1. What are your favorite instruments?
I started out playing piano. So everything with black and white keys I like. My favorites are the Fender Rhodes piano and MiniMoog.
2. How did you become a DJ?
I started out in high school.. Just like to play my records at schoolpartys.
3. Who were your influences?
4. Who are your favorite artists?
This kinda questions are so difficult. I go by some name who really got me inspired to start to make my own music.There is a lot. But to name a few; George Clinton, Prince, Leon Ware, Stevie Wonder, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and A Tribe Called Quest. From the new school, Amp Fiddler, Marc de Clive Lowe.
5.If you were stuck on an island, which 5 records would you choose?
- Miles Davis – On the corner
- Parliament – Motorbootyaffair
- Joe Hisaichi – Princess Mononoke Symphonic Suit3
- Leon Ware – Musical Massage
- Kings of Convenience – Riot on a empty street
- Prince – Black album
6.How is the scene in Holland and what are the most popular sounds?
Holland is very diverse. There a lot of small scenes. But the soul scene is the smallest. So that’s why I’m happy to get those opportunities overhere in Los Angeles.
7. Are you a musician or a DJ first?
I’m a musician first who likes to DJ too.
8.How did you get your alias?
I started DJ’ing as DJ Dunk-A-Felic. Like 4 years ago I shortened it to D-Felic.
10. Analog or Digital?
I like best of both worlds. I’m recording lots of analog keyboards digitally.
If you listen to my music you will hear the mix between analog and digital.
11. Any plans in the near future, we should look out for?
There is a lot coming up in 2012. I just finished an EP with some vocalists from LA. I’m busy how to get it released. I’m going to write new music for a new album. I’m going to do some more collabo’s and remixes and productions for other artists. And try to do as much gigs as possible. Just keep working hard!

“dont you know that everybody here’s a star..”
Somebody called me the other day and left a msg saying “Yo Ski, dont go Hollywood on me..call me back..” I thought to myself..I did Beverly Hills & Hollywood when I was 25 and all the way live (nothing changed..just my age & goals)..Been there and did that.. did it very well I may add. Like the great ones before me..I know that it ain’t here in the states (or LA for that matter)..typical is celebrated over here (especially in LA). The greatness awaits overseas…somehow I already know I will be the dude who ends up with a bombshell half my age in Europe somewhere. Concentration on catalog and the vision..we are aiming for the blue water..Italy & Berlin has shown interest..my summer tour should be interesting..back to the lab.
