As has become the custom before The Groove Cruise, we like to sit down with a few of our upcoming DJs, just to get to know them a little and to shoot the s*** before we all set sail together on the truly remarkable weekend that awaits us all!
First up in the series of Groove Cruise LA artist interviews, Jochen Miller! We’re very excited to have this mega-talented DJ and producer grace us with his euphoric vibe, and all of his sets are slammed with the best in everything from uplifting trance to progressive electro.
Check out the full Groove Cruise interview with Jochen below!
GROOVE CRUISE ARTIST INTERVIEW: JOCHEN MILLER
1.Have you ever been on a cruise before?
Not in my spare time, but I have played Monday Bar several times, which is a weekend-long EDM party on a cruiseship too, in the Scandinavic area, bit colder then The Groove Cruise….
2. What comes to mind when you think of The Groove Cruise?
How nice the weather will be, how beautiful the ship will be and the people on it, and how much fun we’re going to have!
3. What do you expect to see on the groove cruise?
A bunch of happy, smiling, handsome people getting their groove on like there’s no tomorrow. And I heard someone state “what happens on the Groove Cruise, stays on the Groove Cruise” in a video, so if that’s true things can get pretty wild;-)
4. Favorite track of 2013?
Yet to be released by the end of June, but already my tune for 2013 is my upcoming track “We Have Tonight”, a collaboration with Swedish rock band Dogs with Jeans. I will definitely be playing that on The Groove Cruise, but maybe we should adjust the title to the occasion then, “We have the entire weekend”
5. What are your packing tips? Anything special you are packing for GC? Craziest thing you have done while traveling? Biggest pet peeve about traveling?
Packing tip, learn how to fold properly, I always travel with hand luggage only. For GC I’ll be packing some swimming trunks, shades and sunscreen along the usual. The most energetic and sexy tunes will be packed too, of course! Biggest pet peeve, I guess the lack of a decent internet connection on the road, but hey, seeing so much of the world kind of makes up for that.
6. Where’s your favorite place to travel to in the world?
Anywhere in the US, and by the time I get of this cruise I will probably add “any island along the US coast” to that list!
7. Who would you most like to collaborate with in the future?
In a perfect world I would be in the studio jamming with Coldplay and Daft Punk.
8. If you made a song with a nautical theme what would you call it?
Thanks for having me on board this September, can hardly wait!
