Darude was in town to party at Club One15 and Havoc for their smoke-free event! Before he sliced and diced on the ones & twos, Darude stopped by KJ103 to chat with me about his partnership with Havoc, the impact his song "Sandstorm" has had on EDM music, his new label and new music, and his thoughts on other people remixing an artists' music.
As a side note, I have to say that this is one of the best conversations I've ever had with an artist. Not only is Darude a really smart guy, but he's been in the business long enough to see it change and grow over the years. I had a great time getting to know him and chatting with him and truthfully, I could have gone another half hour if time had permitted. I hope you enjoy this chat as much as I did talking with Darude.
