DJ Micheal's new album is rumored to be one of his last as quoted by Micheal himself 'I feel I had my time and that I produced some great tracks but I want to let newer artist have the opportunity too. I think it will be time soon to end my music career'. However he also stated he wanted to 'go out with a bang' and he wanted to give the readers of DXNCE a tracklist taster. What a great guy.

ARUN DEAN INTERVIEW His tracks are making floors shake. Meet Arun Dean the up and coming dance artist who is making waves in the UK's club scene. For the first 17 years of Arun Dean's life, he had never attempted to make any kind of music what so ever. However, 3 years after that Arun Dean has released 2 albums, been on a world tour and is now one of the UK's hottest artists.

Hey Arun! How's it going man? Hey guys! I am doing great dude. I am really hyped to be here and I'm looking forward to sharing with the readers a bit about my life and how I got to where I am.

So how did it all begin? I had never really been interested in creating music when I was a kid but at the age of seventeen I began experiementing and found I had a talent for music.

What was the first track you made?

What is your favorite track?

Any tour dates planned?

Plans for the future?

Oh man, let's just say it wasn't the best but if you really want to know the first track I ever made was called 'Musica' which had a progressive trance style.

I think 'Angels' is my favorite track. I made it with 'Lemaitre' as a collaboration and had a blast creating it and the public appreciated it too so that was a bonus!

So when was your first break in music?

What is your favorite club?

I am having a complete blast right now, I can hardly think one day ahead. So many great people, so many crazy times. I think I'm just gonna keep doing what I'm doing! Much love to the fans for making this all possible.

I was performing at a club in Newport and a small time producer James Wilson saw me and offered me a signing. Me and him are still good friends to this day.

My favorite club must be 'Thyme' in London. So many great times there! I really love the people and the vibe whenever I go there. The crowd goes nuts and we have a great time!

Yeah dude! I am going on a tour of Europe starting on the 16th of March and ending on the 2nd of May. I am super hyped for it. I have done one tour of Europe and damn it's crazy. It doesn't matter where I go their is always one guy dressed as a chicken singing Gangnam Style into a megaphone.

When did you really form your own style? It was around late 2013 when I came into my own with music as up in till then I had been creating popular tracks but nothing that really made me stand out massively from the crowd. The music industry is tough and you really need something special to make it.

Could you tell us about your new album? Yeah it's going be great! It's called 'Justice' and will have a super unique style. It will also include live recordings and some of my favorite remixes. It will be one to look out for. Hopefully released in June this year.
