Introduce yourself in 5 words or less.

I am the music man.

How would you define your sound?

Jump-Up Electro.

What is something about you we wouldn’t know by looking at you?

I’m a stamp collector…Not really! Errrm, I have an obsession with drinking tea. English breakfast is my fave!

If you could work with any 3 DJ/Musician, dead or alive, who would they be and why?

Liam Howlett from the prodigy for being such a dance music pioneer in the 90’s.

DJ Q-Bert for breaking boundaries as a DJ and showing the world stuff on the turntables that no one could have ever though of.

Lauryn Hill the way she sang in the 90’s. I bet she’d do a killer vocal!

How do you define sexy?

Natural beauty! Not about the fake eyelashes and the makeup that looks like it has been caked on by Steve Aoki. Sexy isn’t someone who flaunts it in my opinion. Obviously a little bit of cheekiness doesn’t go a miss though!

What do you think is the sexiest city? Hotel? Club? Festival? Music Track?

City: Manchester, UK.
Hotel: Mondrian South Beach Hotel – Miami, USA
Club: Amnesia – Ibiza, Spain
Festival: Tomorrowland – Boom, Belgium
Track: Chris Lake – Oh Shhh (Original Mix)

What’s next for D.O.D?

Music, music and more music! I’ve been working my ass off this month. Testing the water with some fresh sounding music. Trying to stay one step ahead of the game. Still doing what I’m doing not but trying to push boundaries and make some more ‘intelligent’ sounding dance music. I’ve also got some big collabs coming up with the likes of Laidback Luke, Borgore, DJ Bl3nd, Sandro Silva + more! Going to be a very busy year of releases!

What are your three simple luxuries?

My three simple luxuries are my computer, my speakers and tea. I LOVE TEA.

We spend most of our time listening to new tracks that people send to us or going through new songs hitting the charts.  Outlines by Mike Mago & Dragonette had already been out for awhile before we found it but when we saw the video we instantly fell in love.  We think this song might be our new obsession. It’s pretty entrancing! Check it out below!

Guenta K – No No No (Please Don’t Go)…Makes Strong Entrance on Dance Charts

Guenta K - No No No (Please Don't Go) official video_raannt

Honestly, we have never heard of Guenta K.  We were able to find out that the man behind the mix is Günter Kunz but we don’t more than that.  And although he’s had a few other releases, none have done as well as his newest release No No No (Please Don’t Go) which entered the European Dance Charts at #36!  We’re not sure what to think…check it out and let us know what you think!
