Devin Wild interview by Keyvent
During the 1st anniversary of HardSpot Events we used our chance and interviewed one of the biggest newcomers in the Hardstyle scene, Mr. Devin Wild!
- Did you enjoy your set?
I did man! I didn’t really know what to expect, it wasn’t too crowded but people were really enthusiastic and they wanted to party. This created a really good vibe and that’s always good for me. I don’t really care if there are like 2.000 people or just 100 but if they want to party then it’s totally fine. If they have fun I have fun as well.
- How do you like Germany?
I’m playing in Germany already since 2015. The first event was the Easter Rave and I loved Germany from the start.
- What do you think about the German Hardstyle scene compared to the Netherlands?
I freaking love it! It’s growing really fast now and I always love to play for a German crowd. In the Netherlands there is a Hardstyle party every weekend and the people really know everything so they are a little spoiled. In Germany it’s a totally different vibe and I love it.
- You’re really busy travelling around the globe. Where do you get your energy from?
I’m just doing it man (laughing)! Sometimes you are tired but if I have fun I can handle it.
- Besides Hardstyle, is there another music genre you listen to?
Yeah I listen a lot to Soul – I have grown up with it. Earth, Wind & Fire, Luther Vandross amongst others. I get also a lot of inspiration out of Ambient for my breaks. Besides that, I like Dubstep, Drum & Bass and sometimes even Pop- Rock. When the music has a good vibe I don’t really care about the genre.
- Which track dominates the dancefloor?
That’s so hard man, I don’t think I can choose one. I guess it’s more like artists . Just to name a few : Sub Zero Project, Noisecontrollers and Atmozfears
- Is there something you’d like to say to your German fans?
What I want to say to my German fans? Continue with the good vibes at the parties and keep on supporting us as that gives us a lot of motivation and that keeps on growing the scene, you know? We all need each other!
- What can we expect from Scantraxx this year? (answered by Matthijs Noordhuis)
At the moment we’re working very hard on a completely new online strategy. New design, new social media strategies and other marketing improvements. In January we signed Demi Kanon, one of the better hardstyle producers in my opinion, so we’re very happy with that. Together with other guys like Devin Wild, KELTEK, Adrenalize, RVAGE and Enemy Contact they are ready to be the next generation of Scantraxx superstars. This year we’re also bringing a new hosting concept with Scantraxx which will be announced soon, so keep an eye on our socials for updates on this.
The interview was recorded during the HardSpot Anniversary on the 10th of February.
Big thanks to Devin Wild & Matthijs Noordhuis from DVTD MGMT!
