Levels
Tune of the year: 
Can I say 'Silhouettes'? Actually, I love playing everything by Swedish House Mafia and finding those different, hard club tracks that make you move
Breakthrough DJ/Producer of 2012: 
Otto Knows
If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be: 
Teleportation for sure, I spend far too much time travelling!
Should you play to the crowd or for yourself: 
Both. Obviously you need to please the crowd you're playing for, but your sets need to be a genuine reflection of your sound and overall taste as an artist.
What does EDM mean to you: 
EDM is a buzzword for dance music. It gets thrown around a lot, but I guess we need an umbrella term for it.
Should celebrities be DJs: 
Depends who you define a celebrity
Have you ever been thrown off the decks: 
No. I never perform drunk or too sick.
Are you a DJ if you don't beat match: 
Every DJ should be able to beat match, but who's to say what a DJ is in the public eye a few years from now? That's just the fundamental of what a DJ is to me, and will always be.
Where's the next dance music capital: 
Everywhere! In every city, home and heart of the fans. Cheesy I know - maybe I should start writing lyrics for R Kelly?
