1. What plays in your car ?
Very different! Could be Chillout, Metal, haha, but mostly it´s mixes from great DJs that I like to spy out
2. How did it all start for you?
When I fell in love with music! I always wanted to play Guitar like Hendrix. Now, I am a producer and a DJ sometimes. But there was this longing for music that actually was awakened when I heard Voodoo Child and „All Along The Watchtower“ by Jimi.
3. What is one subgenre you think doesn't get the attention it deserves?
Are there subgenres? Some music appeal to masses others only to a smaller amount - that is not bad its just that the non popular music is mostly a bit more specified….To me there are no subgenera whatsoever….
4. What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you hear it?
Tracks never get old - your taste or your condition might change and so the music you prefer change, but one track I always love is: Acid Phase by Emmanuel Top.
5. As both a Dj/Producer , which side are you on : entertainment or educational ?
I never like to educate - I am there to entertain the people, I want them to have a good time. Who am I to think, that I should educate someone? I always try to play an interesting set and to release interesting music. Sometimes with an experimental aspect but that´s not to educate the people, its made for them to have an experience! People tried always to educate me throughout my life - it was terrible, especially when I was in school!
6. Do you walk around humming melodies?
Haha no, never! But I actually love it when I see people humming a melody - that means that are happy in 99% of the cases. But when you find me doing this, remind me please, then I will go to the doctor
7. Your message to Report2Dancefloor Radio ( including your plans ahead )
No matter what style, shape or what sound you ´re in, everyone is unique but connected with everything at the same time like a drip of water in the vast ocean - so please let us be one and joyful!
I have wonderful collaboration coming along, so stay sharp. I will always go for a Jam El Mar Signature Sound and I hope people will like it. I just teamed up with Markus Schulz Music Group and they are like a great family and I am sure this will be a fruitful collaboration!
And I hope that I will soon have a gig in your city and meet you there in a great club and celebrate a great night of music!
