Redlinerz: Interview


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

Inspiration: DVBBS, the homies took over the world in less than 2 years, thats inspiration. Passion: us, we are so passionate about music and what we do. Strength: GAINS!

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

We are Redlinerz, a young DJ and Producing duo from Toronto Canada. We are breaking out onto the international scene and wont stop till we do!

Why do you do what you do?

We love it, hands down, feels like home to be on stage. For an hour we can make someone forgot about all their issues, let go, and make them have a great time, best feeling ever.

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

I have always had a vision with music, i made Massimo realize this is december 2012. Since then, small shows turned into big shows and we are still at it.

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

Toughest thing, is proving yourself and getting substantial and constant shows at first. It still is hard. They say Toronto is one of the hardest markets for an upcoming DJ or producer, there’s so much competition.

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

DVBBS, met them 2 years ago when they had less than 10,000 facebook fans and realized these guys had something, and in 2 years they're at what, half a million fans, recognized world wide? These guys stay humble and make time for friends and fans still and they throw the best live shows hands down.

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

Thinking this was going to be easier. Man were we wrong. And also after the entire “EDM” and DJ craze and blowup, every suddenly was a DJ and the actual up and coming talent seemed to loose credibility.

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

Lots of new content coming from originals to remixes. Some exciting and different releases coming everyones way, also support from some big guns!

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

Don’t follow the hype, follow your heart. Stay true to yourself, do what you wanna do. And that there’s more to “EDM” and “raving” than trap and big room, keep an open mind and explore some new genres!
