One-on-One with DJ and Producer Moti
First I would like to say thank you for the opportunity to interview you.
Thank you, happy to connect!
How did you get involved in the music industry?
A friend of mine sold his turntables. I bought them and started practicing just for fun. A few years later I started producing and this led to me signing to a management.
Who have been your inspirations growing up who also inspire you today?
Definitely my parents. Musically Jimi Hendrix, Alter Ego & Derrick May.
What do you want your fans to take away from your music?
It depends. For the club tracks I just want people to have a good time and party to the music. For the slower tracks or less clubby tracks I hope people get carried away by it when they play it at home.
You have played alongside of Tiesto and Calvin Harris, collaborated with Martin Garrix and Sander van Doorn just to name a few and you have seen accolades and remixes from numerous artist inside and outside electronic music. Who has been the most influential to your career?
Definitely Tiësto. When he signed me my whole career went to the next level.
“Turn Me Up” featuring Nabiha has been getting a TON of exposure and support. Does it still get you excited to see how well your hard work pays off or is it just another day at the office feel?
Yes of course its exciting and especially with this record. Its a bit different from my previous records so I’m super happy with the support!
The relationship with the audience is crucial for a DJ, and yet it seems to be a fragile one. How do you see the balance between giving the crowd what they want and treating them to something new?
I think its good to do a combination. I always try to play mostly my own tracks in my set, but if I notice its a commercial crowd, I play mashups of my own records with popular vocals, that always works!
What has been your favorite Festival or club to perform at so far?
Bootshaus Germany, RFM Somnii Portugal, Guaba Beach Club
Craziest thing that has happened on during a set?
Peeing under the dj booth in a cup because there wasn’t time to go off stage.
What is one track/song that never gets old for you no matter how many times you hear it? Any genre.
Fish Go Deep – The Cure And & The Cause (Dennis Ferrer Remix)
What do you enjoy doing in your down time?
Halo 5, Call Of Duty or just hanging out with friends
Best advice you have been given?
Make the music you like not what others expect of you
If you were not a DJ/producer what would you be doing?
Fashion Designer, I studied fashion
