|Video Interview: Venom One at Nature One 2014|
|Written by Dimitri Kechagias|
Nature One, The Golden Twenty was held from 1st to 3rd of August in the natural surroundings of Raketenbasis Pydna, near Kastellaun in Germany. The magical celebration of twenty years of this most important festival was sold out, and it managed to attract more than 72,000 people from Germany and many other countries around the globe. Nature One is the biggest Electronic Dance Music festival in Germany with DJ sets from top national and international DJ's. Through the years on the open air stage at Nature One loyal visitors have the opportunity to enjoy names like Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, Paul van Dyk, Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell, Deadmau5, Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten, Judge Jules, Westbam and countless more.
The design of the larger Open Air stage was futuristic with a superb high-tech design, mouthwatering lighting and lazer effects, plus gigantic screens that were playing impressive videos and footage from the crowd. The line-up on Open Air Stage included a wide variety of DJs from wide variety of music styles. Paul van Dyk, ATB, Axwell, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Danny Avila, Deniz Koyu, Tocadisco, Beltek, Moguai, DBN, Jorn van Deynhoven, and of course the upcoming duo 'Venom One' who rock the club floors around the globe with their latest anthem 'Earthquake', on Coldharbour Recordings.
After their brilliant performance on the Open Air stage I sought an interview with them and I'm glad that they managed to find time in their busy schedule and we recorded this very informative and entertaining interview. First of all I asked about their DJ set on the Open Air stage, and they gave us their wishes for the twenty years celebration at Nature One. Next we spoke about their collaboration with Coldharbour Recordings and Markus Schulz. They recall all the singles they have released so far, and they talk about their current release 'Earthquake' which they consider is their biggest and most important release so far, and they reveal some details about their future releases. I ask about the music influences in their productions, and they tell us that every single has different influences, and they aspire to sound completely different each time.
Furthermore we discuss their forthcoming DJ gigs, and they describe for us their current studio setup and the equipment they use. They make it clear that they don't have other job, and their only occupation is music production and DJ gigs around the globe. I wondered if they might produce other styles of music and the phrase "we don't want to be pushed in one corner" sums it up all. Of course, we talk abut the way they perform in their DJ sets, and how they choose the tracks that they play in them. They don't have a regular radio show or broadcast, but they do guest mixes on other DJs shows. They tell us their opinion about the DJ mag Top 100 DJs list, and then we mention the importance of being active in the social media and be in contact with their fans. Finally they give us their message and promise great new music in the coming months.
Thanks very much to Venom One for their time to record this interview.
