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
I had a to-do list and I actually did most of it. From last year I focused a lot on my mental health too.
Happy memory from this summer
It was a visit to my hometown, after a very long break, as I travel a lot.
Happy memory from this winter
In the UAE, winter is not the same as you know it, but I love the temperature here in the winter. I couldn’t imagine being in a cold place for the winter anymore!
The most difficult thing you’ve done this year
Changing my lifestyle, priorities, and a mature look at reality as an artist.
This time last year you were…
In LA. It was amazing!
Your new year’s resolution this year
As I said, keeping mental health on the same level and more sport and gym.
How long is it going to last?
The whole year I suppose!
Your musical goal for 2020
I would like to be involved in music festivals. It would be such a great opportunity to play one.
A new skill or hobby you’d like to get into
I’d like to learn Spanish.
Your favourite Christmas song
Wham! – Last Christmas
Your dream Christmas present
Dinner with family. I miss those days.
Favourite festive food
On first thought, I would say fish soup, but I guess there is more that I would love to try.
Your NYE plans
I will play at Alici, Bluewaters in Dubai

what you love
A prediction about the world in 2020
It’s a political question and I am not really involved and up-to-date with world situations. I’m going to try and be more in touch next year.
And lastly, sum up your 2019 in 3 words
Power, passion, perseverance
