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

Best known for: 
“Being a wild motherfucker! And probably my cap...”
Tune of the year: 
“Zatox & Villain 'Action'.”
“Of all the things happening in the world right now, somebody else's DJ fees are the last thing on my mind.”
Have DJs' fees got out of hand?: 
"Dance music has definitely become more popular recently, I don't think anyone can doubt that... but as long as I'm not hearing my tracks played at the kindergarten, then I would have to say no.”
Has dance music become the new pop?: 
"One that would survive in the Wild Wild West would suit me just fine.”
If you could be any animal, what would you be?: 
“Hmmm... they should do 'Z' hands instead.”
Should DJs do "heart hands": 
“It's a tragedy to see young kids get hurt and even sometimes die because of drug and alcohol abuse. I hope that one day this will be a thing of the past. I say this not as a DJ, but as a human being and as a father.”
Do DJs have a duty to speak out about drugs?: 
“Extra time to play. And eternal sunshine.”

He might have entered the Top 100 again and spent the last 12 months racking up countless air-miles across the globe, but the most significant moment for Zatox over the past year was when he became a father — the proverbial cherry on top for the much-revered Italian DJ.

“Besides that,” he says, “I also launched my new imprint Unite, a record label and a platform for upcoming artists. And of course there's been many great gigs with amazing crowds, from Italy to Chile to Australia. I've just arrived home from my North American tour where I played at TomorrowWorld which was incredible too.

And to think... 2013 isn't even over yet!” So what else has he in store then? “A lot of Italian power! Expect great things coming from Unite too... the future is exciting!” You heard it here first...
