Art & Music
I am Martin Jensen, I’m a DJ, a producer – basically doing what I love everyday!
It happened really quickly, only two years ago I was living in a small town in Jutland, Denmark and I decided to run a mobile DJ scene for a few years because I just wanted to entertain people. And now I am playing these huge festival stages – it’s still kind of unreal, but I am loving every minute.
I had so many influences, it’s almost impossible to name them all – it was always just anyone I saw with a real passion to entertain others; that’s what inspires me most.
I would have to say Smukfest in Denmark - it was kind of like a homecoming, 25,000 people going nuts! It was a blast.
Eat, sleep, play, repeat. The ups are of course seeing and doing loads of stuff you wouldn’t usually get to do. The down would have to be the lack of sleep!
All kinds of pop – from old to new.
I am feeling Axwell /\ Ingrosso & Astrid S at the moment.
Weird sound samples! Picking up sound bytes from daily life and integrating them into music.
The Black Eyed Peas – Don’t Lie
Black, black, black, black and …black.
Deadstock Ltd – they are a small brand from Denmark run by a couple, they only make 200 pieces of each style so it’s quite unique. And it’s black.
It’s mainly just whatever I feel comfortable in.
I couldn’t say that I have one.
I’m into Danish design and furniture, so my next thing will probably be a new couch.
Shoes that I can jump around in!
My camera, my laptop, my in-ears, all my DJ stuff.
SD cards, in-ears, good energy, my rider and my team!
We’ve just wrapped up the European festival season, which was awesome and I look forward to the next season in 2018!
