XMAS Interview & Mix Series with Ken Bauer

With a long list of career accolades under his belt, in just this year alone Ken Bauer released some stand-out tunes such as ‘Lone’, ‘Until You Speak’ and ‘Making’. It’s not just his followers who are big fans of his productions as his music has been supported by the likes of Sander Van Doorn, Yves V, Quintino and Nicky Romero. We caught up with Ken Bauer to discuss how he spends his Christmas and to check out his exclusive guestmix.

What is your favourite thing about the Christmas period?

For me, Christmas is all about spreading love and being nice to people. I also like all the lights and decorations everywhere as well as being able to listen to Mariah Carey without needing to pretend I don’t.

How will you be spending your Christmas this year?

I will stay at home with my family. I will probably spend a lot of time doing nothing. Just watching TV and playing Video Games with my son.

What would be your dream Christmas present?

Getting a call from Austin Kramer asking me to host one of his playlists at Spotify.

Do you have a favourite Christmas song?

All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey.

If you could spend the holiday period anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I would go to Gran Canaria, Spain.

Do you have any unique family traditions at Christmas?

I have one tradition that I share with a lot of people in Sweden and that is that at 3 pm on Christmas Eve we watch a Disney special on TV. For some strange reason, it has become a big tradition to have a cup of coffee and cookies together with the family watching that Disney special every year.

What is your favourite Christmas film?

I have one tradition that might be more towards the New Year. Every year, during the new year’s day. The movie Ivanhoe is being broadcasted on National TV. I always watch it, I have probably seen it 20 times.

Which are your must-have festive foods?

TBH I actually hate traditional Swedish Christmas food. I rather have a pizza or other junk food. It is very childish of me but I can’t help it.

How do you usually spend your New Year’s Eve?

We normally either go to friends or have friends over. Doing a barbeque even though it might be snowing. This year we will be celebrating privately due to the current situation.

Finally, do you have any new year’s resolutions for 2021 and do you think you will stick to them?

I will try to lose some weight, start doing more exercises. And stop eating so much candy and snacks. Unfortunately, this is the same new year resolution I have made for the last couple of years. So I would say No. I probably won’t stick to them.
