The Social Festival – an interview with John Digweed


We did the interview with John Digweed for The Social Festival.

We’ve seen that you’re releasing your Bedrock Frequencies compilation in July – could you tell us a little bit more about the idea behind it?
Bedrock prides itself on its release and compilation albums, This is another collection of brand new tracks from established artists and some new faces that have impressed me with the tracks that they have sent in, We had a release in December called signals that did really well for us so this new project is called Frequencies – Low – Medium – High

You have previously released albums with Nick Muir but have never released any solo albums. What’s the reason behind this?
I have a long working relationship with Nick that is important to me, and I love working with Nick so I see no need to change that format.

What is your relationship with Nick like? How did you meet and how important is Nick to Bedrock?
I first met Nick in 1991 through a mutual friend and we just clicked, Our first track was “For what you dream of” and we have not looked back since.

Bedrock has been a very influential label for many years now. How difficult is it to keep it to this level?
Not difficult if you are organised and have a good team around you, We know what we are doing these days so just try to make sure we keep the quality at 100% or more.

What are your thoughts on the changes within the electronic music scene over the past 16 years, since you were crowned the No. 1 DJ in the world by DJ Mag?
I have said this many times DJ’ing is not a race and its always been about consistency and delivering your best week in week out, the reason I am still here and relevant is that I care about what I do and make sure I give my fans the best set I can or the best music I can produce.

What are you looking forward to most for the 2017 summer season?
I have the Resistance residency at Privilege in Ibiza every Tuesday which should be a lot of fun, plus a good mix of great clubs and festivals worldwide including Glastonbury and the Social in the UK.

You played with Sasha last year at The Social Festival – how was it for you? What were your impressions of the festival?
The Festival had one of the best atmospheres that i have played in the UK for years, great sound and production plus a crowd that travelled from all over the world.

Do you have any other releases in the pipeline this year that you can tell us about?
I have a new release with Darren Emerson and Nick Muir called – Tracer which is out June 19th which we are all really happy with and will hopefully be a big release for us.
