Entrevista com Don Diablo!

No Tomorrowland encontramos com o Don para fazer essa entrevista diretamente para SWL e os fans Brasileiros!

Esse foi o Don Diablo 7 Questions by Jonny Chiappetta e The Kraken Music

Eu comecei perguntando para ele aquilo que todo fã quer saber! Se ele pudesse dizer em uma frase simples o que ele gostaria de passar o mundo com suas músicas?

Ele nos contou que suas musicas em geral passam a mensagem de união e que isso representa o objetivo dele com a música, unir as pessoas e ao mesmo tempo fazer todos sorrirem. E como produtor ele sempre busca novos sons e técnicas que possam apresentar coisas novas ao invés de se manter no passado.

"It's a very good question.

I think mostly the songs, like my biggest songs, they kind of tell the story of unity, they bring people together. You know?! If you listen to Chemicals, This Is What We Started, Children Of A Miracle. They kinda have that vibe of bringing people together, uniting them. That's my goal with music, bringing as many people together as I can and just kind bringing a smile to people's faces. And at the same time as a producer, I try to implement new production technics and come up with fresh sounds and try to push things into the future. So it's something that we can move on for instead of look back."

2- Todo mundo sabe que o Don tem uma grande carreira, foi 15# no Top 100 da DJ Mag de 2016, já ganhou prêmios como maior DJ e Produtor de Future House. O que eu quis saber foi se ele considerava isso uma meta, algo que ele quisesse desde o início ?

Ele nos contou que não imaginava tudo isso, que achava que ia tocar em clubs locais mas que hoje em dia fica muito feliz com repercussão da sua base de fãs e que sente uma obrigação com eles, é o que o move.

"Oh.. When I started I thought I'll maybe play at a local club, you know? I never thought I would be this far. But it's like.. addicted. When you see that you have such a huge fan base and that keeps growing you don't want to disappoint them. You get up in the morning and you look at all those pictures, reactions, flags, shirts, there are a hundred people with the tattoo of my logo on their body. You just feel an obligation to make those people proud. You know? So for me, it feels like I'm just getting started."

3 - Ele é simplesmente incrível não é? Além de cuidar da sua base de fãs, eu quis saber quais seriam os seus próximos planos e metas?

Então anotem aí: vem músicas novas, um álbum novo, um filme, nova coleção da linha de roupas e muito mais! Ele também fala que sua meta estaria atingida, porque quando ele

se for, teria conseguido tocar os corações das pessoas.

"I still have so many plans in my head, So much energy. I want to make the live show bigger, I want to drop the album at the end of this year maybe or early next year. I'm working on a film, the clothing line just dropped, I working on the next collection cos it's selling like crazy. It's like, I'm really excited, so it's like I' just started you know?! It's how it feels for me, so I never think about any goals. I think my main is when I'm laying in my dying bed and have the people around, and hopefully, I did that touched people in the hearts, so I would think my goal has been reached. "

4 - Essa foi a pergunta mais esperada, eu sempre quis saber a história por trás da musica "Silence", e o Don me surpreendeu com essa história pessoal tão profunda… Afinal não é fácil falar do amor da nossa vida e como as coisas podem não dar certo..

Ele fala sobre o amor da vida dele, que ele esteve com a mesma garota por 7 anos, mas trabalhando com o que ele trabalha, ele acabava passando muito tempo longe. E quando estava em casa ele acabava se concentrando em produzir mais. As coisas foram acontecendo e chegou um momento que ela pediu para ele tomar uma decisão. E um dia ele voltou para casa depois de uma longa tour e quando abriu a porta não tinha mais nada lá, só o silencio. Então, ele sentou no chão e olhou para janela.

"Ah, That's a good question.

Well, I …

The short version of it is, I have been with the same girl for almost 7 years, the love of my life I guess...We were just crazy about each other but If you do what I do… I'm always from home, and she said when you are at home, - I have a studio in my house, so I was always working, I was always trying to... My focus was really on trying to create something that lasts for the years to come, and I think in that process I forgot about what we had. And I knew I had to spend more time but at the same time I always felt like "this is my moment, I need to do it now". And we came to a point that she was like "you have to make a decision" and that's what the song is about.

The decision made it self and one day I came home after a long tour and I opened the door and all the furniture was gone, there was no one there. There was just silence, so I sat down on the floor, and I looked at the window and I was like…

You know.. there's a lot you have to sacrifice to do what you do. There are a lot of things happening that people won't see from the outside. I know people have their own way to do things but for me, it's being a long journey, a lot of work and a lot of sacrifices …

It was eighteen months ago, now I'm happily single, enjoying life, enjoying music, whole new world."

5 - Aproveitei para saber mais sobre as próximas músicas e novidades que vem por aí!

Ele nos contou, que vem música nova por aí com tendências diferentes do que ele já fez antes, todas ainda vão manter a sua característica futurística. Ele espera que os fãs gostem e possam aproveitar essa fase também! Não fiquem com medo!

" It's difficult because every time you'll make a song, you think, that is the song I want to put it out next. It's always the song that you made last and you are so excited about it. I think tonight I'm maybe going to play two or three new tracks in my set but I cannot release all them this year and there's a lot of music also that are not typically Don Diablo. They are more like down temple, or a little bit sexier, some of them more aggressive. But I want people to hear all my sides, I always been making different styles of music, I guess now I'm known by the future house but the common thing is that they are all futuristic and they all have an emotional layer. So far is going well, my fans a very open minded, I hope they are ready for changes. I always see this very dramatic conclusions when you upload something new like "Oh no you are going to change to make this now!" and I always do me but I want to play different stuff too!

Don't be afraid! haha haha

The clothing line will expand and also I'm working on a documentary film right now…More news on that to come soon!"

6 - O Don já foi varias vezes fazer Tour na Ásia , eu quis saber qual era a ligação especial que ele tinha com esses lugares e descobri que é mais do que especial !

Essa foi uma surpresa interessante, a mãe do Don é da Indonésia , então além dele ter uma grande base de fãs em toda Ásia, ele sente uma conexão especial com a indonésia.

" There's not really a favorite place but I mean my mom is Indonesian, so it's always very special when I play there because is my mother's country.

The fans in Asia they represent, so much passion, you can't see they crying on the front and I'm like - Oh I just want to hug you! - Even if it's a new song, and for me, that's the most important thing, my fans should follow me on my journey and trust me if I'm playing something new. It might be my next big song in a year, sometimes people just have to get used to, but in Asia they love it."

7 - Tocar no Tomorrowland é o sonho de muitos DJ's, mas ao mesmo tempo requer muita responsabilidade. O Don foi Mainstream esse ano, então eu quis saber o que ele estava sentido? Como é estar nessa posição?

Ele nos contou, que é algo bem emocionante para ele, mas se sente muito pressionado também, porque é um festival que abrange pessoas do mundo todo e o seu set fica gravado. Disponível para quem quiser ver depois. Após quatro anos, que ele tocou no Tomorrowland pela primeira vez em um palco nos fundos, ele hoje faz parte do line up do palco principal. Por isso levou a mamãe!

It's always very emotional for me, I don't know why, but for some reason, everyone from around the world is here, and people there have such high anticipation. There's always some pressure because they do the live stream and broadcast all over the world when normally you just play records you like and whatever, you are just having a good time but here one hour goes out to the world and people can watch for the rest of your life. It has more pressure, more emotion! I started in the back in a small stage four years ago and now I'm on the main stage. That's why I brought my mother!
