This week we bring you a brand new “Interview Series” featuring none other than Mahalo aka Nick Jay. Having put out some killer remixes and originals over the past few years, Mahalo is gearing up for what looks to be his biggest year yet. He’s been taking the stage at various events across the country and we get the feeling he’s just getting started. Enjoy an exclusive Q&A we did with him as well as his track “Current Mood” below. Don’t forget…no pineapple on your pizza, kids.
Your growth in 2016 has led to a busy 2017, how has the year been for you?
Mahalo: While it is definitely the busiest year I’ve ever had it has also been my favorite so far. Lots happening to be excited about!
Is it difficult to balance your music/work-life with your personal one?
Mahalo: Absolutely. I wouldn’t say it’s anything unmanageable but it’s definitely becoming more and more difficult to make time for the more leisurely things in life.
Big shows are becoming a regular thing for you, anything special coming up?
Mahalo: This year I’m performing at EDC which is very special for me. I’ve been going to EDC since I was teenager so it’s a major milestone for me as an artist.
Is pineapple on pizza a good or bad thing? (we know, we know)
Mahalo: A token Hawaii question, huh Alex? Haha dude never put pineapple on your pizza.
Any upcoming releases?
Mahalo: My new track “Heaven” drops the 23rd of June with Adam from Eton Messy/Blonde’s new imprint, Night Beast Records and as part of a joint venture with Perfect Havoc. Very excited for this one.
Mahalo: Lots! but it’s still too early to announce so all I can say is stay tuned 🙂
