Locals: VIVU Interview

Where can we find your music?

Who are you? How old are you?

My name is Jurgen I’m 22 years old and my stage name is Vivu.

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

I started learning to DJ for approximately 3 years but started playing in clubs and events about 2 years ago. As for producing I’m working on some stuff but I’m still in the learning process of it all but feeling like I’m getting there.

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

To be honest it wasn’t just a particular DJ it was more of the culture around the electronic music scene. I followed so much different DJs of different genres that I honestly can not choose, But if I had to narrow it down I think it would be Paul Kalkbrenner, although my sound now a days is so much different from his style of music what inspired me about him was that he did it because he loved music and I really can relate to that.

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

One of my long time favourites is Carl Bee his energy and control over the crowd always blew my mind.

What skills do you think DJs need to be successful?

Passion for music and knowing what the people want to hear. Don’t just play what you want play what they want.

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

I use a few different platforms like Spotify, Soundcloud and bandcamp.

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

Making people remember your name every time they look back at their party days, because these are moments we will never forget and thats the most rewarding thing about being a DJ, creating memories.
