My Rider

When you earn most of your money on gigs, like I do, you’re on the road very often. When you’re on the road that much, you’d like every place you visit to feel a little homey. And that’s why the rider was invented. The little things you need to make you feel a little better about being away from home. I’m not going to lie, it’s also a lot about alcohol.

I’ll let you in on my secret rider. I think the most important thing on my rider is the Kinder Egg. It’s tasty and keeps my Tour Manager busy for hours. Secondly, I need Red Bull. I don’t like to drink alcohol until after I’ve performed, so the Red Bull is essential to get me going. Third, I need towels (I sweat a lot, ew), and tooth brush and tooth paste. Those are like the main things that I need. I’ll admit, I might be a little vain, so to me feeling good equals performing well.

Other stuff I have on there is Prosecco and orange juice (so I can take Villa Mimosa with me everywhere), vodka, beer – you know, the usual stuff. Fun fact: I also have salsa on my rider, for internal joke reasons, but not tortilla chips. But everywhere I go, I still het tortilla chips. I guess people think I’ve made a mistake on my rider, and it makes me feel extra taken care of.

People usually think backstage is the place to be. Most of the time, this is what’s going on.

Except when Thomas and Valera stops by. Then this happens.

“Night Train” – JOWST remix

My good friend JOWST, who is now also competing in the biggest musical competition in Europe, Eurovision, has done me the honor of remixing one of my favorite tracks of my own making this past year, “Night Train” ft. Alida.

How we usually work in the studio, I do the selfies while he does all the work. 

Check it out below, it was recently released with a bunch of other amazing track via Armada Trice!

Thank you, Stockholm!

My first ever gig in Stockholm, Sweden is over and done with, and let me tell you – those Swedes know how to turn up. I had an amazing time playing Berns, and I’m so grateful for every single one who took the time to come out and party with me! The club was packed and I got to play a set that was completely next level for me. Had so much fun! On top of that, we managed to squeeze in a studio session in Axwells old studio, Sebjak and I.

Perfect techno-themed weekend!
