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 personal achievements – we dig deep into the past 12 months and discuss future plans of some of our favourite emerging talents along with their exclusive Rave Exchange guest mix.
Highlight of 2019
Having an original release get into the top 20 Electro House chart on Beatport!
Happy memory from this summer
Tomorrowland wins without a doubt!
Happy memory from this winter
DJ’ing with Shy FX in front of 2,000 students all in lingerie (It was an underwear party!)
The most difficult thing you’ve done this year
Signed a contract for a big space to build a studio in! (It’s not cheap! Hence why it was difficult!)
This time last year you were…
Setting my goals ready for 2019 whilst DJ’ing nearly every night in December!
Your new year’s resolution this year
Get more support from bigger DJ’s and more tracks signed to bigger and more credible labels!
How long is it going to last?
I don’t quit, so the whole year.
Your musical goal for 2020
Get a track supported on the mainstage of a major festival.
A new skill or hobby you’d like to get into
I’d love to sing, but I don’t have the time to dedicate to it to make it worthwhile! So I think continuing to learn the Piano better will do for now!
Your favourite Christmas song
Fairytale Of New York
Your dream Christmas present
A studio session with Daft Punk
Favourite festive food
Your NYE plans
This is the first year I will NOT be working in 11 years, so I am throwing a house party!
Public figure of the year
Donald Trump! (NOT)
Movie/TV show of the year
Fighting with My Family, watched it only just the other night, but thought it was amazing and even more so that it was a true story!
Song of the year that you were involved with
My own release, Shakin
Song of the year that you were not involved with
Tiesto & SWACQ – Party Time
Artist or label to watch in 2020
I really think Retrovision is going to blow up next year!
Something you learned in 2019
Having a routine is massively beneficial to great productivity
A prediction about the world in 2020
Cryptocurrency will rise again and Bitcoin will enter a Bull market
