Interview

Hey Jorn! How excited are you to be returning back to Australia for the ASOT 700 Celebration Weekend?
Very excited! Last year I had some wonderful Armada Nights with Andrew Rayel & MaRLo in Australia. It’s more than a pleasure to perform again this year in your country. The ASOT 700 celebration will be massive. It’s great to be back because I love to play in Australia!

What difference has A State of Trance made for you – personally? In what way has the show contributed to your career?
ASOT means a lot for me. Over the last years Armin van Buuren and his radio show gave me the chance to present all my music to a huge audience, no other radio show in the world has the power to present Trance Music on the highest level, Armin van Buuren is supporting so many new talents and is giving them a chance to follow their dreams. His ASOT listeners voted my track “New Horizons” as their official ASOT 650 anthem and that made me really proud. ASOT supporters are true supporters and I try to pay it back with good music.

Have you been a fan of the A State Of Trance radio show for a long time?
Yes, since the first hour. I got my first airplay on Episode 026, but under a hidden name. 😉

You’ll be playing in Sydney this weekend. Got any special plans for your set? Any exclusives or surprises?
To be honest, I decide on stage what kind of stuff I play or not. I don’t prepare my sets. The only thing what I can say is, that I will play a powerful DJ set and when I tell you any surprises here, it’s not a surprise anymore, right? Every DJ set of mine is unique. If you like a unique sound, you have to come to my stage. If not, there is another stage open. 😉

What do you feel sets you apart from other trance artists?
I own alongside Armin van Buuren an ASOT anthem title. It’s great to see my name in that ASOT anthem hall of fame.

Do you think this is a good time for trance music, overall? Where do you think the evolution of trance music will fall next?
It’s a good time … since 1993! I have listened to trance music for 20 years. Every year people talk about what’s coming next or prophesy that trance is dead or ask what kind of evolution will fall next. Listen, Trance Music survived all electronic music genres in the last 2 decades! So please ask me again in 10 years and you will get the same answer.

Any last words to your Australian fans?
Can’t wait to see you all in Sydney. Together we are in A State of Trance. Promise!
