Locals: TRIISS

Who are you? How old are you?

I am Tristan known by my stage name Triiss, I am 21 years old born and raised in Cospicua.
 

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

 I have been aspired by DJs and music producers both locally and internationally from an early stage and about 2 years ago I took the decision to start my career in music entertainment and since then I have been practicing and connecting with likeminded people which have landed me a residential spot in Playground. I have played in various clubs in Malta both Melodic and peak hour techno. 
 

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

 I have various artists who inspire my music career, however, that one person who gave me courage to play is my friend Nevyalc. 
 

What skills do you think DJs need to be successful?

 From my experience in the scene, the most important aspect of being a successful DJ are three things: creative mixing skills, people skills and track selection. 
 

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

 I stay updated with the music scene by listening to other DJs play new music, digging online platforms and recommendations by other DJ friends and receiving unreleased music by fellow producers. 
 

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

 When I see people raving and enjoying my set. My job as a DJ is to deliver the best entertainment and track selection to my followers.
