Being yourself is what will make you survive through anything. If you make music to please someone, it’s the first step in the wrong direction. Always do what you believe in, no matter what people say. Only way to go!
A DJ can’t just play one song. It’s about playing a set, or how you connect songs in those two hours, and where you place them.
Fate does not always seek our consent.
I fear no secret of a person I trust, and he has no need to fear mine. It is part of being friends.
Music is its own language – if you don’t speak it, it’s hard to say what you’re trying to do.
There is magic in patience, you know.
Don’t worry about what might be…Worry about what is.
I usually write my music on a piano, and I really enjoy performing that way, because that actually shows how the music was in my mind before it actually became an electronic song.
A man who trusts in luck better have plenty of it.
I love silence. But I usually only listen to that when I’m sleeping.
The time for desperation is upon us. Let’s play.
I’m not emaciated; I’m wiry. Most women find lean men appealing.
I never feel like I need to make a song that sells 5 million copies; that’s not the point of why I make music. It’s great if that happens, like it did with ‘Clarity,’ but my goal is to always make a better track than the last one.
When you catch other people with a sound like yours, that’s when you know you did something.
There can be powerful magic in acts of desperation.
What I don’t like to hear in music is something has not been thought through: that a sound is just there randomly. I want to make sure that every single little noise that’s in my song is there because it’s supposed to be there.
As we Wizards go, I’m pretty harmless.
What I look for in a voice is for it to be unique. I don’t really care if a singer sings well. Really, it’s about emotion, or being able to sing the lyrics and actually mean it. A lot of singers sing good notes but forget about what words they use.
One agonizing journey down the gauntlet of youth is enough for any man.
I really like working with unique and unknown artists, as they usually bring something fresh to a song.
The problem with my eyes is that they have been famished, but now they are feasting.
People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. BecauHse people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it’s true, or because they are afraid it might be true.
I would never say I will stay in electronic music for the rest of my life. I will always do whatever I feel like at that moment.
There is no such thing as pure good or pure evil, least of all in people.
I’ve been making music for a long time, since I was very young, but at the same time, I’m still exploring what works for me. I feel like I’m just starting out.
