We got some sound advice, wit and wisdom from some of the world’s top DJs. Today’s question:
What was your proudest moment?
Hearing my song on the radio. It instantly validated everything I have worked for.
Winning from all the other sperm cells.
Playing Coachella, and the success of “Animals.”
Getting interviewed by Vibe Magazine. Grabbing the attention of major agencies and labels isn’t far behind that!
In this business, there are a ton of highs and lows. We’ve had so many proud moments that have changed our lives and perspectives. But realistically, our proudest moment might be one that we overlook. It’s the moment our group formed. That’s when this whole journey started. That day changed everything for us and allowed for all the opportunities we have experienced these past years.
Winning a Grammy is a huge achievement in any artists’ career, and I was lucky enough to win one for my remix of Public Enemy. It was one of my biggest accomplishments. Much of the credit goes to my producer and cousin, Alle Benassi.
Being the first DJ to play the Hollywood Bowl and Madison Square Garden. And pioneering electronic music and laying down the foundations for residencies in Las Vegas.
Dzeko & Torres
I think getting asked to do a collaboration with Tiësto. It really meant a lot to us, as we’d looked up to him for so long, and now he wanted to work with us.
1st when I became a dad, 2nd when I made it to #21 in DJMAG—considering I’m doing everything myself.
Becoming a father.
I don’t really have a proudest moment yet. Although I can picture a moment of proudness—like winning a Grammy…
Still waiting on it.
When I asked my parents to come on a festival stage, in Paris, the day of my birthday. My mother cried, and I almost did.
I guess it has to come.
