New Delhi, May 19 (IANS) Women may be passionate about music, but they aren’t “nerdy enough” to be disc jockeys, says Dutch DJ Sam Feldt.
Feldt, who is currently signed to independent record label Spinnin’ Records, feels one has to be a “nerd” to be a DJ.
“If you want to be a DJ, you have to be a nerd and there are not so many female nerds out there. Females are passionate about it, but they aren’t nerds. We men are bigger nerds. Nerdy jobs are mostly fulfilled by men,” Feldt told IANS.
“If you have to be a DJ, what you have to do is produce. Sit behind a personal computer for hundreds and thousands of hours to understand what you have to do. You get to see very few female programmers, web designers… Women can be really focused, but it’s more about interest,” he added.
Feldt last performed in India during Sunburn 2015 in Goa. He has singles like “Been a while”, “Show me love” and “Drive you home” to his credit.
