Whenever I get ready to do my interviews, my goal is to always keep the conversation going. I’ve never had someone start the interview with complete silence, I knew that this would be a fun interview with Darude.
Whether you have been listening to dance music for a long time, or just got into it, everyone knows the track “Sandstorm“. It is such an iconic track that literally brings smiles to people’s faces whenever it is heard. It only makes sense that Darude took “Sandstorm” and made it fit the anthem for Angry Birds: The Mighty League. Check out his cameo appearance.
I had the chance to chat with him before his set at Ruby Skye in San Francisco. I learned about his original nickname of Rude Boy, but that is far from who he is as a person. He told me that he loves partying with the crowd and I got that sense during his live set and the humor he puts into it with handheld signs. Watch the interview to learn more about his favorite food his wife makes, and the causes close to his heart.
I grew up listening to Darude, and it was such a treat to be able to sit down with someone who I consider a Legend, (alive).
