In this episode of #TheNewAbnormal, I interview Felix De Laet aka Lost Frequencies, who would normally be found manning a DJ booth somewhere in Paris, Tokyo, Berlin or New York. The global pandemic put a stop to that - but he hasn't sat around watching TV all year. Instead, he's recently performed a spectacular show on the roof of the Royal Palace in Brussels, and has remixed music for the likes of Major Lazor, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Ellie Goulding , and LSD Labyrinth / Diplo / Sia. His first smash hit went to No1 in 18 countries, while he's played a huge amount of gigs at festivals across the world; including Coachella, Tomorrowland, and Lollapalooza, closing down EDC Vegas in spectacular solo style. He also did a massive arena run with fellow chart-dominators The Chainsmokers. So...in this episode, we discuss how Felix got into the music industry, key events along the way, his artistic inspirations, current producer activity (along with an overview of his label 'Found Frequencies') and future tour plans, which hopefully include an epic New Year's Eve gig in Hong Kong. Oh, and why he's just launched his own gin brand. Finally, I have to point out that, in 2020, he's now amassed over 3.5 billion streams. (Yes, billion.) As you do.
