1. What's your summer hit 2012 so far?
In my opinion, DJs who are responsible for the track of this summer are Fedde Le Grand & Nicky Romero. Sparks is the tune I've heard the most frequently during this season and it seems like the crowd is really loving it.
2. What events/festivals have you been to this summer?
On June 30th I attended the Summer City Festival in Gdansk where the main headliners included Chicane, Sister Bliss, Eddie Thoneick, Marco Lys, Lisa Lashes and more. The event was amazing especially because it was located near the PGE Arena where Euro 2012 matches were held.
On July 20th-29th the biggest dance festival in Poland took place - Sunrise Festival in Kolobrzeg. This year's edition was very special because of their 10th anniversary. The ten-day party was pretty varied, the lineup was full of really great artists such as Wally Lopez, Michael Woods, Sander Van Doorn, Fedde Le Grand, Chuckie, Chris Lake, Deniz Koyu and many more. It was also the first time David Guetta played in Poland.
On August 14th ElectroCity in Lubiaz near Wroclaw was held in a beautiful and unique location in Cistercian monastery with sets by Pendulum, Dubfire, Felix Da Housecat, Judge Jules, Serge Devant and more.
3. What are your highlights of the year so far?
Sunrise Festival is the most important event of the dance industry here and people are waiting for it the entire year. There's always 2 stages on the event: the amphitheater and parking space where trance stage is held. This year's production was huge, decorations were looking amazing and the place was really crowded. Sunrise Festival has been on since 2003 so the organisation has become a huge tradition already.

I really love discovering new talents, helping people get into the music industry and singning new music minds to the labels. Tristan Garner is doing a great job so far and he has welcomed two fresh names recently: Frenchman Tony Romera & Duher from Russia. Together they prepared Xtra Lfe New Talents - Vol 1 presenting tracks made by the newcomers.
Braincrasher is the new party project promoting electronic music and art creators established in my hometown Slupsk not long ago. They've already organised two club events in Sopot's famous night club Soho which included sets by Polish masters Chmara Winter on July 20th and Marcin Czubala on July 21st (Mobilee Records, Pets Recordings, Your Mama's Friend). On top of that Braincrasher hits Ustka's beach every weekend where deep tech house parties in tents have become very popular.
I really have to mention the amazing materpiece coming straight from Mark Knight featuring amazing vocals from legendary Skin - Nothing Matters, this time touched by young producer from Sweden - Capa. Go ahead and enjoy the music!
