Questions Top100 DJs 2013 - admin - 2015-06-30 17:18

“Melodic, big room house music.”

Best known for: 
'Tremble', various remixes.”
Tune of the year: 
“Calvin Harris feat Ellie Goulding 'I Need Your Love'.”
“With dance music blowing up worldwide, the fees are always going to go up as well. It's just the market.”
Have DJs' fees got out of hand?: 
“Some dance tracks do just as, or almost as well as pop tracks nowadays, and it’s very exciting to see dance music being embraced by so many people and getting so much radio play.”
Has dance music become the new pop?: 
“Probably a sloth. Life would be so relaxing and Kristen Bell would dig us…”
If you could be any animal, what would you be?: 
”Why not? And who cares really? For us, all that matters is that the crowd has the best time.”
Should DJs do "heart hands": 
“Education is the answer here and people need to be aware of the risks of drugs, which is an issue completely unrelated to dance music or DJs.”
Do DJs have a duty to speak out about drugs?: 
“A teleporting machine, a fully blown professional studio with SSL mixer and vocal booth, and a spa with a jacuzzi to top it all off!”

Even by the Top 100's standards, Vicetone's ascent has been pretty impressive. The young Dutch duo, comprising of twenty-somethings Ruben den Boer and Victor Pool, only started making music in early 2012 and played their first gig together only a few months back. As you'd imagine, they get pretty giddy when talking about it all.

“We played clubs like Pacha NYC, Space Ibiza, Ministry of Sound in London and New City Gas in Montreal,” they happily tell DJ Mag. “We also went on a bus tour with Nicky Romero through Canada and played pretty much all over the United States. 2013 marks our first year — and it’s been one hell of a ride so far.” You can say that again.
