The Spanish DJing star is heading over to Sanctuary this week. Here’s what he’s been up to before hitting Dubai
Tell us about the last…
…time you were terrified. Wherever I fly! I’m always frightened when I take a flight and the plane goes through turbulence. The last time was when I went to the Miami Winter Music Conference. But it’s a big part of my job, so I always try to be quiet and relaxed and keep it under control. And, if I can, I’ll try to go to sleep to avoid it. It’s strange because I can sleep on a flight like a baby if there is no turbulence. Otherwise I try to control myself mentally, thinking: It’s OK, I can do it, I can do it.
…time everything changed for you. Changing everything is too big! Can I just do a big change? The last big change was maybe a month ago when I started a special exclusive contract with Space in Ibiza. Space is one of the best clubs in the world – the people who work there are like a family and there is a really good crowd and atmosphere. I love working with Space, so I’m very, very happy that this has happened.
…track you made. It was a remix of Chris Isaak’s classic song ‘Wicked Game’ and it’s been getting really good feedback from people like Erick Morillo and Paolo Mojo. It’s not a remix of the original, it’s a remix of a remake by Lorenzo al Dino and Deep Josh. I always loved this song and I’ve always wanted to remix it. The moment I heard the cover I realised that I had a perfect vision for it, so it was easy to remix.
…time in Dubai. Maybe two years ago – I used to play in Trilogy. I love the crowds in the Emirates, and the way that everyone – the Arabic people, the Asian and the European people – all of them can feel the house music. It’s really special for me because you don’t get that feeling everywhere. I was really surprised when I first played there, because everyone was shouting and celebrating, and going crazy. It was a really good experience for me.
…great party you played. That was at the Miami Winter Music Conference. Everybody was crazy, and there was a pool party with lots of really beautiful girls. And some beautiful boys too, I guess. Literally everyone was really pretty and really cool which is a rare combination.
…amazing movie you saw. Slumdog Millionaire. For me it was the best movie of the last year, it was so deep and realistic. It was a great movie, but I didn’t cry like so many people did – I do cry at many films, but not this one. But I loved the variety: it was a love story and a hard life story and a lucky story – for me there were many reflections of real life in the film. Carmilo Franco plays Sanctuary, April 30.
