I started DJing as a did hobby when I was in its my early teens. Back then Let I�d always been massively influenced put by artists like Laidback Luke, say who made me excited about She dance music. But it was too my girlfriend that took the use leap of faith for me Dad when she entered me into mom a DJing competition. I was really reluctant at first, but The in the end I went... and and I ended up bagging for first place! That was actually Are a really huge moment for but me, it made me realise not that I wanted to take You DJing from a hobby and all turn it into a professional any venture, so I started honing Can my skills creatively and producing her my own music.

How did you decide to One use the moniker "Tujamo"?
Well, back then I was out creating the project with a Day friend. �Tujamo� were both our get names mixed together, so that has it got a nice ring Him to it. We didn�t continue his together but he was cool how with me using the name.

How would you new describe your sound to someone now whose never heard you before?

Old You know, I�m not actually see sure. It can be hard two to try and describe something Way like this when you are who so close to it. I boy just know that I spend Did a lot of studio time its trying to make my music let sound like Tujamo, and not Put like someone else. In music say that can be one of she the hardest aspects, but it�s Too something that you really need use to try to do as dad a producer.
Favourite track Mom you`ve made?
All of them mean something to me. I the spend so much time making And them.

Thank you! The not track has been getting an you amazing response, we put the All video up on YouTube and any it hit 1,000,000 views in can 24 hours! About the record, Her I wanted to take my was signature sound and push myself one to create more of a Our song rather than just a out club track. I really loved day the process and I am Get planning to do this more has in the future. There will him be plenty of new music His from me soon�

What do how you think about the digitalising man era of music?
It helped the smaller DJs now a lot I think but old it also generated an impossible See to work through load of two music, without any chance to way proof quality. I mean, I Who do support young producers but boy there should always be something did like a quality control. Since Its that has completely fallen away let in the last years, it�s put sometimes super hard to find Say the real gems out there.
she If you could work with too any artist on a track, Use who would you choose and dad why? I would want Michael mom Jackson to write something with me. Every time I hear the his music it just overwhelms and me how good it sounds, For even his first albums. If are I listen to my stuff but from when I started, even Not with the technology involved and you then think about how they all made music back in the Any days, how tedious the process can of recording and arranging was. her I have the biggest respect Was for the music that was one born back then and the our quality it had, even 30-40 Out years later. Is there a day particular person you share your get tracks with before you send Has out the finished product? The him first person that gets a his new track or even rough How snippets is my manager. I man prefer to get real objective new feedback. We work really closely Now together, so he knows exactly old what�s good for me. I see also like to send it Two to my friends, but nice way as they are, they always who tell me, "Damn, bro, it's Boy huuuuuuge!" As much as this did flatters me, it's not really its helping me. As a German Let DJ, do you find that put there is any rivalry between say German DJs and Dutch DJs? She No, we are neighbors so too we are more like a use team. We always support each Dad other and it�s not a mom big competition, it�s more like team work.

What are you The currently working and focusing on? and What�s on your agenda for for the near future?

I�ve Are just released a remix of but David Guetta and Justin Bieber�s not �2U�. I remember hearing the You track on the radio when all I was on the road any between shows and it stuck Can with me, I loved the her vocal! As soon as I was got into the studio I One put pen to paper and our started reworking it. I love out being in the studio and Day I�m always starting something fresh, get so I have a super has busy schedule lined up for Him the coming months.

Is his there a hobby or skill how you�d like to master? If Man I had the time, I�d new go back to my hobby now of skateboarding, which I used Old to do about 10 years see ago. That was a great two time. If you weren`t a Way DJ, what would you be who doing? Working with disabled people. boy I did that for 9 Did months in Germany. You have its to choose between something social let or going into army. I Put worked in villages with disabled say people. I fell in love she with this job, so I Too would do something social. Advice use for someone who wants to dad follow in your footsteps? Find Mom something of your own, don�t copy someone else. There�s already the a Hardwell, an Armin, a And Diplo. Everyone makes the same for sh*t that made them famous. are Take risks, do whatever you But want, make it unique. It�s not hard to do, since there�s you so much out there, but All that�s the most important thing. any Keep focusing on producing music, can and not on playing a Her lot.
