                                                   It is essential for you to produce diverse and original material to use in
                                                   your sets. If you had to choose, would you go for music production or
                                                   If we had to choose between the two, it would be producing music, it’s in
                                                   our blood. We breathe and live this from the soul.

                                                   What was it like reconnecting with the crowd after the pandemic?
                                                   Epic, on so many levels. Unity is the best thing ever! To regain that
                                                   feeling of togetherness, and we mean that in its purest form. Everybody
                                                   dancing together, with no sign of separation through religion, language,
                                                   or race. What a vibe!

                                                   You guys have said before that you don’t look at music genres but
                                                   at the intensity of the music. Taking a meter, how is the current
                                                   It’s actually going both ways. If you look at the sound of Afterlife and
                                                   Charlotte de Witte, they’re both ends of the spectrum, the opposite
                                                   ends. We think the scene is just growing and people are becoming more
                                                   accepting musically, which is a very inspiring thing to witness. We also
                                                   think that EDM has opened doors for the market to see it’s not just about
                                                   ravers but it’s about unity.

                                                   Technical perfection and pre-recorded sets versus little glitches
                                                   and sets built on the spot. Do you consider that these are the artists’
                                                   choices or the result of the demands of modern crowds?
                                                   Human error is sexy and real, perfection is far less dynamic. How do you
                                                   read a crowd with a pre-planned set? You’re just playing for yourself, in
                                                   a way. People come to see you perform and give the best you can. Every
                                                   moment and every event it’s different, so the planned set won’t work

                                                   How do you define authentic music?
                                                   It’s really up to the individual who listens to it to decide whether they
                                                   feel it’s authentic. It’s impossible to say, but for us, it’s just about how
                                                   it touches you. It’s really hard to say, music can be performed so
                                                   differently and the reaction to it it’s very personal.

                                                   ‘Destination Unknown’, is there going to be a take three?
                                                   100% yes

                                                   And Pig&Dan’s future, is it as unknown as the destination or can you
                                                   whet our appetite?

                                                   There’s plenty on the horizon. Nobody has a crystal ball so really it’s very
                                                   much a Destination Unknown to us all.
