Watch Tiesto, Nervo And More Discuss Career Beginnings In Uplifting New Video
EDM’s biggest names weren’t always in the spotlight. They used to stand in the crowd and stare at DJs performing in awe. But there was a moment, when they got behind the decks, and the rest was history. To inspire all of those aspiring DJs and producers, Your Shot, released an inspirational video featuring interview clips with Tiësto, Dash Berlin, Cedric Gervais, Showtek, NERVO and Will Sparks. The DJs share stories and memories about life before fame and what it was like to play their first set.
Dash Berlin advises "You have to start out with a passion for dance music, that’s far and foremost the most important."
Tiësto adds, "Don’t try to be something you’re not don’t try to imitate other people. Try to make music and play music which you really like yourself, because then it’s real and and it will show off, it will be almost natural, and you will never get bored of it."
Australian DJ competition brand, Your Shot, announced in late April of 2015 that the company was looking for new talent with the launch of a new competition with trance legend Tiësto. Read more about the competition here.
