Interview Hardstylers.dk: A-lusion
Hello Onne. First of all, thank you for taking the time, to do this exclusive interview. A lot of things have happened in your carrier the last year. You finally got to play at Qlimax, you started making small movies off your tours, you’re hosting the Scantraxx radioshow. You established Second Identity with Scope DJ, and you are now in the making of an album together. Describe the last year, in your own words?
Last year has been for sure one of those years where it’s all about investing in the future. I spend a lot of time on new projects, new techniques, marketing, a new studio and I worked a lot on getting my sound up-to-date again. Qlimax was sort of in the middle of all this. It was a sort of closure of the first 7 years of my career, but in the other hand it also was the start of next coming years. The Second Identity project was something I had in mind for a longer time already. Together with Scope DJ it evolved to the way it is now. I am so proud of what we did in the last 11 months. Traveling over 12.000 km together to get all the 15 tracks ready. (our studios are 1 hour drive apart from each other). We are so excited about the final result.
Another thing that was on my mind for a long time, was doing an own podcast show (A-lusion Hardstyle World Show). But because there is a lot of money involved when you play other people’s music, and do it legally without getting a fine, I didn’t know how to start. Teaming up with Scantraxx and creating the Scantraxx radioshow did the trick. Although it takes up quite some time to produce this show, I really love doing it. Especially when reading all the great reactions world-wide.
