Michael Woods talks about Club Papaya

Michael Woods has sailed the seas of Dance music for many years,           working ceaselessly to the top of the pile, where he unquestionably deserves his seat. His reputation as an essential booking for huge           scale music gatherings across the planet is obvious to see by his           continuous schedule of  international bookings. It’s been twelve years since Michael’s    legendary remix of Café Del Mar exploded onto the world stage and unlike many  trailblazers of   years gone by, Michael’s ability to evolve his productions and  DJ sets alike have ensured that he remains a figurehead in the international     House music   scene.

This summer will see Michael joining the army of   world beating acts           that will be creating an atmosphere like nowhere else at Fire           it Up’s new residency: Club Papaya on the  Croatian party beach Zrce.

Michael, what have  been your highlights of 2012 so far?

So far I’ve done         some amazing         shows including two EDC festivals, one in New York and the other         in Las Vegas,         and one other show that really stands out was the Paradiso Festival at the Gorge, 3 hours east of Seattle. The scenery, along with the 25,000 ravers was  totally breathtaking

Have you played in, or visited Croatia before?

No, this is going to be my  first time and I’m totally looking forward to it, as I’ve heard nothing but  great things about it.

How would you describe your current sound?

I’d describe it as  progressive sounds with a little bit of grit!

Where is your number one holiday destination?

If it’s a total holiday with nothing but chilling out I’d have to go back to the Maldives.

You’ve recently had dates in America, how is the           huge ‘EDM’           movement changing events over there for you?

Shows are         getting bigger and         bigger and fans are getting more and more into the sound which         is really good.         Every time I go back to the States there seems to be more and  more hype around EDM.

Who’s your standout DJ/producer of 2012 so far?

Nicky Romero

We’ve still got roughly half a year left, what’s  in the pipeline in  2012 for you?

I’ve got two big         singles to         release towards the end of this summer, one is coming out on         Ministry of Sound         and is a track I released around 18 months ago called “No         Access” but this         version has the vocal treatment from the amazing Ester Dean. The         other one is a         track lots of people have been asking about and it’s a track I  did with Little Boots and is called “I Wish”.
