Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, Prospect is a mixer on BBC Radio 1Xtra and member of the DJcity UK team. ELLiNGTONE, who also lives in Edinburgh, holds it down from Wednesday to Sunday in clubs throughout the city.
The conversation focused on the UK scene, but most of the tips and insights are relevant to DJs of all countries. During the discussion, Prospect and Stylus spoke about the impact of the DJcity linkups in the community (around the 13 minute mark).
They explore why so many DJs (and other music industry professionals) suffer from disorders like anxiety, depression and stress as well as the common fact that most people suffering stay silent. They talk about possible solutions, plus ways to help cope with these issues. Both have suffered quite badly from anxiety as DJs and they discuss their own personal experiences with trying to be a creative minded, an active DJ, and battling with mental health issues. Hopefully this will resonate and help a few people.
