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

“Hardstyle/hard dance.”
Best known for: 
“Most euphoric melodies in the hardstyle scene.”
Tune of the year: 
“There’s no way of choosing just one.”
“DJ fees are different from scene to scene and how big of a name you’ve got in the scene you’re in. Being a DJ/producer isn’t a walk in the park, even though it may seem like the best lifestyle it can really fuck with your health if you’re not careful.”
Have DJs' fees got out of hand?: 
“You can see that both pop music and rock music isn’t what it used to be. You can also see that house has become the new ‘pop’ music. Hip-hop and pop artists doing vocals on ‘house’ beats.”
Has dance music become the new pop?: 
“An eagle, and fly to all the gigs.”
If you could be any animal, what would you be?: 
“It has become a way of showing your love back to your fans. We have no problem with this.”
Should DJs do "heart hands": 
“Drugs are everywhere, it is up to yourself as a human being to take it or not. Hate the fact that EDM music is considered to be the genre of drugs.”
Do DJs have a duty to speak out about drugs?: 
“Probably real penguinz on stage with us.”

2013 for Wasted Penguinz, much like 2012, has been all about smashing the hardstyle scene, performing across the globe in their trademark extra exuberant fashion. 
“We’ve been playing our gigs, and working on our album. It’s been pretty hectic. But it’s always fun when there’s a lot of stuff happening at once,” Pontuz and Jon tell DJ Mag whilst on some rare downtime in chilly Sweden.

Their gigs have doubled and most importantly they’ve been making an impact at bigger events: playing main stages. With this in mind what are their plans for next year? “Keep making music and enjoying the fact that we can live off what we love to do.”

And what about those voters of yours? “We love our fans, we consider ourselves to have some of the most dedicated fans within our scene and we want to keep it that way.”
