Ariyan: Interview 


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Life , Music , Dedication , Family

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

Someone who is striving to succeed in what he loves doing best, while having a blast with friends and family on the way.

Why do you do what you do?

So I can make and share music with people all over the world.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I always loved listening to music but I didn't really know that I wanted to do DJ until I watched guys like Roger Sanchez and Laidback Luke DJ. I had major support from my friends and family so it definitely inspired me to pursue it.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

There are A LOT of speed bumps. As there are in many professions. I have had the support from my older brother during this entire journey so I am blessed to have what I have.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Many people have inspired me to do what I do. Seeing people strive in what they love is an inspiration for me. My parents working the way they did so that I can become what I am today is the biggest inspiration. I can't speak for anyone else but I hope I have :)

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I have made a couple mistakes , nothing major. I believe making mistakes from time to time will help you go further in your career. Sometimes witnessing other peoples mistakes will help as well.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I have tons of music that I am working on. Just finished a collaboration with my good friend Apster. I also have another one with Joe Ghost. I have also started working on a follow up track with Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano. I cant wait for you guys to hear them :)

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Do you!

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Hope to see you at my next show :)
