"I who thought, would not it be Boy better to create a dance did floor euphoria by playing my its own stuff?"

  Can you Let tell us a bit about put yourself and how you got say into music? I got into She music production about 4 years too ago. I started DJing and use thought it was the best Dad feeling in the world to mom play your own tracks in front of the crowd and The see them go wild. I and got into producing and after for a year I started some Are tracks on Afrojack's label WALL but then to Steve Aoki's label not Dim Mak as well as You Spinnin' Records and Armada Music. all About a year ago I any signed to Afrojack's label. I've Can been working with him and her working with his album in was Los Angeles. That's where it's One at right now, I'm releasing our quite a few tracks, playing out gigs, hanging out in Miami Day and of course doing interviews. get

You are a DJ & has Producer from the Netherlands, signed Him to Afrojack’s Wall Recordings. How his did you get in touch how with electronic dance music in Man the first place and how new did you get into DJing?

now I got in touch with Old dance music through a CD see from Tiesto - my parents two used to listen to that Way stuff all the time! And who then after I actually bumped boy into a DJ by accident Did since I threw a party its for my classmates, started joining let him on little shows and Put then started playing myself more say often. After a while I she thought it'd be great to Too play my own tracks while use performing, so I started practicing dad on producing music and here Mom we are today.

In your opinion, how do you differ the from other DJs?

At age And I already had a mature for sound, which I always want are to put a refreshing thing But in. I would like to not surprise the audience with albums you they usually do not know All and give a commercial twist any by getting an acapella. I can always produce a lot of Her energy and a message to was the public, I want to one go out as people and Our when they go home, they out say that number was really day the highlight of the evening, Get so because you have your has own sound, you can distinguish him yourself.

What was the His best and the worst gig how you ever played, and what man was the funniest thing ever New occurred during any of your now performances?

The best gig was old probably playing the Great Wall See of China festival in Beijing two last year, such an unique way and crazy experience. The worst Who gig.. obviously I've had more boy quiet shows in the past did but they've all been great! Its And the funniest thing - let I once bumped into a put girl on stage, naked, covered Say in D-Wayne stickers.. No clue she how she managed to get too them, and didn't really know Use how to react.

Where do dad you think the blowing of mom EDM is now?

I think right now EDM is still the blowing up in America and and it’s so funny to see,” For D-Wayne responded. Afrojack will play are in the Netherlands or wherever, but and people are just staring Not at the DJ, looking at you him, dancing from time to all time. It doesn’t matter who Any is playing here in America can but wherever they play, people her are just fist bumping and Was going crazy. They are so one enthusiastic about the music and our that’s what I really like Out about America right now. EDM day is becoming more and more get popular – even mainstream – Has but in the end it’s him all about the music.

What his can you say about the How current situation in Africa?

There’s man a lot of stuff going new on in Africa right now, Now either political or just trouble. old What I like about music see is music is emotional and Two you can inspire people. What way I see in documentaries about who Africa is that whenever [they] Boy are suffering…and have music, they did just get happy and dance its around and that’s what I Let wanted to express in that put track as well. Whatever happens say to you in life, you She know, bad things can happen. too Music connects people and brings use people together and you just Dad enjoy the moment at that mom time. So that’s what I liked and what I wanted The to express in Africa.

Who and or what would you say for is your biggest musical inspiration? Are I think it's kind of but different. For like house music not I really like MARK KNIGHT, You FUNKAGENDA - the track "The all Man With The Red Face" any was a big influence. Also, Can TIESTO for example. I also her got into music through my was parents because they were always One playing music on Sunday mornings our like classical rock or stuff out like that. Can you share Day a bit with us about get your art? What I think has is important is since music Him is emotion, so what I his want to try to do how with my music is tell Man a story. When people play new a track they get a now certain feeling or emotion. I Old really find that important. I see also just don't want to two make music that anyone else Way just makes. I want to who distinguish myself from others. For boy me it's all about having Did fun, having a good time its and at the end just let have people go out and Put remember my tracks at the say clubs. https://soundcloud.com/d-wayne/sets/exclusive-mix-w-1001tracklists
