It’s funny how living in a big city like New York, we meet all sorts of talent everyday, and those who we never thought we would eventually become friends with.
One of those guys is Christian Rothas, a New York-based DJ, now currently residing over in Europe playing at the hottest nightclubs over there. If you think New York’s nightlife’s decent, you should check out the Euro-nightlife scene.
Christian Rothas is “a master of the art of DJing and producing,” specializes in house-music.
Unlike other people who consider themselves DJs just because they have a few remixes, Christian spend more time producing his own unique flair of sounds.
Q: When you die and god, or whomever you believe in, asked you, “What was the main reason you played music?” What would be the answer?
A: Music was my first love. Nobody will ever steal me from that. Whenever I’m frustrated, angry, happy, music is the space to let my feelings or mood go. My creativity comes from my daily experiences. I always try to fully express myself in my music and absorb it.
Q: What is your favorite kind of genre of music would you consider yourself to be?
A: I started out doing this Hip-Hop/Crunk Music. Now I’m in a good place as a progressive-house music producer. It’s been 5 years and for me it’s evolving into this emotional, deep, Berlin-influenced tech-house music.
Q: Were you a male model before playing music? Why didn’t you start DJing like most of them?
A: I’m just the little brother of a male supermodel. I know I’m good-looking, and I did a show for Berlin Fashion Week, but music is what I want to do. I’ve been into music since I was 8 years old.
Q: If Michael Jackson were alive and he asked you to perform with him would you do it?
A: I believe he was one of the most talented people that ever lived on this planet. So of course I would appreciate it
Q: If you could change something about yourself what would they be?
Q: Where do you like to go out to?
A: I attend parties depending on the line-up. Good music is the most important reason to go. There is so much going on in Berlin, I have to stay home two times a week so I’m not out 24/7!
Q: What’s your favorite city?
A: I love New York City! I feel like going to Tokyo or Hong Kong soon…but so far it’s definitely NYC. For me it’s the city with the most concentrated talented and the most motivation in the world.
Q: What are the best clubs to go out to?
A: It always depends on what music you like and what kind of an experience you’re looking for. For me I really enjoy Wilde Renate or Panorama Bar.
Q: What kind of women do you like?
A: Wow tough question! An open-minded personality, good vibes and a sparkle in the eyes. I like skinny-legs, girls with dreams, who go after their passions.
Q: You had three things to take with you on a field trip to hell, what would be the three things you take with you?
A: 1. I would get some Water so I don’t get exhausted
2. Extinguisher to cool down the End Boss and
3. I would bring my iPhone to capture a square photo and Instagram my kill #hell #yeah #killed #endboss #superman
Q: Who inspires you?
A: Everything and everyone. Joining a DJ Booth to watch the crowd. Walking through the streets for hours, riding a bike, cleaning dishes, making blob fish faces. To stay up to date with music I like to listen to labels like French Express, Exploited, Get Physical, A-Votre, Subdup Records. In Progressive House I just listen to Podcasts on my iPhone while training in the Gym -Nicky Romero, David Guetta and Hardwell Podcast/DJ Mix.
Q: If one day you get lost in the woods with your band members and happen, to walk into a house, which is haunted what song would you play so the ghost starts to jam with you?
A: Daft Punk – Get Lucky.
