Q1. Congratulations on DJ MAG TOP 100 DJS #71 spot. How do you feel about this?
It’s still an honor to be named among all these amazing artists. It makes me feel really proud and I’m sure the best is yet to come.
Q2. Please talk to us about your latest release and the inspiration behind it.
‘Obsession’, released on Musical Freedom, is perfect to play in clubs to get the crowd hyped. I’ve already noticed in my latest sets that it really has the effect I was aiming for when I was working on it. It’s a track with heavy and exciting beats which was something I really wanted for this one.
Q3. How was this year? What was the best experience of 2017?
2017 has honestly been a crazy year. I went to so many amazing places, got to meet up with many fans around the world, released tracks I’m really proud of with amazing people and got to perform at incredible festivals and clubs. Having Tiësto deliver a guest mix for my radio show ‘The Guernica Project’ and my latest release ‘Obession’ were proud moments and performing at Tomorrowland was a huge highlight of my year. So many amazing things happened it’s hard to pick just one experience. Next to that we’ve got som many fun stiff coming up in 2018 – first of all I’m dropping another new track called ’Here With You’, which will be out on KSHMR’s label on January 19th.
Q4. Can you pick 1 or 2 must plays in your sets and why?
Like I said before ‘Obsession’ has grown to be the dance floor banger of my sets so that one has to be in there and of course my collabs with Nicky Romero ‘Only For Your Love’ and the one with Martin Garrix ‘Make Up Your Mind’!
Q5. Since DJ Mag started to vote “Top 100 Clubs”, I want to ask your favorite club and the reasons.
Amnesia in Cap d’Agde (France) is one of the best clubs in the world and having such an amazing outdoor and top notch club in your home country is just perfect. So many fans and music lovers are travelling to south of France to be there each summer so the vibe is really crazy.
Q6. Please leave a message for your fans in Japan.
I love you guys and your support so much, it means the world to me that whenever I perform in Japan I feel so much appreciation during my shows. Thank you for joining me on this crazy journey and I hope to be able to see you guys and perform for you many times in the future.
His Music has encouraged a lot people in the world on his tour and show in big festivals such as Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival. Japan was his second home country as he spent his childhood in there and Japanese comic like One piece, Naruto, Evangerion has inspired this life so far. As a grandson of Pablo Picaso and one of the greatest dance music artist, We are really looking forward to what Florian Picaso will deliver to dance music scene in the future.
