Vbpm: Recently you’ve teamed up with Dutch singers Nick & Simon on ‘Won’t Back Away’, which comes hot on the heels of your latest singles ‘Bapalapa’ and ‘Candy’. Is this a sneak peek of your forthcoming album?
-JD: They are not a certain style that will necessarily be on the album, but it’s more a proof that the album will be very varied and experimental from my side!

Vbpm: Who would you say has influenced you the most musically?
-JD: I can’t name a person actually. I get inspired by different genres of music but mostly places I go to. I’m also one of those people who get inspired by just opening my laptop.

Vbpm: Which do you consider as your biggest moment in your career so far?
-JD: To see music that weren’t aimed to get onto radio and then do so. “Raven” is a good example, we thought it was a cool club track but 11 million streams on Spotify later, we were clearly wrong.

Vbpm: What piece of advice would you give to young producers who dream (sounds a little farfetched) to reach your artistic standards?
-JD: You have to be original and don’t try to sound exactly like anyone else. You can of course be inspired by a certain song or dj, but you need to have your own style. Another thing is to set up smaller goals on your way and have a steady aim for what you wanna do.

-JD: Definitely BROHUG.

Vbpm: Any interesting news you would like to share with us regarding your plans in 2017?

In my case the “bug” of journalism overcame "DJing". However, the search for new electronic dance music remains... an addiction. I work as an editor on a nationwide daily newspaper in Athens, where’s my permanent residence. I retain the following Blog, which is updated daily. My hobby is conducting interviews with Greek and foreign producers/DJs.
