“Depends, people think that all the fee goes straight to the DJ, but really there are many entities like agents, managers, PR agents and taxes to be paid.”

After the success of their debut album 'Memory of a Dream' last year, Maltese trance duo Tenishia flipped their aesthetic coin and in 2013 released 'Frozen Roads 2'.

“It was our first chill-out album,” report the duo of Joven Grech and Cyprian Cassar. “It started as a side project in order to reach an audience out of the EDM field. It is a collection of our own original tracks updated into downtempo and chill-out versions.”

Their own tracks this year have included the boisterous beats and subdued trance stylings of ‘Jaguar’ and surging bass drills of ‘As We Speak’, whilst the immediate future will see the pair collaborate with Jonathan Mendelsohn on another new single.

As well as reporting an increasingly essential scene in their homeland of Malta — where the likes of Creamfields already plays out annually — they cite gigs in “Singapore, Ibiza and a debut sell-out in Argentina” as some of their fondest memories of 2013, but we’re sure 2014 will be just as fruitful.
