Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE is bringing Andhim & Stacey Pullen to turn up the volume on Friday February 15th and Infusion was lucky enough to catch them both for some Q&A’s!
We asked Andhim…
You have a very unique sound. How do you remain innovative in terms of creating new sounds?
It’s very important for us to constantly develop our sound and come up with new ideas even though it can be really stressful. It’s not easy to forge new paths all the time but in the end it’s what defines you as an artist. But this is also the great thing about being in the studio. We never really know what will happen. There’s so many influences on what our music sounds like in the end. And we want to keep it that way.
What’s your thoughts on the current Dubai music scene?
We really love Dubai. The music scene here grew so fast over the last years and all the great artist are coming here to play. You just know how to party!
What’s the most memorable moment you’ve ever experienced in music?
Oh there’s so many moments. I mean music is the most powerful thing in the world and it means everything to us to see what our music can do to people. We heard the most beautiful stories of fans and their experiences with the music we created. From falling in love to helping in hard times. I think this is the most memorable moment when you realize the impact of the music you created.
What can we expect to see from Andhim in 2019?
We are back in the studio and working hard on our next EP. There’s also some new remixes in the making. So expect a lot of new music this year!
We asked Stacey Pullen….
You have a very busy schedule, being an in-demand DJ all over the world! How do you stay focused?
I stay focused by not losing sight of my history and where I came from. Detroit has paved a long road for me and fortunately I have been in a position to keep the spirit and tradition alive from the Detroit experience. I also get energy from the cities and countries that I play at and it gives me a uncensored reality on what it’s really like to travel around and be a DJ on tour.
With such an extremely hectic schedule, what do you to unwind?
Yes my schedule is hectic but the fact that I’ve been traveling for 26 years has given me an upper hand because I know what to expect I don’t go into this as a person who knows nothing about the travel schedule. I go to the gym and work out at least 4 to 5 days a week I eat healthy and I’m vegan so that keeps me consciously aware of my internal health mentally.
You’ve performed in many different destinations. What has been your favorite location and destination to perform in?
Wow I have many destinations that I can say that I’m my favorite and I think the longer it takes me to get to a Destination I feel that it is my most enjoyable I’ve been to Kazakhstan I’ve been to Bali I’ve been to Ibiza and of course Dubai because I never would’ve thought that I what travel to an Arab country and enjoy myself as much as I have.
What’s the one piece of advice you would give to any up and coming DJs?
I would give the advice to any young DJ to please don’t follow the trends. Keep true to yourself and to remember the history of our music. Just because some DJs are the most popular doesn’t mean that they are the best.
Thanks for your time, guys. We look forward to seeing you in action on the 15th!
