THE BIG THREE QUESTIONS:
You’re probably the youngest DJ to break into the global A-List of dance music. How does it feel to have made such a big impact at such a young age?
It’s been an amazing ride so far. I have had the chance to meet with so many people already, that were my idols for so many years. There’s really no real word to explain how this has affected me other than giving me a lot of strength and energy to continue with what I love to do. I don’t really see myself as someone who has made an impact. I just love to do what I do and it’s a great feeling to see so many people support me on this journey.
You played at Ministry of Sound after your show with Tiesto and Calvin Harris at Earl’s Court last year, what do you think of the venue? And how do club shows differ from the arena events you play?
Oh my, it’s an insane venue. The people are always so energetic, actually every single one of them is like me on stage. With that in mind, I always love to go to Ministry and I never get disappointed. The club definitely has a unique vibe for it, something you don’t find very often. It’s always difficult to explain what exactly make the nights at Ministry so special. I feel it’s the dedication of the crowd and their unstoppable support for anyone who enters the booth. That makes me as an artist really proud to play there.
You can teleport anywhere on earth for a couple of hours of playtime – are you wakeboarding in Hawaii, skateboarding in New York or snowboarding in the Alps?
Definitely wakeboarding on Hawaii!
