Locals: LN Interview

Who are you? How old are you?

I’m Alain Bugeja, 31 years old  and I play under the name LN and one ½ of duo Elaàr.

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

I completed full djing course with fused djing under the talented mentor Adrian V, I have been DJing in clubs for 8 years following a residency at cabanas club prior to its closure in 2014 which led me to move forward and also promote my own events mainly at Liquid Club.

I started producing my own music 4 years ago.

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

I got into DJing after seeing Jeff Mills on stage ripping tattingers club apart. The man had the crowd in the palm of his hands. Electro artists like Boys Noize and The Hacker also left a mark on me. Phase fatale and Blush Response inspired me to start producing my own music.

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

Always a pleasure listening to Alek Sane and Antimatter as well as my buddy René. Their track selection and choice of style always catch my ear’s attention.

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

Social media has given us the ease to follow our favourite artist much easier than the last decade where magazines and low budget websites were only available.

What skills do you think DJs need to be successful?

DJs must know their crowd and find ways to interact with them while on stage.

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

Seeing the crowd react to certain moments of your set is the most rewarding part of it!
