Quickie with a DJ: Haydn Hoffman
Favorite drink? Alcohol? Virgin? I usually get a vodka Red Bull or long island when I’m out.
What do you drive? I drive a Toyota Matrix.
What kind of watch do you wear? I wear my Michael Kors Bradshaw in black or Nooka Zub Zot, also in black.
Favorite Sneakers? I’m a shoe fanatic. I just got some UNIF Hellraisers that I love. Creative Recreations are my go-to high tops. I’m also a big fan of Supra, and Bed Stu for boots.
Favorite video game? I don’t play a lot of video games or own any consoles, but I have been playing COD: Zombies on my iPad a lot lately.
First DJ you ever saw live? Where? I saw MSTRKRFT at The Glasshouse in Pomona back in 2008. Felix Cartal and Congorock opened. It made me realize I want to make electronic music, and I was introduced to Ableton Live (via watching Felix Cartal), which is what I’ve used ever since.
First album you bought? Foo Fighters – The Colour and Shape
If you had to have eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? That’s easy – bagels.
Favorite TV show? Cops.
What’s the best advice you ever got? From who? Don’t expect anything from anyone. This is especially true in the music business. It’s a reminder to work hard and create your own luck/opportunities.
Favorite piece of DJ equipment? Why? The APC40 is my favorite. Before I got one, I was using various midi controllers that never seemed to do everything I wanted with Live. The way the APC40 integrates with Live so well has really helped my sets.
What DJ do you want to:
Party With? Borgore.
DJ alongside live? Deadmau5. The guy has a really neat setup and uses Ableton Live too. Plus I love watching people use Lemurs.
