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.
Music is its own language - if you don't speak it, it's hard to say what you're trying to do.
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.
I fear no secret of a person I trust, and he has no need to fear mine. It is part of being friends.
Fate does not always seek our consent.
A man who trusts in luck better have plenty of it.
Don't worry about what might be...Worry about what is.
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.
I love silence. But I usually only listen to that when I'm sleeping.
The time for desperation is upon us. Let's play.
One agonizing journey down the gauntlet of youth is enough for any man.
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.
There is magic in patience, you know.
When you catch other people with a sound like yours, that's when you know you did something.
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.
I really like working with unique and unknown artists, as they usually bring something fresh to a song.
If you're convinced as an artist of what you're doing, the only move is to, no matter what people say or what management says or your best friends say or people on Facebook, do what you do, and people will find their way to it.
I used to be a drummer in a band, and I really loved playing the drums, so I look forward to the right opportunity to do that at some point. Maybe even on TV. Every single live performance I'm doing on TV, I want it to be different and unique.
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.
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.
Whenever I'm in the U.K., people say I have an American accent. Which is, obviously, funny.
