Q&A DJ Mos Deaf

  1. What is your all-time favourite song?
    I have had various ones, but the one I always turn back to is Sunshine from De La Soul. That song always gets me in my heart and soul and boosts my mood up for the day! Also, that beat has me going for days!
  2. What is the most special venue you ever played?
    That must be Pacific Amsterdam, on October 5th, 2019, pre-pandemic. That place and that evening, had a vibe that was unmatched by all the other gigs I had so far. Everyone was so hyped, and I was celebrating my birthday that night as well. Everything came together so well! Big shoutout to Pacific, I would love to play there again!
  3. If you could only play music by one more artist for the rest of your life who would that be?
    That is a tough one. But lyrically and soulfully, I would do De La Soul, to honor the lyrical legend that is Trugoy the Dove. J. Cole and Kendrick are in my top three as well.
  4. What is your last purchased sneaker?
    The Nike Air Max 1 Premium 'Crepe', a great sneaker!
  5. What is your holy sneaker grail?
    Deffo the Air Max 'Crepe', I went looking all over the internet, because they were sold out like crazy! That shoe fits with everything, drip to the max! I do have to mention, as a shared grail, the Patta x Nike 'Monarch' ones. Classy and very casual at the same time. I am still dreaming of the day I will cop them…
  6. Which upcoming release are you excited about?
    The Air Max 1 'Chili'. I have a taste for simplicity, and there are not a lot of shoes that attract me because of my picky style. The 'Chili' release checks all my boxes! Definitely going (or trying) to get my hands on that one. Musically, I am excited about what J. Cole will deliver on his next album.
  7. What is je favourite sneaker to play in?
    The Nike Air Max 1's, or Air Force 1's. They keep me comfortable all day and night long. Best shoes I can wear, both for comfort and style as well!
