Interview for Rave People. Part 2

On January 25th I will play a 6-hour set, and in the meantime, Rave People team asked me about the intricacies of such a challenging performance.

In 2019 you already performed in the Open To Close format. What was the hardest thing for you to do?

Generally speaking, the most important and at the same time, the most difficult thing in the DJ booth is the ability to put the right track at the right time. The music collection I told you about last time is also important, but if a DJ can’t put together a whole story from individual tracks during a set, then the price of such a collection is a penny.

It’s one thing to keep people’s attention and interest on the dance floor for an hour or two, and it’s completely another thing to do it by yourself all night long. You can safely say that such performance is a true test of DJ skills.

Specifically, last time I had the hardest time restraining myself in order not to play all the most “fire” tracks at once. When you know that you have all night long at your disposal, you have to allocate your resources, including music, in a very different way. Open To Close is a marathon, not a sprint.
