DJ Six 4 on Performing for Mickey Mouse on Disney Cruise Gig
What's your favorite track of the moment?
"As Your Friend" by Afrojack and Chris Brown
What other artists have been finding their way into your set lately?
Dada Life, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Martin Solveig, Steve Aoki, and Alvaro, to name a few.
How have you survived and thrived in the local DJ scene?
I would say my secret to my success is always staying humble and knowing my place as an opener or headliner. As I said before, most of the newer DJs don't know how to open a night properly. I think that has helped me gain better gigs throughout my career. I would say that my approach is different from rank-and-file DJs due to the fact I don't play the usual tracks all these DJs have access to.
Any big gigs coming up?
Scott "DJ Six 4" Lane busting out with bottles and mixes.
My next major gig is coming up in April when I will be DJ for the Disney Cruise Lines in the Bahamas
What's that like?
This will be my first tour, so I don't know yet. Just got hired last October, and this will be my first time DJing for them. I've been told by the other DJs it's just like a regular club and I will have tons of fun.
Will you have to flip the script with your normal set, since it's, you know, Disney?
I only anticipate changing my set for the Disney cruise to include more mainstream music compared to introducing tracks to the clubs here in Scottsdale.
Other than dropping hits for Mickey Mouse and company, what's your dream gig?
I would have to say my dream gig as a DJ would be at some big EDM festival. I know that will take a lot more work on my end, but it is my dream.
What's the best thing about being a DJ?
Getting paid to play music for others and party with them as well.
And the worst?
The politics that come along with getting gigs in these towns. Oh, and those crappy songs requests.
