    What got you into the scene/dj’ing/producing?
    I really fell in love with the house/deep house sound when I first started hearing it out in clubs around 2012 and just began clubbing regularly since that time. I remember purchasing a dj controller online and playing around with it in my bedroom several years ago now. Ever sicne that time my interest in DJing began. I eventually downloaded Ableton and did a little bit of producing at home but nothing too serious. Things really began to take form when I entered the YOURSHOT international DJ competition in 2017 and placed as runner up on my stage. Shortly after the competition I had my first club set at one of the biggest clubs in Brisbane “The Met” and supported Bag Raiders amongst other international artists. 


    Who has influenced you musically? 
    After attending the infamous nightclub Revolver in Melbourne it really influenced and changed the direction of my sound. I have had a massive influence from many Melbourne DJ’s including Brian Fantana, Boogs, Spacey Space and Jordan Brando to name a few. 

    What are you currently working on?
    Was very happy to put out my debut single “I Gotta Know” last month which had a fantastic response. I am currently working on several projects which will be seeing the light of day very soon. 


    What can we expect in the future from Lifestream?
    Strive to provide listeners with the best experience possible by creating memorable sets, tunes and moments. 

     

    Who have you enjoyed working with/hated the most?
    I have had the pleasure with working with the guys at Frisson Records/Eden. They put on absolutely fantastic events and I have been able to play at their last 2 label parties in Brisbane which have both blown away my expectations.

    What’s your day job?
    I work on the clinical team at headspace (National Youth Mental Health Foundation), primarily doing assessments, screening and case management. I’m also doing some Postgraduate studies which keeps me busy. 


    What do you listen to in your downtime? 
    I listen to such a variety of music in my spare time; a lot of metal, house, triple J amongst others. 


    What do you think of the Brisbane scene?
    I think the Brisbane House and Techno music scene has gone from strength to strength over the past 2 years. Venues like Capulet and events like Syndrome, Eden, Dragonfruit have all blown up in popularity over the past several months which has really shown the appetite for more underground house and techno sounds in the Brisbane music scene and how popular it is becoming. Very excited for the future of the Brisbane house and techno music scene.

      Hey Wouter and Sjoerd! Thanks for chatting with OzClubbers. Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer some questions for us.
       
      Happy belated birthday Wouter, did you get a chance to celebrate in style? Any cool presents or special ways you like to mark the occasion?
       
       
      Wouter: Haha thanks, it was just me and my fiancé since we had a weekend off. We went for dinner and enjoyed the fact that we could relax! I am not really into celebrating my birthday to be honest. Just some good food and a bottle is wine is the perfect setting for me.
       
      The SHOWTEK sound is an evolving quest for perfection. Will this evolve as long as you continue to produce, what is it about music that speaks to you? 
       
      In our opinion, music kind of grows with you as you get older. It’s almost the same as the way we eat food, that also changes.
       
      Sjoerd: A good example is that I turned Vegetarian/Vegan a few years ago, but I could have never imaged that when I was a bit younger, I used to eat so much meat. LOL. This is the same with music, it’s an outcome of our creativity. As artists we kind of want to evolve, that’s the reason why we are doing this, to find and re-discover ourselves in music. It is a translation of who we are. We will always look for something new, which doesn’t mean that we we will always keep changing our styles, we just are looking for new elements that can change the perspective on how we produce music.
       
      Music is a way to express our selves, like sport is to people. It’s just inside us and it needs to come out. It’s very important to find out who you are in life and what your talent of gift is. You still need to work hard for it to become successful, hustle like you are broke. But there is nothing more satisfying than to be able what we love to do in life, make music, perform and travel, that’s what music brought us and we are very aware about the fact that we are blessed to do this.
       
      For all the budding producers out there, what’s your latest tip or tool that is inspiring your sound?
       
      We might have said this before, but the most important thing is to not to be afraid to be different. That’s not only in music, that is in general. But since music can be such a translation of yourself, do what you think is good. This doesn’t mean you should not be open for criticism of advice, but be pure and don’t try to be or sound like someone else.  As SHOWTEK we got very inspired by a lot of other artist, but you need to find a way to create your own signature in your work.
       
      Is there a track that you adore that has been undervalued in the past, but you think should go into the EDM hall of fame?
       
      U96 – DAS BOOT!!! Classic!!
       
      You’re coming back to Australia in November for a show with MaRLo, is there a story behind how you met the trance hero?
       
       
      We met Marlo a few years ago on Stereosonic, he is also Dutch but moved to Australia. We had a good connection and when we decided to do “ SHOWTEK Past to Present “ we thought he would be a good support act since he is very respected in Australia. We think he is a good fit for the night! 
       
      How do you choose who to collaborate or tour with? Is it a style of production, technique, sheer coincidence or someone you’ve been a fan of for years? 
       
      You got to hit it off with someone. For example; We were hanging out with David Guetta in Australia and we had such a good vibe on and off stage. He told us he had a cool vocal from VASSY and he wanted us to work on this song together with him. A few days after our tour we went to The Whitsunday islands, to relax a bit after the crazy schedule. We started working on this song and that was the beginning of the collaboration of BAD. We became good friends over the years and this is the beautiful side of music, it brings people together!
       
      What are the top 5 essential tracks on rotation right now for you personally? What do you love about them?
       
      Kanye West & Lil Pump – I Love It.
      Don’t take the lyrics to literally, but the song has a good flow and it’s just so cool.
      Lil Wayne – Uproar
      This beat is just a killer, good lyrics and one of his best songs on his new album.
      Armin Van Buuren – Blah Blah Blah
      One the best EDM songs of this year, just a very catchy hook!
      Lartiste – Mafiosa
      It might not be on the radio everywhere, but it’s huge in France. Love this song!
      Juice Dreams – Lucid Dreams
      Such an emotional song
       
      You’ve been blessed with awesome success; a rollercoaster of international travel and tonnes of interviews; are there any question that you get tired of being asked?
       
       
      Haha, LOL but YES! The worst is; what does SHOWTEK come from. We like more indepth interviews, sometimes is nice to really think about how to answer a question or where the answers reveal some information that fans didn’t really knew about us yet. The question: how is it to work with your brother has been asked also A LOT!! HAHA
       
      Aussie fans are crazy excited for your Past to Present show in November, can you give us a sneak peak into what they can look forward to?
       
       
      It will be melting pot from the Showtek rollercoaster. We will bring the full spectrum of the Showtek Sound. Basically the best of the best from when we started until where we are now and what is coming!! So for some of our hardstyle fans; YES we will play hardstyle!!! A lot of it hahahah!
       
      With an intense tour schedule, have you had a chance to be a tourist and see the sites when you have visited Australia? Anything strange about the Australian culture?
       
       
      Unfortunately, this tour we will not be able to really see our friends! If they want to come and see us they have to come to the show basically because we have 8 shows in 9 days! Australia is one of our favourite countries to tour and this will not be the last time we are here, so next time we will! We have seen a lot in Australia, we have been coming here since 2009 but tbh, it’s never enough! We love this country for it’s people, culture, food and nature. The spiders and snakes scare the shit out of us tho! Haha. Oh; and what the fuck is vegemite?? That stuff is disgusting!
       
       
      We’re quickly getting to the end of 2018, what’s on the cards for 2019? Are there any special projects or collaborations?
       
       
      Yes, we are! We worked on our collaboration with Yellowclaw earlier this year and hopefully we will be able to release this in the beginning of 2019! We are also working with another hardstyle DJ to do another collab, but that will be a surpise !!!! We are trying to release another album ep next year and this will be full of new Showtek Music! We are working on 25 songs at the moment! So enough to everybody happy!

      Sydney’s global dance export, Go Freek, have just produced their catchiest tune to date. ‘Love Is The Weapon’, steps in an exciting new direction for the electronic heavyweights as they blend their signature offensive bass lines and tech-house percussion with a truly addictive topline. After spending quite some time in the U.S. smashing stages at the likes of EDC and Nocturnal Wonderland and playing European boat parties with artists such Detlef and Latmun, they’ve finally managed to find some time between drinks to get in the studio and deliver this sure hit, out today on Sweat It Out.
       
      "When you work on something long enough you become emotionally attached and your art becomes a part of you. In the case of ‘Love Is The Weapon’, it was in the works for over 8 months. It grew from an idea that was almost thrown away, and has now become our most unique and exciting record to date. I remember having a moment of hysterical laughter and tears when we wrapped up the final mixdown. My mum complained that after first listen she had an earworm for days to follow. We are so proud of this record." Go Freek.
       
      And proud as punch they should be after the career successes these boys have achieved over the years. With multiple ARIA Club Chart Top 10s, including their record breaking #1 collaboration with Dom Dolla on ‘Define’ and #2 on ‘Call Out’ and ‘Put It Down’ in 2016 and 2017 respectively. It comes as no surprise then that Go Freek have been given the nod of approval from some of the biggest names in dance, including Claude VonStroke, Camelphat, A-Trak, Don Diablo, Anna Lunoe, Claptone and most recently support from arguably the most popular DJ of 2018, FISHER, on their previous single, ‘Time’.
       
      With a 12 date national tour around the corner, there is no doubt ‘Love Is The Weapon’ will earworm it’s way into every aspect of your life. Be sure to send this one to your mum.
       
      ‘Love Is The Weapon’ is out now via Sweat It Out.

      An
      YET AGAIN, Brisbane is being spoilt for choice as another great artist is set to return to the garden Capulet this weekend. OzClubbers was lucky enough to have a very candid chat with Jody ahead of this weekend's show brought to you by Lemon & Lime.
      As always with OzClubbers we like to keep it local and ask questions that the fans themselves want to know.  This Q&A was developed in collaboration with our very own Anjuna Brisbane crew!  Big ups to A.B.C Crew Admin Jason Whyte and crew member Riley Keatch.
       
        Artist Name: Jody Wisternoff
      Label: Anjunadeep
      What’ve you got planned for us here in Brisbane on September 16?
       
      Gonna be road testing a lot of new material from Anjunadeep10 which is nearing completion, a few new JW remixes, some classic WOW and just a bunch of hot shit basically! It’s gonna be a day to remember!
      You’ve been to Brisbane a few times – what do you like about?
       
      The parties are always daytime which I’m a huge fan of. This is a concept we’ve really embraced with the Anjunadeep open air events this summer! Capulet is such a fun spot to play, super intimate and a lovely friendly crowd. I usually end up getting kidnapped and going out afterwards too.
      How do you prepare for a set when you’re travelling?
       
      By listening to new music with my ears lol. But seriously, decent noise cancelling headphones are essential (BOSE) and a lot of planning in Rekordbox and Ableton. I generally like to map out my sets beforehand, although things usually change in the heat of the moment…
      Any thoughts on the progressive scene at the moment?
       
      In its broadest sense ie. including deep house/melodic techno/desert music etc, I think the scene is super healthy at the moment, worldwide!  Our Anjunadeep parties are starting to get booked at some of the best venues in the world. Printworks in London coming up for example. The show we did at Mirage in Brooklyn in the summer sold more tickets than a lot of the super trendy hipster parties around at that time.  Asia seems to be an expanding market for our sound right now too. So all in all I feel things are rocking at the moment!
      How is the progressive scene different to other crowds? Eg a techno or EDM crowd.
       
      I don’t really go to many techno parties and I know the EDM crowd is mostly very young. What I can say about the crowds we seem to pull is that people are generally extremely friendly and really care about the music. We get quite a few young ones (recent converts from trance) a few old ravers and everything in between - plus a good female to male ratio!
       
      Our scene here is relatively small - as a DJ do you have any thoughts on keeping the scene alive?
       
      Of course, because the scene is my livelihood pretty much. I can only do my bit really, a small cog in a big wheel.
      You got into music at the early age. What’s around these days that parents could show their kids to get them interested in making electronic music?
       
      I would suggest FL Studio (fruity loops) or garage band as an entry point. However, I did recently install FL Studio on my daughter’s laptop as an attempt to train her up as my young padwan but she only seems interested in playing Simms lol.
      Any work started on Anjunadeep 10?
       
      It’s nearing completion and I’ll be road testing some of it at the Brisbane show.
      Who’s your favourite producer?
       
      Volen Sentir.
      What do you listen to in your downtime?
       
      A lot of oldskool hiphop (1986 - 1990) and Rave (1990 – 1991) eg. before the BPM’s went crazy and it all got corny. Not much country music, although I do love the soundtrack to Crazy Heart!
