1. Hello David Puentez! We thank you for your kindness and for your time assented to this talk. How are you? How did this year start for you?
Hi Adriana, my pleasure! I am doing very well, my year started like a rocket to the moon. My new releases “Melodrama” & “Time” with Mikael Weermets & Errol Reid receive massive feedback from all the big Djs.
2. How would you describe your style for the persons that didn’t heard your music yet? How would you convince them that you really deserve to be heard?
Its kinda hard to describe my style in one sentence! At least it’s a mix out of all styles like: progressive, techy, minimal, commercial. The mix makes it interesting.
3. In what way is different your style compared with the style of the others artists?
Good question! In my opinion u should come to see my live than you can experience the difference!
4. In your opinion, who’s the best: David Puentez the DJ or David Puentez the Producer?
I love both. Being in the studio doing some creative works and then going to the club and see how all the tracks or bootlegs go off like hell.To play live and making people happy its fore sure one of the best jobs in the world, so I need both.
