EDM: Can we anticipate any surprises or special guests to join you on the stage at E-Zoo?
D&L: We can’t give away to much, but we always try and have a surprise or two in store for the fans!
EDM: What can we expect from your set at E-Zoo? Any new songs, collaborations, etc?
D&L: We always try to prepare special edits and remixes for every show we do- and for a show as special as E-Zoo we will make no exception. Of course we will drop our latest release, "Body Talk (Mammoth)" that we made alongside Moguai.
EDM: Excluding the artists you've already worked with, who are some DJ/Producers you would like to work with in the future? Any collaboration currently in the works we should look out for?
D&L: There's a range of artists we would love to collar with. Some of these are works in process so we can’t give too much away and we really enjoy premiering these tracks during our shows to surprise our fans! You will have to come and check out our set at E-zoo!
EDM: We understand that Like Mike started DJing with more of a Hip-Hop focus. Mike, do you still listen to hip-hop regularly? Who are some of your favorite rappers right now and who would you want to collaborate with?
D&L: Yeah that’s right, many years ago, its what I first started spinning. I still check it out and keep up to date as much as possible. There are several rappers we would love to work with, the legends like Snoop, Dre and Kanye of course. But also, some of the younger generation like ASAP Rocky would be incredible.
EDM: Final Words?
D&L: Thanks for your time and thanks to the fans for the constant support. See you all at E-Zoo.
