Dutch DJ and producer Jay Hardway chatted with Digital Journal about his new track "Scio" and his recognition in the DJ Magazine Top 100 DJs poll.
On his new track "Scio," he said, "I wanted to do something different and show more of my personality music-wise. I don't try to create hits but I want to make music that moves people emotionally. Especially with tracks like this. "
His plans for the future are to continue to make more different music and for him to be afforded the opportunity to work with vocalists. "Also, I have several aliases with different genres of music and I hope I'm going to have more time to finish and publish that music as well," he said, with a smile.
Hardway is drawn to electronic dance music (EDM) since it feels like a big community, where the fans and artists are really connected. "Fans can reach out on social media and we as artists can reach so many fans by simply posting one picture. I truly believe EDM connects people around the world. You don't need to speak someone's language, but you can still reach them with music," he explained.
On the future of electronic music, he said, "It's an exciting time in electronic music right now, there are a lot of new styles and genres being born and this is great for artist's inspiration. I think genres will blend even more and artists you don't expect are working together. Good examples are The Chainsmokers and Coldplay, which is an amazing collaboration."
For aspiring DJs and producers, Hardway encouraged them to make music that they love and it allows them to be themselves, both musically and personally. "Be humble and work hard," he underscored. He defined the word success as being able to do what he loves to do the most every single day.
In 2016, he made his debut in the DJ Magazine Top 100 DJs poll at No. 89. "It was amazing! So many fans voted for me and that really gives a great feeling.  Major shout out to all my fans for supporting me all the way into the DJ Mag Top 100," Hardway exclaimed.
For his loyal fans, Hardway concluded, "Thanks for the support and thanks for believing in me, even when I'm doing different kind of tracks. This means a lot to me. "
