Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2015:
What’s the most important skill a DJ should have?:
Tune selection is key and also patience, you need to let the music breathe once in a while.
Is the future still bright for EDM?:
The past, present and future is always going to be bright for electronic music.
Does the constant travelling and DJ lifestyle ever take its toll on you mentally?:
Yes, which is fine, as long as you don't pretend that it doesn't. Ups and downs are part of being alive sometimes.
What cause is closest to your heart?:
Struggles in mental health at a young age. I think growing up can be pretty tough for some people, and support and positive reinforcement is key.
Which club would you like to bring back from the dead?:
The End Club in Holborn was a club I wish we could have had a Circus (Records) monthly residency at.
Why aren’t there more women in the Top 100 DJs poll?:
There are loads of amazing female DJs out there like Rezz, Krewella, Alice Wonderland, Nina Las Vegas or Anna Lunoe. I included Maya Jane Coles in my Flux100, as it was crazy to think she wasn’t in there before.
What do you think of DJs who use ghost producers?:
A DJ is different to a producer, so the fact that a person who is good at one thing asks another person who is good at another thing to do something doesn't surprise me.
