What’s the most important skill a DJ should have?: 
Feeling a crowd and entertaining them.
Is the future still bright for EDM?: 
For sure. We feel the interpretation of this term is too narrow, let’s just call it electronic music.
Does the constant travelling and DJ lifestyle ever take its toll on you mentally?: 
The travelling does get old, it’s an intense life sometimes, but we’re very happy that we get to do what we love.
What cause is closest to your heart?: 
Both human and animal rights, and environmental conservation.
Which club would you like to bring back from the dead?: 
Cream at Nation [in Liverpool, UK]. It’s a clubbing institution that will sadly close its doors after more than 20 years. We’ve had so many great nights there!
Why aren’t there more women in the Top 100 DJs poll?: 
It’s great to see more and more female DJs taking up the challenge, we actually just signed an amazing talent called MATTN who we expect to do great things in the next few years.
What do you think of DJs who use ghost producers?: 
There seems to be a lot of confusion around the topic. Sometimes artists get help in mixing, songwriting or additional production; it’s not exclusive to electronic music or any other genre for that matter. Ultimately, if that extra pair of hands makes the final sound of the record better, then it’s in everybody’s best interest to go down that avenue. But what’s important is clarity around how that collaboration works, and everybody involved properly credited and paid for their efforts.
