will you bring to the parisian crowd?
Osunlade: Some new tunes of myself and the label and some nice techy stuff!!
D: Do you prepare your sets or do you trust your instincts and energy of
O: I never prepare sets beforehand, I only use the energy of the moment to
create the mood..reading the crowd is the
best skill a DJ has, so I try to use that as my primary tool.
D: Do you listen a lot of electronic music? And do you see yourself as an
electronic music producer?
O: I don't listen to much electronic music, mostly jazz and folk are what I
listen to, I do however consider myself as an electronic producer but not primarily.
D: What inspires you that a track like"Mirror Dance" by Afefe Iku is an
anthem for the super clubs of Ibiza playlisted by minimal superstar DJs?
O: I appreciate the fact that many DJ's known and unknown embraced Mirror
Dance, its a great honor when this happens as it shows the diversity of the music as well as the common grown of all demographics.
D: What are your plans for the future? Is the Burning Man* a
part of your plans for next summer?
O: My plans are to simply continue on my path creating the music I believe in
and yes burning man is a staple in my life, I will attend it every year until the day I die.
For most Goa still conjures up images of neo-hippies, drums and dredds. But that has all changed as the Sunburn festival takes to the white sand beaches and sets up camp, of the big laser and sound-system variety.

Both the North and South stage will be streaming live on Awdio! Read more
This festival crosses boundaries and erases all ideas of Goa as a white hippy camp for neo travelers. They’re still around but they are just a few faces in a diverse crowd. This is their welcome call ‘Calling all fearless warriors, emotionally stunted corporate sucks, internet tycoons, recently single ready to mingle, goody-two-shoes, rebels with and without a cause, black sheep, white sheep; this means YOU!! Hell we’re even calling the Little Green Men out in space if they can hear us!!’
This is all very well but what about us, the people who are freezing their arses off in the wintery side of the world? Have no fear, Awdio is here, so turn the heaters up and warm those frozen toes to the sounds of Norman Doray, Pearl, Armin Van Buuren (to keep up the Goa trance tradition), Gordon Edge, Roger Sanchez and many local DJs.
