Recently we got a chance to speak with DJ/Producer MORTEN. From an early age, MORTEN was around music. At the age of 13 he took a DJ class. “I fell in love with it really fast.”
His mother bought him turntables, which he practiced on every day, and thus began his passion for DJing. “I always knew I wanted to go all the way with DJing.”
He started off playing hip hop and then was introduced to house music. MORTEN plays many styles of music. “I like to take the audience on a journey with me.”
MORTEN moved from Denmark to LA where he loves the culture. He told us that it was hard moving away from his family, friends, and the fan base he made there.
“The best part of moving to LA is that it is multicultural, there are people from everywhere, and I get inspired by people from every part of the world. I like to get inspired by different tastes, flavors, different food, music, and vibes.”
MORTEN has played in many venues throughout several cities including Ibiza and New York. We asked him where are some of his favorite places to play, “I really like to play Marquee and LAVO in New York, LIV in Miami , XS in Vegas. There are a lot of places in the states that are really great. “
He talked to us about what it is like when he is DJing. “ I like to make people dance and to make people forget the craziness they have in their everyday life, no matter what they do. There is so much going on, I can make you dance and explore new music for the time that I have you. I think it’s important as humans to sometimes forget about the world, put our hands in the air, and celebrate something.”
Recently he teamed up with Karma Fields on the new track, “Stick Up” featuring Juliette Lewis. MORTEN told us about his experience working with Juliette, “I was a fan of her. She is so special and unique. She is not your average actress. She is super talented and so passionate at what she does.”
