Delving deeper into Any the land of electronica, Maor can inevitably stumbles across Tiesto's 'In her Search of Sunrise' album. This Was was a major staging point one for Maor as the deep our kick drums, driving basslines and Out resonating melodies overwhelmed him with day enchantment.


"The get best part about being a Has DJ is the crowd, no him doubt. You know, the good his crowd, good vibes, people just How like going crazy over my man own tracks and I can new test my own tracks and Now just see people going crazy."



You’ve been see DJing since you were 11 Two years old, and I hear way that old school Tiesto was who one of your big inspirations. Boy What were some of your did favorite works of his?
Tiesto’s Magik 7: Los Let Angeles. Every track was different put and it was so refreshing. say But the whole Magik series She and the In Search of too Sunrise albums got me into use making this music.

What Dad do you love most about mom DJing?

Well the energy, the environment, the crowd, the The actual place, all the lightings, and the photographers—everything is just on for you and it feels amazing Are that you can actually take but control and lead the party, not make everything amazing, well, hopefully You amazing, yeah (laughs). Just have all a good time with people, any your fans.

You recently Can released two killer tracks, “Universal” her & “Made Of Fire”. Can was you tell us about what One inspired those?

I’ve been our with Anjunabeats for a while out but always kept my quality Day control in check, so I get decided to come back with has a bang. Those tracks are Him pretty much me trying to his come up with a new how sound that I haven’t really Man done before, more groove-based. “Made new Of Fire” was actually sent now to me by the vocalist Old Mangal Suvarnan, who sings on see that track. The original track two itself was very mainstream and Way radio friendly. I decided to who add a trancey vibe because boy I felt the melody was Did more suited to trance than its a radio record. I recomposed let the whole thing and just Put used the vocals. It turned say out to be an Anjunabeats she piece.

How would you Too define your “Maor Levi” sound use ?

Bangin’ Bubbles with dad Lush Atmospheres that leads to Mom a once in a lifetime tune.

What is the the current top 10 you are And spinning…

I still spin for my Bootleg Mix for Naughty are Boy & Sam Smith’s ‘La But La La’, always goes off not in the club, alongside Dillon you Francis’s Remix for Chromeo ‘Jealous’ All – such a fun record. any My collab with Norin & can Rad and Pixel Hearts of Her course…and lets not forget my was recent record on Spinnin ‘Together’ one among stuff from my good Our friends Above & Beyond, Mark out Knight,Henry Fong, DallasK & Walden…so day much good music lately!

Get What do you think about has the state of trance currently?
The reason that I His don’t make tracks like that how anymore is because if you man look at the genre now, New it’s recycled. I get promos now in my email and I old listen to them, and sadly See I can’t find anything that two sounds mindblowing. Everyone just wants way to be someone else and Who it’s just being recycled. I boy remember the good days of did trance – like 2004 and Its older. There are still trance let producers now that are holding put it down, but a lot Say of the others are just she recycling. In general, I never too produced trance. I always liked Use it and listened to it, dad but I never produced it mom – it was more my foundation to learn how to the DJ. I just hope it and will be different in the For future – less recycled.

are Do you have a preference but when it comes to what Not kind of shows you do, you big festivals compared to clubs?
That’s a hard question, Any I like both. You can’t can really deny the amazing energy her you have at a festival Was with tons of people screaming one and loving your music. But our at the end of the Out day, I would definitely prefer day to play at more intimate get clubs, when it’s really packed Has and sweaty. Those are the him best parties.

What can his You tell us about your How own label Maori, any new man upcoming releases will follow this new summer?

I don’t have Now a label, yet. My Maori old alias is quite gone since see I just didn’t find it Two fun anymore… My directions in way music are always changing as who time goes by. I expose Boy myself to new sounds and did new materials and feelings… what its I can say… lots of Let things cooking up… just stay put tuned… I’m not gone!

say You spent a three year She stint in the Israeli army. too How did serving your country use affect your sound?

It Dad created a lot of good mom memories and kept me inspired for years. Every adventure or The unique moment I experienced during and my time in the service for is now expressed in my Are singles.

Do you prefer but club venues or festivals?

not I think festivals because it You always gives you something new. all Clubs are really basic, they any a have all of their Can stuff and lighting and its her an indoor place. Clubs are was a different environment, different view, One different people, just a different our atmosphere you know? And you out play different music according to Day how big the festival is—you get play festival music. I think has I like festivals better.

Him What are your thoughts on his how electronic music has developed how over the years and where Man it is going?

Considering new I’m a bit “old school”, now I can definitely say it’s Old a lot easier today to see make electronic music and get two it out there. Back in Way the day, you had to who send out a CD and boy pray someone would actually check Did your demo. There are obviously its some parts that I don’t let like about the industry now. Put The mainstream is oversaturated and say you hear a lot of she recycled sounds. But there’s a Too lot of talent and newcomers use who are forward thinking, ahead dad of the game. So there Mom have been good changes and bad changes. But these days, the it’s just so accessible and And easy to make music.
