DJ Van Andreas
What/who inspired you to be a DJ?
My cousin in Vancouver got me initially interested, but it wasn't until I met my buddy Gilberto, who wanted me to show him what I knew of production, and in turn started to teach me the basics of DJing, that I really got into it.
What do you enjoy most about DJing?
When you are not working which DJs would you go to see (Locally and internationally)?
Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, Laidback Luke, Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, MSTRKRFT, Spencer & Hill, Adam K, Rusko, Netsky, Armin Van Buuren, Skream, Glitch Mob, Dub FX and lots more!!
What genre do you play at the moment?
Mostly House...Electro, Progressive, Vocal, Tech, etc, any type of House, but I also enjoy playing Trance, DnB, and a bit of Dubstep
