The Interview DJ Coone

IQON | DJ Coone

DJ Coone is on a roll and we the team from Q-dance had a chat with the Belgian hardstyle superstar before he makes his way Down Under for IQON.

2012 was a massive year for you. What was your most memorable performance, and what’s left on your wish list for the years to come?

Yes, it was an amazing year for me. It may sound cliché, but my “wish list” is basically just to spread the joy of Hardstyle Worldwide, to countries that still need to catch on to this amazing way of life.

And my most memorable performance of the past year has to be closing the Defqon.1 mainstage in Holland, and of course my surprise guest appearance on the Tomorrowland mainstage. What a view – just a sea of people.

Coone on the mainstage of Tomorrowland 2012:

You appeared on the mainstage of Tomorrowland alongside fellow Belgians Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike for the collab you did with them titled ‘Madness’. How did this start?

Simple, the collaboration formed basically because we’re both Belgians performing on an international level. So, we thought it would be a good idea to combine our passion for music. I’ve also recently made a remix of another one of their tracks, which they made with Angger Dimas & Steve Aoki ‘Phat Brahms’.

Steve Aoki, Angger Dimas and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – Phat Brahms (Coone Remix):

You have played in Australia before. How would you describe the fans here.

In one word: Dedicated!

You can really tell that the Australian crowd really appreciates every track you play, they just dance till they drop, also maybe because you are a little less spoilt than the Hardstyle crowd in Europe.

There has been a lot of talk about the new video clip of one of your latest solo releases ‘Headbanger’. How did you come up with the idea for it?

I wanted to do something funny, unique and different than the more regular party video clips. I hope that people really appreciate this kind of humour.

You are also founder of the Belgian hardstyle label Dirty Workz. Especially the last couple of years the label has gained a massive boost with a lot of new artists making their break-through. What do you think is the success behind the label, and what have you got planned for it for the coming years?

It is amazing what Dirty Workz has accomplished the passed couple of years. It’s basically because of the dedication of our artists and people behind the scenes who run it all. We hope to expand the label even more on an international level.

What do you have in store for us in 2013?

Well, I am working on something pretty big. One of the most important steps in my career. I can’t tell you much about it at this stage yet, so only time will tell.

And there are already a lot of confirmed festivals on my agenda this summer, so I’m really looking forward to smashing those! Sun, beer, tits and hardstyle, could life get any better? See you at IQON!
