Dreambeach – Dream Feature

HARDWELL

– Can you tell us the best dream you’ve ever had? What happened in it?
I’ve spoken about this a lot over the years but growing up as a kid I used to dream about being a DJ and rocking these crazy mainstage, then speed forward 10 years and there I was doing just that! To live your childhood dream is something I can’t really put into words!

– What was your dream job as a child?
As just mentioned, my dream was to be a dj. It was all I wanted, and I worked (and still do) tirelessly at my craft to achieve my goals. I would literally race home from school to spin on my decks. Even all these years later I still love the art of djing and digging for new tracks.

– Do you have a dream car or gadget?
I’d like to have a drive of a real F1 car. Last this year I was invited to perform on the podium during the Mexico Grand Prix. I was actually the first DJ to ever perform on the official Podium after the race winners have collected their trophies. The drivers team gave me a full tour of the garages which was an amazing experience and left me fascinated by the F1 car, which is seriously amazing car!

– And if you could pick your dream gig, what would it be and where? This doesn’t have to be anywhere real, it can be anything!
To be the first DJ in space? Dropping my classic ‘Spaceman’ with Earth as the backdrop would be pretty sick!

– Lastly, what would your dream b2b be? (alive or dead)
I love playing after parties and using the chance to play different sets with music that people wouldn’t expect to hear from me. So how about a b2b with Dr Dre playing a classic hip hop set! That would be cool!

 

NERVO

– Can you tell us the best dream you’ve ever had? What happened in it?
The problem with dreams is we always forget them when we wake up but of course there have been some great dreams like ; flying, speaking to people who have passed away as if they were still there in the room, speaking to animals, singing with animals like they do in Disney films.. We love food dreams too and dreams about holidays, and ofc naughty dreams too haha!

– What was your dream job as a child?
Mim : I wanted to be a pilot but I was told I couldn’t because my eye sight wasn’t good enough.
Liv : I wanted to be a vet or a farmer bc I wanted to hang with animals all day.

– Do you have a dream car or gadget?
Mim : The Batmobile. It looks so cool!
Liv : A time machine. I would bounce back in time and into the future.

– And if you could pick your dream gig, what would it be and where? This doesn’t have to be anywhere real, it can be anything!
Firstly, all our friends would be there, it would be somewhere warm, we would have a bunch of our DJ buddies from all types of genres with us like Steve Aoki and Angello, Dimi and Mike, Sophie Tukker, Dubfire, Jax Jones, DOD, etc etc ETC . It would be a marathon of music, heaps of B2B’s. The sound system would be top notch and there would be an open Shake Shack for anyone and everyone to have burgers whenever they like.

– Lastly, what would your dream b2b be? (alive or dead)
Of course it would be Avicii. It would be a dream if he was still with us!

 

SLUSHII

– Can you tell us the best dream you’ve ever had? What happened in it?

CHOCOLATE PUMA

– Can you tell us the best dream you’ve ever had? What happened in it?
The thing with dreams is that I often forget about it within 5 seconds of waking up! Except those nightmares where I DJ and can’t find the next record.

– What was your dream job as a child?
Architect, not because I exactly knew what it was, but because it sounded fancy,

– Do you have a dream car or gadget?
Citroën SM

– And if you could pick your dream gig, what would it be and where? This doesn’t have to be anywhere real, it can be anything!
Go back 100 years, just to see how freaked out people would be if they heard house music haha.

– Lastly, what would your dream b2b be? (alive or dead)
Probably with my late grandfather who was a great musician and had a Jazz combo. It would be interesting to hear what would have happened if our two worlds would have come together.
