Locals: CHAOS SYSTEM Interview

Who are you? How old are you?

We are chaos system, a collaboration between Yazmin (24 years old) and Darren (32 years old), both based in Malta.

How many months/ years have you been Djing / producing?

We formed this alias together approximately four months ago, but Darren has been djing for 19 years and producing music for the last 2 years, and Yazmin has been djing for the last 7 years and producing for the last 5 years.

Mention an artist that inspired you to become a DJ/producer?

We both had inspiration from different artists as we grew up. Darren started his journey in the electro scene, being mainly inspired by Spacid back in 2003 when Squadron night events used to occur. Yazmin on the other hand had inspiration from various artists as evolving in the scene, but her main inspiration came from Paul Kalkbrenner. 

Is there a local artist that you look up to and love to see play at events?

In Malta there is a lot of talent and to mention just one artist is quite impossible. 

What skills do you think DJs need to be successful?

We believe that any artist should evolve and get inspiration from various genres. With this mentality one will find their true sound and will be successful, as long as their passion is driven with determination and persistence. 

How do you stay up to date with the latest music trends?

We are always on the look out for new releases from our favourite labels and we make it a priority to dedicate time to find new artists and new music. 

What would you say is the most rewarding part of being a DJ?

The most satisfying factor for us is when our sound is being appreciated and loved by the people on the dance floor.
