Dougal - What's In A Name-
Friday, 21 September 2007
Are you keen to take in some wakeboarding while you’re here in Australia- Wakeboarding, surfing, shark wrestling… bring it on!
What got you started in DJing- Who were your musical heroes in the beginning- My dad was a DJ so had it in me from day one. I used to sleep under the decks while he played. Sasha was my hero when I was 15; he was the only DJ to play a hands-in-the-air set.
What is it about hardcore that has kept you loyal to the sound-
Hardcore is the most fun and interesting music there is. You can never get bored of it. The atmosphere at a rave can’t be touched by anything.
You’ve been DJing for quite some time now. Can you see yourself doing anything else-
Been DJing since I was 14 [and I’m at] the grand old age of 32 now so I can’t ever see me doing anything else. I love it too much.
Are you working on any productions at the moment-
Everyday I work in the studio with Gammer – we don’t ever stop. Just done a new album called True Hardcore that’s looking great. Storm Whizkid, Sy, Unknown, Supreme and Sunset are on it as well.
What about releases through your label Essential Platinum-
The Tunnel is the next release, we try to put something out every six weeks. Going amazing at the moment.
Is there anything you haven’t achieved in your career yet-
To have five naked girls in a hot tub.
So what do you have planned for your set at Prophecy-
I never know what I am going to do until the day. I like to talk to the ravers, get some feedback on what they would like to hear, then go from there.
