To mark the end of 2019, The Rave Exchange is travelling the world to reflect on the year of a series of DJs and Producers from every corner of the planet. From summer memories to future goals – we dig deep into the past 12 months and discuss future plans of some of our favourite emerging talents and listen to their exclusive 2019 summary mix.
Highlight of 2019
One of our highlights this year was definitely the production of our music video clip for our song “OLDSCHOOL” on skink records. It was the first video we ever did and it was a funny experience for us.
Happy memory from this summer
Clambake: Entering the entrance gates of Tomorrowland, whoever you walk through the entrance and the hum of the bass is getting louder and louder. that was definitely one of my favourite moments in this summer.
Rav3era: For me is also the Tomorrowland in Belgium a really happy memory. It’s always something really special and absolutely amazing.
Happy memory from this winter
Friday before the holidays started. Finally, time for short nights and long studio sessions.
The most difficult thing you’ve done this year
We think something of the most difficult things is to excel the previous releases. To always be able to offer the fans something better
This time last year you were…
on the way to Australia to learning English.
Your new year’s resolution this year
We want to at least double our successes from 2019 in 2020, it will not be easy but we think setting the goals high is the right way to success
How long is it going to last?
The goal would be to reach it in the 3rd quarter. Or by late 2020
Your musical goal for 2020
We work actually hard on new music, our goal is to fix it on big label’s, do a big collab, or produce a big hit! And we want to reach 1 million streams on Spotify
A new skill or hobby you’d like to get into
We want to bring our producer skill to a higher level! If we find time for a new hobby, we will see what it is.
Your dream Christmas present
A manager contract with a manager who has the same goal as we are establishing the C&R project in the music industry
Favourite festive food
Fondue or Raclette both are swiss food speciality
Your NYE plans
No plans yet (we know Nye is around the corner) but it shows a lot that you spontaneously experience the best parties.
Movie/TV show of the year
Favourite movie of the year that’s an easy question for us definitely STAR WARS the rise of Skywalker
Song of the year that you were involved with
Clambake: For me definitely ‘Booty’ I like the vibe and the power of this song.
Rav3era: For me ‘Oldschool’, because I have a lot of funny memories on this track from the whole working process on this release.
Song of the year that you were not involved with
There are a lot of really crazy and amazing tracks released this year. So, it’s impossible to choose one.
Artist or label to watch in 2020
A long-awaited dream would be to release on Revealed Recordings. we will see what 2020 has for us.
Something you learned in 2019
It’s not easy to stand out among all the talent out there but it is important to always have your goal in mind and fight for it. Always stay on the ball and look for ideas that make you different from the rest
A prediction about the world in 2020
They say a new music label will come!
