If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be: 
To change people's musical choices.
Should you play to the crowd or for yourself: 
Both! Stick to what you're known for, but find a good balance between the two.
What does EDM mean to you: 
A genre of music that this decade will be known for.
Should celebrities be DJs: 
We think that anybody who is looking for fame shouldn't be a DJ. We suggest doing something else to get fame and attention.
Have you ever been thrown off the decks: 
Not yet!
Are you a DJ if you don't beat match: 
Although there are far many more skills besides beat matching that a DJ should possess, beat matching is definitely part of an EDM DJ's job.
Where's the next dance music capital: 
Malta! However lately everyone is suggesting Vegas!

While a certain other island grabs all of the attention, Tenishia continue to put Malta on the dance music map. Having crashed into the Top 100 last year, Joven Grech and Cyprian Cassar's passionate Maltese and international fans have ensured they remain at dance music's top table.

Having originally been brought to international attention by Armin van Buuren, 2012 has been their best year yet. "This year was a big year for us, as we released our debut album 'Memory Of A Dream'," they say.

"It has been the busiest and hardest so far, but definitely the most rewarding. Another big highlight has been our first 'Tenishia In Concert', which took place here in Malta and attracted one percent of Malta's population!" And it's not just been a productive year career-wise. "A few weeks ago Joven had to rush to hospital in Australia, just minutes after finishing a set in Melbourne," they tell us. "None of us got hurt, but Joven's girlfriend gave birth to a baby boy, Mason. Joven made it just in time - straight from the decks to holding his newborn baby!"
