From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads: The Secret DJ's Guide to Surviving Dance Music is yje true story of DJing, from an authentic voice speaking to this scene. The Secret DJ will give hints and guide newbies, as well as telling it as it really is for most DJs. The secret DJ never set out to be "a DJ", no-one did in the 80s unless you wanted to get on the radio and possibly illegally close to children. Djing was about the connection music had to something ephemeral and glamorous that happened to other people very far away and for everyone, it started with radio empowering nerds. Wherever they were. However nerdy. If you are young, just replace the word 'radio' with 'internet'. The Dance scene has lasted for 30 years but has enjoyed very little coverage from those that have lived it. It is huge. It's the world's biggest youth movement bar-none and unlike it's grandfather, the sixties, it's still going 30 years later and only growing larger. This book is not an instruction manual - more a cautionary tale that may illuminate anyone who has harboured ambition to pack a dancefloor...

Le glamour, les fêtes, l'argent, le sexe, les voyages luxueux... Voilà l'image que le public se fait de la carrière d'un DJ à succès. Mais derrière le glamour, se dissimulent des côtés sombres : l'argent, l'alcool et les excès, la solitude et un entourage souvent toxique et intéressé. Pour la première fois, un DJ de réputation mondiale décide de briser un tabou en racontant la vie de ces professionnels de la musique. Depuis le suicide d'Avicii en 2018, qui a ébranlé tout le show-business, les langues se délient sur un métier où l'on peut très rapidement se brûler les ailes. Ce document édifiant met en lumière le rythme de vie surhumain d'un DJ qui doit toujours être au top pour se produire devant les foules d'Ibiza, de New York et sur les scènes des plus grands festivals. Une vie que l'on découvre loin, bien loin, des paillettes et du glamour des dancefloors.

The glamour, the parties, the excess, the highs: and, of course, the lows. The life of an international DJ playing at the most exotic destinations worldwide, in the most precarious of psychic circumstances, is rich to the point of toxicity. A globally-known DJ choosing to keep his identity secret takes us on a journey into the heart of life lived in the hedonistic fast lane of club culture for 30 years. Whether playing to 10,000 fans in Ibiza or in a local pub function room, this is a cautionary tale for the rave generation whose days of pills, thrills, and bellyaches are behind them. It may, as well, contain advice: though we cannot advise that it is always followed. This book is not an instruction manual - more a cautionary tale that may illuminate anyone who has harboured ambition to pack a dancefloor...
