Deadmau5 and SBTRKT aren't the only ones to rock the masked DJ look - house producer Mike Candys and his signature smiley mask have been doing pretty well for themselves during 2012, completing over 200 shows across Europe, alongside a lot of writing, producing and remixing, as well as running his Wombatmusic label. So, has it been a successful year for Candys? You bet it has. "Definitely!" he confirms.
"My tracks achieved several platinum and gold awards in different European countries, and I played at so many great clubs and festivals. 2012 was awesome." As for his favourite moments of the year, how about "the No.1 chart position on iTunes Germany, and a gig in France at the beach with 30,000 people"? That'll do nicely.
