As Fashion Week continues in New York, we asked a few electronic dance music artists questions about who their favorite designers are, or in what ways they would describe their fashion sense. We learned a few things in the process, mostly that these DJ's don't really have fashion on their radar. However, and in honor of the "holiday," we figured we'd share with you what your favorite artists had to say...
We read in a past interview you really like shopping. Have you kept up with NY Fashion Week at all in the past?
Jochen Miller: Sorry, I haven't! I do love shopping and fashion, but I don't follow up on each trend, so I hardly ever watch fashion-shows. It's a shame I'm not still in town for Fashion Week though, as I can imagine the city must be sizzling then, I'm sure I would have loved the atmosphere!
If you've ever taken a look at Jochen Miller's Facebook page, you'd know that he loves updating his fans with photos of the delicious foods he is about to indulge in, photos of his adorable daughter, and live sets from past shows. But in the DJ booth, Miller shows us no mercy as he throws down some of the most exhilerating sets we've heard. As Electric Zoo quickly approaches, we spoke to Jochen about his upcoming show at one of the official afterparties at Roseland Ballroom with W&W, Firebeatz, and Zack Roth on September 1st. Read on to see what he had to say about returning to New York and some insights as to who he is as both your average human being and as a DJ/producer!
Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival has consistently been remarked as the premier Electronic Music festival in the country. With steady competition from Ultra Music Festival , and the multitude of other events that have developed in the past few years, claiming that title is quite a feat. Insomniac’s founder, Pasquale Rotella, has rose through the ranks of California promoters to a point of utmost success. He has absolutely earned his stripes, with the immense scale of his events and consequences this sometimes brings. The risk involved with such massive gatherings as these has made it necessary for Pasquale to impose a new standard for safety at these events, both at the gates and in the festival. In both appearance and functionality, EDC proved to be nothing less than the world-class event that was beckoned for.
After discovering house music in 2010, I dabbled in the different sects of electronica and found myself in love. In March of 2011, I made my official crossover from rap-enthusiast to househead when I attended Ultra Music Festival. Nearly a year later, I cannot wait to return to my stomping grounds and once again bask in the harmonious music and beating sunshine.
Last year’s festival was an incredible experience, but as a newbie, I had a lot to learn. The low-point of my weekend was when my ticket was ripped off of the lanyard strewn around my neck by a drunken fool. The maniac grabbed the ticket that was hanging above my chest, and ran. Luckily, my mother had always instilled within me the importance of self-defense, so I lunged at the crazy kid who attempted to steal the $275 ticket and returned the item to its rightful owner... me.
