Can you describe the “happy place” you enter when you are completely finished producing a track?
LOPAZZ: It´s heaven! Some tracks are easy to produce, others take a lot of time and these ones are the tough ones…I am really happy when I am done and I can play them loud in the clubs.
How has being hard on yourself to put out the best quality dance music possible helped bring out the very best in your efforts?
LOPAZZ: Well, live is a struggle. You should love it and start everything with a smile on your face – that´s what I do, with a bit craziness and a lot of love!
100 people on the dance floor and only 20 people are dancing. How much do you focus on the 20 who are vibing with you and how much do you focus on the 80 that are just taking up space?
LOPAZZ: I try to convince the 80 to join the 20 …but I don´t get stressed – I focus on my music and what I like, but i always try to please everybody – I change the style of music if it´s not working – there´s a certain range within Electronic Music – I think a DJ should be able to change his set a lil bit from case to case.
There´s a funny DJ-Story about that…playing in a small club, everybody´s dancing – except 1 girl, asking for something different. She said “Could you
play something else? I have to prepare some stuff for my studies tomorrow and this music is to electronic for me.”
