On June 17th Suprima Musique had the pleasure to sit down with Australian superstar DJ/ producer Hook N Sling before his set at Create Nightclub in Hollywood on June 17th, 2013. Here is our exclusive interview with the man himself.
Supirma: How does it feel to be in LA, one of the EDM capitals in the US?
Hook N Sling: I actually live here now, I moved here about 12 months ago. I used to live in Sydney; I lived there my whole life. There wasn't really a specific reason to move apart I just wanted something new, I wanted a change. It's not that I've done everything I wanted to do in Australia, I still love playing there and there's still tons of places I haven't played there that I would love to. I just needed a change.
Suprima: What do you have coming from the rest of 2013? Any new releases or specific events your excited for?
Hook N Sling: Well I’m in Vegas a whole lot this year for my Light residency, which is awesome. It works out to two or three shows a month. I also finished a record today actually and I just sent it off for mastering. It’s a new single out on Spinnin Records in July and It’s called “Magnet” featuring Chris Willis. So, yeah that’s the next single that will be out in less than two months so I’m getting ready for that. A new single on Axtone is happening but its just taking time. Its called “Tokyo By Night”. There are a lot of new records coming out.
Suprima: Where do you see yourself in the next few years?
Hook N Sling: Well, I just renewed my Visa so here for the next couple years. I’m working hard right now on a lot of new records and I feel really productive. I really love producing music and its like as addiction to me. I’m obsessed by it so when I get up I listen to the radio. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a country music station or what; my mind always takes in how they produced that kick drum or how they mixed that guitar. I think I’m always going to be drawn to the technical side of music production and drawn to being very creative with writing. I also have an idea of doing in EP with non-EDM stuff, which I really enjoy. You know, I listen to a lot of different types of music so I’ll explore that.
