Interview with DJ Nadi
Say something to us to get to know you better.
My name is Nadi and I'm a d.j. and party organizer in Israel, mostlyin the northern part (Haifa).I've been in the scene here for 6 years now4 of them in the active side (playing and organizing).
What kind of music usually plays in your party?
I tend to the more psychedelic part of dance music meaning psytrance and ambient because it talks to the head more than to the feetand when I play I like to be as psychedelic as possible depending ofcourse on the crowd the place and the atmosphere.
How do you organize a party?
When I go to organize a party the first thing that comes to my head isthe good time and the mental benefit I get from the party and the people who get there does. Usually in the outdoor parties in the summeradmittance is free and so are the water and beers. At the end of theparty we go around with a hat and get money from people to cover theexpenses. The thing I hate the most is telling people how much to payfor a party, if you enjoyed pay as much as you want and if you didn't than I wouldn't be the one to make you pay for it. The situation is abit different indoors when we have to rent a place to make a party inand then we have to charge admittance and for drinks but also then we tryto keep it as moderate as possible. My favorite place for a party will be, how predictable, the beachbecause there the true feeling of freedom takes hold and promises thebest time possible.
Which party do you think is the most successful that you have done? Why?
The best party I made was the fourth one we made ever, it was on thebeach, something like 1000 people came, all through the night there wasa lunar eclipse so the sky was practically almost daylighted, theatmosphere was amazing and we even had a surprise in the morning when d.j. JORG (germany) came and gave an amazing 2 hours set.The party wenton from 1 am to 12 pm.
Describe your first party.
The first party we made was funny.By that time I was only a musiccollector and a party animal but when lousy crowd began to appear in theparties and the vibe was going away, we decided to make our own party toinvite our friends and whoever came with them.About 80 people came mostly close friends as predicted but it was lovelyand lasted from 12 am until 1 pm. How about the other organizer's party that you attended? The main problem we have here in israel is that most of the party organizers in Israel started doing it for the money and not for the funof it and that's when things got ugly because when you lose the feel andconcerned only for the benefits that's when you miss the whole ideabehind the party thing so except from a few good friends who organizenice parties I don't usually attend other people's parties.
Nadi , thanks a lot, Boom.
