Teffler — You’re a DJ, Music producer, YouTuber…

What led you down this path and tell us more about how it all started?

I was 10 years old when I made my first instrumental. I always had a passion for the art seeing my friends playing the piano and drums in our high school band. In 2012 I saw the legendary edm DJ Calvin Harris playing at the MTV VMA Awards, that’s when I decided I wanted to be a DJ.

Do you have other talents as well?

I’m not a very good swimmer but I can swim haha, also learning how to surf, living in California will inspire new talents in you 🙂  I write the lyrics to all my music as well, which is how I actually started making music in the very beginning.

Which artists have been driving your passion?

A lot to name, but here a few; Calvin Harris, Marshmello, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, Zedd, Don Diablo, Pharrell etc.

Name of your favorite spots to party in the US and/or anywhere else you have been:

Omnia Night club in Las Vegas is probably my favorite place to party. I also like the Wet Republic pool parties in Las Vegas. When I’m in the east coast the Marquee in New York is a great place I love to party.

What has been so far your best DJ experience and why?

I played a concert in Cumbria, UK last year and the energy from the crowd was just… beyond AMAZING!

You live in LA: can you recommend some good places to go out and party?

LA is a lot of fun! The beach towns are amazing for a good time; I particularly love Santa Monica and Hermosa Beach.

For nightlife The Highlight Room and 1OAK in Hollywood are good spots to party at .

What would be your main tips and tricks for anyone who wants to start to DJ?

Be passionate about the music, watch lots of tutorials, study other dj’s live shows, invest in a good dj controller (Hercules makes a lot of those 🙂 ),  and most importantly practice.

Finally, do you have any cool projects coming in the future you’d like to share with us?

I will be featured on the Hercules DJ Academy videos, which is pretty exciting 🙂 the music video for my song ‘CALI’ will be out later this month (September 2019) and my My EP tentatively Come Closer comes out in October 2019, I’m really excited about those !
