DJ Faded: Interview


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


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

Some weird fuck

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because I love it, I wouldn’t trade it for the world and when other people enjoy it makes it that much better.

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

I just loved the music staying up late when I was a child listening to the mixes and different sounds and I just couldn’t get enough of it, hearing different DJs and producers take you on a journey through music, I knew I wanted to give people the same feelings I felt.

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

Toughest part I would say was getting myself out there, I have my team to thank for that, I know I wouldn’t be where I am today with out them.

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

No one in particular inspired me I would say many did all the DJs I got to listen to growing up on the radio.  Haha not to sure if I’ve inspired anyone myself, I hope I have even if its just a small bit.

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

Hahaha first time using cdjs was at a gig, just hoped I didn’t fuck up the whole time.

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

Few Summer Fesitvals one to name would be Garden of Eden im very excited about although its only the 3rd year of it Im happy to say ive been apart of it since the start and watched it grow to what it is now.

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

We’re all human.. well maybe.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Cant forget my team at Party Central those lovely fuckers.
