DJ Henward : Interview

 

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

Insipiration = Women (no joke) , Passion = Dedication & Strength = Superman looks pretty strong ... yeah that guy ! 

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

I am a person among many others . I express myself through music . I learn . I teach . I live .

Why do you do what you do?

Because I can’t stop . Nothing makes me feel like I do when I play music .

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

As soon as I touched a record and made a sound with it . It was an instant revelation . I became instintantly  obsessed .

 

There are some things in life that you are naturally drawn to for some reason or another . I remember doing mixtapes in highschool with movie clips in between every song that fit with the theme of the next song . I like things with stories , story tellers were always appealing to me , i wasn’t very good at writing or telling stories , making those mixtapes let me tell stories through music . I think what drew me to djing is the opportunity to tell a story in a more elaborate way .

 

 

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

My own doubt. ADD.

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

so many things/people inspire me everyday . But one thing that stands out in my mind is a quote from Michael Jordan : “ you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” .

 

I hope that what i do and how i do it inspire some people , but no , I don’t think i can give myself  credit for inspiring any particular person .  

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

not trusting myself enough in show situations. Coming up in ths buisness i’ve learned to not try to hard to please the crowd but instead to bring them into a world of discovery .

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

Production . I want to bring my songwriting to the same level as my djing .

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

Be a sponge ! you never where inspiration will come from , make sure to be receptive to advice , ideas , projects ... whatever . Most of my better ideas , ventures , etc.. came from places i could’ve never predicted .

 

Be humble .

 

Do it ‘cause you love it .

 

oh! almost forgot ...

 

have fun !

 

That is all .

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

BASS DRIVE WEDNESDAYS !

AXIS BOARDSHOP !

SPY EYEWEAR !
