Exclusive Interview with DJ Mystique

Exclusive Interview with DJ Mystique

Siam2nite had the opportunity to have an exclusive interview with DJ Mystique, shortly before his performance at Live RCA on 28th August.

You are an up-and-coming DJ & Producer from Belgium and you have been part of the lineups of Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld for 5 consecutive years. How would you describe your own music in a few words?

Hmm, that’s quite difficult for me because I love to mix different styles w/ electronic music. But a name that comes close to my style is “eclectic house”, with lots of influences such as funk, urban, tropical music.

How did you get in touch with electronic dance music in the first place and how did you get into DJing & music production.

Well I started out as a Hip Hop DJ back mixing all kinds of urban styles. After 6 years I started getting more into dance music, and also I was getting quite bored with the direction of the sound that hiphop was heading. House music was new for me, refreshing, exciting and the feedback of the crowd was so addictive for me that I completely fell in love with the genre. .

You have released tracks on prestigious record labels such as Sony, Ultra, Spinnin, Mad Decent & CR2 and you are best known for your tracks “Pull Up”, “Big Ol' Booty” and “Brand New”. What other tracks, remixes or mix-sets would you recommend to someone that is not yet familiar with your music?

Well I just released a collab “Step into a World” with Yves V (Tomorrowland Resident DJ) that is available as a free download (www.soundcloud.com/yves-v). Other tracks I recommend is my break out single: "Here comes that sound", that track was one of the Tomorrowland anthems of 2012. This was also one of the first projects I started experimenting with samples. On my Soundcloud (www.soundcloud.com/deejaymystique) music lovers can download my “Hijack” mixes.

What was the best and the worst gig you ever played and what were the funniest things ever occurred during any of your performances?

The craziest gig was my DJ set on the Tomorrowland Partyflight, to be able to play a DJ set on an airplane was an unique experience. My worst gig was an outdoor party where the cops forced the organisation to a sound-limit of 85 Db, you could hear the people talking louder than the music what made it quite impossible to create any kind of party vibe. .

You live in Antwerp, the most populous city in Belgium. What can you tell us about clubbing and nightlife there? Do you have any nightlife related suggestions for first-time visitors?

Well we have quite an vibrant nightlife scene here with different clubs and bars. If you can make it big here you can make it big all over world because of our international character (major harbour). The partyfolks are quite spoiled so people expect DJs to play high-energy sets to keep them excited. For first time visitors I would suggest to visit mega club Noxx (with 5 rooms) and Villa for a more classy party experience. Those who like it more underground can go on Saturdays to Publik for the urban music or Labybrinth for the best Deep House. .

On 28th August you will make your Thailand Debut at Live RCA. Have you ever visited Thailand before? What can the Bangkok crowd expect of your upcoming performance?

Yeah I’ve been in Thailand quite often, people can expect a crazy energetic DJ set with live mc’ing to spice things up. Also I will be premiering some new songs so I hope Bangkok is ready for me because I will bring the madness “Tomorrowland” style !! :D
