Exclusive Interview with D-Wayne

Siam2nite had the opportunity to have an exclusive interview with D-Wayne, shortly before his performance at NOXS Bangkok on 5th November.

Where are you answering these questions?

From my studio back in the Netherlands! Recovering from a hectic ADE week :-)

You are a DJ & Producer from the Netherlands, signed to Afrojack’s Wall Recordings. How did you get in touch with electronic dance music in the first place and how did you get into DJing?

I got in touch with dance music through a CD from Tiesto - my parents used to listen to that stuff all the time! And then after I actually bumped into a DJ by accident since I threw a party for my classmates, started joining him on little shows and then started playing myself more often. After a while I thought it'd be great to play my own tracks while performing, so I started practicing on producing music.......................and here we are today! ;-)

You play & produce Electro House & Progressive House music. How would you describe your music in a few words, what is distinct about it?

It's all about the energy and making people dance - it's mainly club music with commercial touches.

You are best known for your collaboration with Afroack “Freedom” - the track hit the #7 spot on the Dutch Top 40 chart – as well as “AMMO” & “Africa” and your most recent track “Take U” (a collaboration with Alvaro). You have also remixed for R3hab, Tiësto, Enrique Iglesias and Jennifer Lopez. What other tracks, remixes or mix-sets would you recommend to someone that is not yet familiar with your music?

People should for sure check out Detonate with Leon Bolier - it includes a kickass violin in the break and has had amazing support by so many big dj's. And perhaps tracks like Ignition and Modus, they are more underground but I love to play these :-)

What is on your agenda for the near future and what are you currently working and focusing on?

I'm flying to the states coming weekend and then when I get back I'll be working on new music for a while, up until I fly out to Asia to tour. For the rest of the year I will mainly be focusing on producing new music, as I have been so busy touring over the last few months.

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

The best gig was probably playing the Great Wall of China festival in Beijing last year, such an unique and crazy experience. The worst gig.. obviously I've had more quiet shows in the past but they've all been great! And the funniest thing - I once bumped into a girl on stage, naked, covered in D-wayne stickers.. No clue how she managed to get them, and didn't really know how to react haha!

You made your Thailand Debut at Together Festival 2015 - alongside Afrojack, DJ BL3ND, MAKJ and Apster. Did you keep that performance – and Thailand in general - in good memory? What can the Bangkok crowd expect of your Nights by Absolut performance at Ark Bar Koh Samui November 4th and NOXS Bangkok on November 5th?

I still remember that show yes, the vibe was great and I had a lovely time - even though we were only for like 9 hours in Bangkok.. The upcoming shows are gonna be packed with new music, great energy and I just want to have a biggg party with the people! So, everyone better be well rested because we are going to party our asses off :-)
