Ahead of his headline performance at our New Years Eve bash, the guys over at the Student Guide sat down with the man himself to discuss his hugely successful 2014 and what we can expect from him on the night.
“Have you got plans for New Year’s Eve yet? Erm… why not?! Egg London are having a terrific night showcasing some of the best DJ talent going – and tickets are still available. We caught up with DJ Darius Syrossian, to see what we can expect from his set!
You’ve been involved in music for nearly two decades – how did you know it was the career for you?
Well, when I used to go to raves when we I was really young and some friends we all used to go out with stopped and I realised this wasn't just going out for me. It was everything. The music, my passion, wasn't just something to listen to while I was 17 - 22, I wanted to make this music swell. I ate it, slept it, breathed it! So I decided to make it my career.
You’re really busy for the next couple of months. What’s life like in between shows?
Well I'm super busy in the studio since I got back from Ibiza! There’s loads coming out like a remix of Sidney Charles and a couple of tracks on the Swiss label Definition:Music, which always press vinyl. There’re also 2 tracks on Hector Couto's Roush label and some stuff for Sante's Avotre label.
My new radio show starts, watch this space as info coming on that soon, and I'm actually busy trying to buy a house! I was going to move to London but I'm a northerner at heart and I love Manchester. Didsbury is very close to Manchester airport which is perfect for me.
What can we expect from you NYE set at EGG?
I have so many new productions I haven't unleashed yet! I've road tested them and they are going down really well. By the time NYE comes around, I'm going to have them all mastered and ready to drop! I’m really looking forward to it; the Egg has upped its game in last 12 months!
A lot better line up, a wicked new Ace sound system, and London in general at the moment is great for partying – it’s like the good old days when the end used to be rocking! Lots of people really loving the music, let’s see what happens…”
