Interview

Interview with Mike Jaxx.

Due to summer time and people on vacation the dj interview’s have been slow but today I was able to make this blog post about Mike, it is not a big one as you might are used to but I hope you enjoy read about him.

Mike is a German dj that’s been around the grid for a very long time more or less been a dj for almost 10 years, he start as a trance dj at Dance Island back in the days when Rich and Roxette where the owners. I do recall these people back in the old days when everyone went to dance island to party, those where the days with shopping and music hand in hand.

*Do you have a certain dj style you spin or more than one?* 

I start with trance for 10 years then for the next 5 years i play deep house – tech house – techno and now by special wish trance.

*You have any dj experience from real life and do you like to tell us about it?*

I have been a dj until 2010 real life then I stopped it because my other job was to busy, in summer i play time to time for people in Ibiza ( private sessions ).

*Before you start your set how much do you prepare for it, and do you spin live and do you use records (LP’s) or mp3 tracks?*

Yes before I have a set I search my tracks to prepare for an event, I use cd and mp3 and always dj live.

*What type of dj gear are you using?*

For Second Life I use native instruments – Traktor 8 and software traktor 2.11
and 2 Pioneer players.

*How do you see your SL in 3 – 5 years, still dj, or have you left this world by then?*

I think i am here is fun for me i think this world is more real than with graphic and moving, Sansar is coming and this is a big jump.

*When you spin do you do it for the Lindens or for the love of music, or both?*

I play for the music for people they like cool good music, Lindens are only for my life here rent or clothes.

Here is a video I recorded of Mike when he performed at Dance Island a while back, a teaser for those of you who never have seen or heard him dj.
