We interviewed Cafer Kabak, the winner of Las Vegas Soundclash 2016 where best DJs of the world are selected, about his passion for music and his future goals.
HOW DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME A DJ?
The interest I took in underground music directed me towards electronic music. I began working with computer software. Eventually this hobby became the focus of my life.
CAN YOU TALK ABOUT HOW YOU WON THE FIRST PLACE IN LAS VEGAS?
At the final of the competition held in the capital of EDM Las Vegas, I took a great risk and played a set far from popular music. The sound I played was utterly different from what other countries’ finalists played. As I pressed play button and played the songs, I realised my positive energy passing to people and I received positive feedback. That is when I said “This is it,”.
WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND TO THOSE WHO ASPIRE BECOMING A DJ?
I recommend they view DJing as a source of joy and motivation rather than a profession and think about where they would like to bring the genres they play. After that, they must work hard and with discipline, and make effort to do their best.
