DJ Dave Seaman chatted with Digital Journal about his love for music and performing, as well as the inspiration behind his music.
When asked what he loves most about performing, he said, "It’s so gratifying to see people really enjoying themselves because of what I do. To be able to play music that I love and see other people love it too, it’s a wonderful connection. Music really does have the power to bring people together."
On his future plans, he said, "I’ve just finished remixes for Jozif and for Affkt plus I have two originals nearly done too. Plus we have some superb releases lined up for my label, Selador from the likes of Florian Kruse, Acumen, Affkt and Stelios Vassiloudis. Then gig-wise, there’s loads of exciting shows on the horizon… My favourite festival in the world - Glastonbury, Watergate Berlin, Sonar Barcelona, several Ibiza dates, Rex Club Paris… Summer is nearly here!"
The hardest part of his job is sleep deprivation. "Everything is twice as hard when your shattered. And most weekends involve lack of sleep. I’ve had so many people over the years come away with me and not lasted the weekend. It sorts the men out from the boys," he said.
Regarding his inspiration for his music, he said, "Inspiration really can come from anywhere at anytime. I will often get a boost by seeing someone else do their chosen art or profession particularly well. So other human beings would be major source. But it really could be anything from a beautiful sunny day to the solitude of a flying solo on a long plane journey when you have time to think without all the distractions of everyday life."
On his dream collaboration choices, he said, "There's so many amazing artists, it’s hard to pick just one. But I reckon working with Bjork would be quite an experience. I’m absolutely loving the new Goldfrapp album right now too, so Alison Goldfrapp is another that springs to mind."
His advice for aspiring DJs and producers is as follows: "Don’t cut corners. There’s no substitute for hard work. Apply the same amount of effort into everything you do whether you’re playing to 10 people or 10,000. You never know who’s watching."
For his fans and followers, he concluded, "Thank you for the support."
