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
I’ve been travelling around all of south-east Asia for 6 months, it was an insane experience! One of my dreams came true this year.
Happy memory from this summer
After being away in Australia for almost 2 years I’ve spent the entire summer in Italy with my family and wife, the happiest of times!
Happy memory from this winter
Spent Christmas with my family and my girlfriend’s family in Poland, got to learn the incredible Polish tradition of Christmas. Beautiful views, loads of snow, thermal parks, amazing memories.
The most difficult thing you’ve done this year
I moved from Australia to England then moved to Italy then to Holland. Loads of moving basically!
This time last year you were…
In Australia spending Christmas by the beach.
Your new year’s resolution this year:
Exercise more, make a hit, travel.
How long is it going to last?
12 months until I get skinny and rich! Hahahaha
Your musical goal for 2020
Release as many cool tracks as I can! And hopefully, catch the attention of some top DJs to collaborate with in the future.
A new skill or hobby you’d like to get into:
I’d love to learn how to edit photos and videos
Your favourite Christmas song:
Wham – Last Christmas
Your dream Christmas present
What I had this year! Family together and being around so much love and happiness! This is the best present you could ever have.
Favourite festive food:
I really like to eat! I absolutely love Polish food!
Your NYE plans:
I will be partying hard in Amsterdam with my love and friends from England.
Public figure of the year
Dwayne Johnson and Elon Musk
Movie/TV show of the year:
The top movie would have to be the “Irish Man” and series I would have to say “How to get away with murder”
Song of the year that you were involved with
My song- Golden Cage. I had great feedback, not a song of the year but I’m sure proud of it.
Artist or label to watch in 2020
Dirtybird and Black Book Records
Something you learned in 2019
To appreciate every moment in my life as time goes by too fast and that I need to travel more, explore the world.
Music-wise, I’ve learned how to get a powerful mix for my songs… thanks to my best friend Luke Silver who taught me so many powerful secrets.
A prediction about the world in 2020:
Human population growth impacts global warming.
And lastly, sum up your 2019 in 3 words:
Travel, practice, learn.
