Best known for:
Tune of the year:
Gaia - In Principio
Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2015:
Alex Di Stefano - Even though he's been around for a long time, this past year I've really been into his stuff. A great blend of Techno and Trance.
What’s the most important skill a DJ should have?:
To be able to read a crowd and adapt his set accordingly.
Is the future still bright for EDM?:
For Electronic Dance Music as a whole, Yes.
Does the constant travelling and DJ lifestyle ever take its toll on you mentally?:
Yes! It's really exhausting and takes a huge toll on me both mentally and physically, but I wouldn't change a thing. I absolutely love what I do, and feel so blessed to be able to do what I love every day.
What cause is closest to your heart?:
The Humane Society
Which club would you like to bring back from the dead?:
The Palace in Melbourne, Australia. It was an old cinema and just had such an epic atmosphere for Trance events. I miss that place so much.
Why aren’t there more women in the Top 100 DJs poll?:
No idea! Would love to see more ladies in the poll.
What do you think of DJs who use ghost producers?:
Each to their own, I don't focus on what other people are doing - I'd rather spend that energy and time making my own music.
