Locals: NATURA2K

Who are you? How old are you?

My name is Thomas Farrugia and im 27 years old.

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

I started DJing in 2020 and have been doing so for 4 years.

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

There are several international DJs that border between techno and trance that have highly inspired my style of DJing over the years. A few that come to mind include Anetha, Ki/Ki, Øtta and Funk Tribu.

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

I really enjoy listening to local DJs who have crafted their own distinct style. Have to shout out my friends Scythe and Parvatis who i work very well with as well as hard techno DJs Reactant, Inverted and Millø.

What skills do you think DJs need to be successful?

I think its always about passion for the music and the style that you enjoy. Skills will improve automatically as long as you continue doing what you love. There are also several platforms that provide guides on working within the modern DJ industry and what it takes to expand your brand slowly.

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

I monitor many of my favorite labels and follow many DJs/artists across their different release schedules. Its a constant cycle of digging deeper into the artists/DJs that share a sound that interests you.

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

I find it incredibly insipring to be part of a community of creators that work tirelessly to push the boundaries and create a thriving scene on the Island. This growing scene continues to bring with it bigger opportunities for local talent and this drives me to keep doing what i love.
