New tracks that DJs should know about.
It’s unusual for a DJ to be interviewed moments before he/she hits the stage. And it makes sense: most DJs are in the zone and focused on their set. VICE’s electronic website THUMP has broken the norm, though, and launched a new series called Before You Go On.
For the second episode, THUMP hit BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong with a barrage of rapid-fire questions right before his set at The BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Watch the two-minute interview above to find out the first record he ever purchased, which album influenced his life, and more.
