Tommy Craig has been in the industry for a hot minute now making a name for himself playing at Glamorama Bar @ Northside! Tommy Craig is a big fan of Minimal House/ Disco! We recently got the chance to catch up with this Up & Coming Melbourne DJ!
Tommy has some massive plans for the future but if you like what you hear make sure to catch up with him at Northside @Glam every Friday! He will for sure be there! We interviewed Tommy a few days ago & here is his response!
Q & A:
Question 1: When did the love and passion for music become a big thing in your life?
A: When I was younger we used to go to Bali quite a bit and they had those bootleg DVD and CD shops. I would just stick my hand into the CD pile and just grab a couple disks and go and play them. But in terms of house music definitely started with EDM such as Nicki Romero and Martin Garrick.
Question 2: Who inspires you?
A: My biggest inspiration right now has to be DJ Boring. He was the reason I bought my first decks and started to play gigs as just the energy and passion he puts into his sets really inspires me to do the same.
Question 3: Favourite venue or favourite set to date?
A: My favourite venue has to be Glamorama with the North / Side boys. Playing for them normally and their Solar Day Party is such an unreal experience every time and every set gets better.
Question 4: Do you have any upcoming exciting gigs you want to tell?
A: All top secret right now mate but I will say keep your eyes peeled for January.
Question 5: Do you have any upcoming track drops or music ideas for the future?
A: I am working on an EP at the moment which I hope to have released on a big record label ;)
Question 6: Do you have a go to fit for onstage? or do you mainly just wing it?
A: I buy new songs every week but I just play what the crowd is feeling at that time. My goal is to just put a smile on everyone’s face and get them dancing.
Question 7: Are you looking at doing any collabs with future DJ's/ Producers in the future?
A: I’m working on myself at the moment but I have some boys like Anthony Kakucska and Kyle Donohue who I will be working on some tracks with in the near future.
Question 8: Favourite all time tune?
A: Spinning Around by Queen Kylie Minogue. Find me a better song I dare you.
Question 9: Have you ever had a song that cleared the dancefloor?
A: Never in my life. The dancefloor is always full
Question 10: Do you have a certain style you enjoy playing? or is the varitey wide?
A: Mainly Minimal House and Disco.
Question 11: What is one piece of advice you can give to someone starting in the industry?
A: Networking is key. I wouldn’t be at the stage im at if I didn’t go out and meet people. Just go to different clubs and be nice to everyone and you’ll meet the right people!
