Spotlight: Didier Cohen

Describe your music in 5 words?

Bass, Jungle, Love, Break & Energy.

Any musical guilty pleasures?

I have tonnes. Hit me with some old skool Toni Braxton on those rainy days.. haha

Where do you find inspiration?

Everywhere! Jamaica, Africa, Australia, South America…I love so many cultures and the music in those cultures really inspires me.

First song you ever felt a real connection to? Why?

Man.. I think it was John Lennon – Imagine. I was 8 and just finished watching the Beatles Anthology and when my Dad showed me the song it really hit me. Everything he talked about, yet he died in the complete opposite way…

Current favorite song(s)?

I can’t get over What So Not’s remix of Rufus “Innerbloom”

Favorite song to perform?

Playing my ID’s out.. Its great to see the response…

Wildest show memory?

Man I think that MTV AOS got was crazy because of the energy.. 1000’s of kids moshing and starting a positive riot was insane.. That was real. But also my gig in Vegas at XS was lit. Biggest club i played and the vibe was fire..

If you could be anything but human, what would you be?

A bird.. Flying anywhere I wanted? That’s real right there..

Favorite viral YouTube video?

Charlie bit my finger.. Hands down.

Most insane venue to perform at? Why?

Again, I have to say XS in Vegas. The vibe in that room is insane.. The sound, the people, its just energy..

Favorite city to visit? In the world??

I’m saying LA only because my family is there and the food is on point.

If you could collab with any artist or producer who would it be and why?

I have to say Flosstradamus or Major Lazer.. They also have a big Balafunk and Dancehall influence and are willing to go out of the box..

Favorite dance move?

Has to be the lawnmower or the two step..

One thing fans probably don’t know about you?

That I have actually been producing on the low for the last 6 years and that I’m a huge Cartoon Network fan.. Gumball..

If you could have any other job what would it be?

An actor or I’d be a farmer up in the hills and just live the simple life…

Have any secret skills or hidden talents?

If I told you then it would be a secret.. haha

One thing you can’t live without?

Music

What’s next for you?

Everything.. haha I feel I now have a team around me that supports my dream and I am finally doing what I love for a living. So when you add those two things, who knows what can happen….
