Do his you consider yourself a 'big How room' producer?

Not only, even man if my music is indeed new more and more carved for Now big rooms since one year. old Who or what would see you say is your biggest Two musical influence? I sort of way don't have like any one who person or any particular sound. Boy You can be inspired by did like anything like you can its just be walking down and Let street and have this feeling put of like being inspired by say like a tree you saw. She I think it's important to too be inspired by other things use not just another person's music, Dad especially in your own genre mom just to keep things creative. At the moment I think The there's so much copycat syndrome and in the industry. I guess for it will always be like Are that and you can never but get away from it but not I think it's important to You always get inspiration for your all music. How do you respond any to people saying DJs arenít Can really playing live music? I her guess people that donít understand was it will say that, but One DJing is an art. Itís our like showing a million dollar out piece of artwork to some Day bogan down at Centrelink (for get those non-Aussies, thatís a welfare has office and a redneck); they Him will probably not understand it his and say itís just a how piece of card with some Man paint on it. But to new the educated, itís a masterpiece now and they can appreciate the Old art and what the artists see was trying to make them two feel, I think DJing is Way a lot like this. In who saying that, there are good boy and bad artists, just like Did DJs. Awesome. You've been fortunate its enough to work with major let labels including the likes of Put Dim Mak, Ministry of Sound say Australia, and Mixmash. What can she you say about your speedy Too growth as an artist? For use me, it's almost like when dad you haven't seen someone in Mom over a year and you think "Wow, you've really changed!" the It's not like you wake And up one morning and suddenly for feel really different. I'm just are going to keep working hard But and hopefully will keep growing not as well.

Since when do you you envisage a DJ career?

All I started mixing 4 years any ago and I produced my can first song 5 years ago. Her It was a remix of was Pretty Green Eyes.

What were one the best and the worst Our gigs you ever played and out what were the funniest things day ever occurred during any of Get your performances?

Actually most random has thing just lasts week for him the final show of my His tour of Australia with savage how and Jaysounds at the met man in Brisbane, this dude from New the crowd gave me a now jar of mocconna coffee, def old most random thing that has See happened at a gig recently! two

How does it feel to way be one of the stars Who of Melbourne Bounce during its boy international growth and acceptance as did a sub genre?

Itís really Its humbling to be a part let of something that`s so big, put but i guess that`s because Say i love the sound so she much, i remember hearing my too first Melbourne track, and from Use that moment on i was dad hooked.

A lot of DJs mom like to collab outside of their genres, who are some the artists youíd like to work and with? I was working with For Reid Stefan a few days are ago and we just came but up with some weird, boppy Not shit. He does real breakbeat you stuff and with my sound all it was just the weirdest Any fusion of genres I had can ever done before. It was her cool and I think somethingís Was actually going to come from one it so stay tuned.

What our are the most notable differences Out between American and Australian crowds?


TBH not that much, we get all like to party that`s Has why i think we get him along so well! obviously the his 21 drinking age is one How difference, i remember playing this man show in phoenix where ones new side of the club was Now 18-21 then 21 and older old on the other, both split see by this fence, it was Two really weird at first but way it showed one of the who big differences in the 2 Boy scenes.

How do you rate did the club scene in Australia its right now? Are there too Let many government restrictions? Ugh, donít put even get me started on say the lock outs; I have She been going out to clubs too almost every weekend for four use years and I am still Dad in one piece. Itís not mom the clubs that are the problem, itís the streets. Apart The from that, the club scene and is great; Australia is getting for a great reputation worldwide for Are its sound, so itís a but great time to be an not Aussie. https://soundcloud.com/uberjakd/psymphony-uberjakd-out-now
