It's this mood that colours Violent's DOOR podcast. His exclusive DOOR podcast has its dark spots, but for the most part it's a mix to come on the dance floor on a hot summer night, with tracks by Rödhead, Planetary Assault System and Violent's himself all featuring.
1. If you were a sound what sound would you be?
I would be an overdrive drone floating in the atmosphere.
2. What is your favorite city to play a gig?
The most outstanding city in which I've played so far is definitely Berlin. I know that probably a lot of artists would answer in this way and this is not entirely without reason... This city has a very pleasant vibe - people are easy going and also very polite, cultured. I could feel freedom and no one there was in rush. My future plans actually include moving to Berlin. But if I could choose one city in which I would love to play - it would be positively Rotterdam.
3. What is the greatest love of your life?
Music and my girlfriend - but she is a definition of music for me.
4. What would you be doing if you were not a dj?
I believe that I would be a graphic designer. Since a few years I've been creating many posters or even album covers. I've been also thinking about being a photographer. Working on forms of visual art seduces me.
5. What is something no one knows about you?
Probably no one knows that I work as a furniture carpenter or that I love tiny, cute cats - I'm not sure if it suits my "Violent” image ;)
6. What was your favorite subject in school?
Physics – it includes plenty of inspiring issues like sound waves or travelling into space.
7. What are you working on at the moment?
I'm working on a few tracks for my upcoming EP
8. What do you miss most when you are on the road?
My family and a sense of security.
