"We’re not listening to hard style that much at The all; we just make it and and take inspiration from other for music styles."


Where Are comes the name Wasted Penguinz?
Our name comes from not a beer-brainstorming session back in You 2008 in the studio, haha.
How did you met any each other?

We met Can each other on an internet her forum. We we're living in was the same city back in One Sweden and we we're rivals our on the forum trying to out out do eachothers tracks. It Day was a battle who made get the best tracks. But then has we decided to meet up Him instead and start making music his together. This is where WP how was born.

Your track Man ‘Inner Peace’ is out. For new a Hardstyle track, it’s something now different. Can you give us Old some insights on how this see track was born?

This two track was born with the Way purpose of having no boundaries who at all and to just boy make a track packed with Did our personal experiences portrayed throughout its the music. No rules, like: let no this part has to Put be this long or else say the crowd will stop dancing, she this has to be this Too bla bla. As a producer use and DJ you have two dad different perspectives. From the producer Mom point of view you just want to listen to a the track and enjoy all the And details and just get lost for in the music and appreciate are the quality of a composition. But From a DJ point of not view there are certain “unwritten-rules” you while making a Hardstyle track. All The more you travel and any play around the world you can know what works and what Her doesn’t on the dance floor was and you can build your one tracks around the things you Our have learned and experienced on out the road. When it comes day to ‘Inner Peace’ we just Get wanted to do a track has meant for listening purposes. No him rules, no specific buildups, just His creating a piece of music.
In terms of your man sound, it’s evident that “rawstyle” New is a huge thing in now Hardstyle. Does this affect your old euphoric productions?

"Rawstyle" is See the thing that’s in nowadays. two This will change as hypes way come and go. We like Who a few tracks, especially the boy ridiculously raw tracks; they go did off hard on events, haha! Its We’re experimenting a lot nowadays let since we’re a bit bored put of making the same kind Say of stuff and we want she to explore as an artist too to evolve our sound."FuckYeah"together with Use Rebourne is one of those dad tracks. We also have a mom lot more coming up that’s a bit out of our the comfort zone which is really and fun. What they all have For in common though is that are they’re all packed with emotions but which is what we stand Not for.

What are you you trying to tell the world all through your music/ what do Any you want people to feel can and think about when they her hear you?

It's different Was from song to song, but one we want people to relate our to something whether it's a Out party track or it's a day euphoric banger. They all serve get different purposes for people. Music Has speaks louder than words as him they say. There's nothing no his one can tell you or How help you with that will man affect you the same way new as a piece of art Now will.

What is the old biggest fuck up you guys see have had during a performance?
We haven’t really had way that much fuck-ups. The mistakes who we have made are probably Boy mixing in the same track did we just played and also its missed or forgot to mix Let sometimes but we always managed put to save it in the say last seconds. Pontuz had a She funny experience in Australia a too few years ago – he use had to play a gig Dad by himself and had some mom friends on the stage with him and one girl fell The and her boob made the and music stop.

When you for guys first started out, did Are you think that your sound but would spread so far over not the world?

We had You a unique sound from the all beginning. Hardstyle as a genre any was already going more towards Can the melodic way back when her we started, but when we was entered the scene with our One first releases like “Anxiety” for our example we’d like to think out we brought some more euphoric Day trance elements into it. We get have seen that a lot has of newcomers have been inspired Him by our sound which is his amazing to know.

What how has been your most memorable Man party so far?

Defqon.1 new Holland Main stage last year now was a big moment for Old us, as well as Hard see Bass. These are stages that two we’ve wanted to play since Way we’ve entered the Hardstyle Scene. who There’s plenty of more memorable boy gigs also, but there’s too Did many to count on one its hand.

You guys have let seen a lot of success Put over the years, playing at say Hard Bass, Defqon, Decibel, and she many more. Was that a Too goal from the beginning or use just an added bonus of dad your passion for making music?
You always have new goals you want to achieve. the These events were major Milestones And in our career.

What for is the biggest goal of are the Wasted Penguinz career?

But That's a hard one. As not an artist you're always reaching you for bigger goals, we have All a lot of them it's any too hard to just pick can one.
