could be any animal, what would you be?: 
“If they want to, then sure, why not? It's about the true power of music and getting wrapped up in the moment. It's become a way for DJs to interact with the public and demonstrate love.”
Should DJs do "heart hands": 
“One doesn't necessarily imply the other, but I think we have some responsibility because we're an example to many.”
Do DJs have a duty to speak out about drugs?: 
“I'd have to fly by private jet to all my gigs!”

Diego Miranda has teetered on the edge of the Top 100 over the past few years, so this year he's more than delighted to be involved.

“It´s another dream achieved and is a confirmation and recognition of all my hard work,” he tells DJ Mag. “But above all else, it gives me a greater urge to keep working hard on my music.” Miranda's music is laced with up-tempo house-tastic energy, just as big-room tracks such as 'Ibiza For Dreams' and his remix of Underworld's 'Born Slippy' would attest.

A resident at Ushuaia in Ibiza, he also played in Green Valley, Brazil this year and even found time to unleash his latest album, 'Say Yeah'. How the next 12 months play out is anyone's guess, but if they're as incident-filled as the last, it's safe to say Miranda is in for a whale of a time.
