Interview: Aside from Music with Mateo Paz

Polish Progressive House DJ and producer Mateo Paz is best known for his quality productions and innovative remixes, he’s also responsible for one of the best Progressive House radio shows around, Gain, which is broadcasted nationally across Poland. Mateo Paz is working incredibly hard to progress his music career even further this year so we caught up with him to find out a bit more about Mateo Paz and what he gets up to outside of music.

What are some of your other interests?

I’m interested in boxing, snowboarding, yoga, meditation and healthy food.

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

Car attendant. As much as I respect people doing that job, I personally think that it doesn’t suit me. I think that’s normal; we all have jobs that fit us and ones that don’t.

What other sort of music do you listen to?

I listen to Frank Sinatra and Astrud Gilberto, but I also love mainstream and underground music. It depends of my mood. It’s not all about genres. In every genre you have good songs and bad ones.

Do you have a favourite book, if so, what?

Alice in Wonderland!

Who is your hero?

In the music world, I would have to say Hernan Cattaneo.

What skill would you like to master?

I’d like to learn to spread positive energy to people around. I would love to always have positive vibes around me.

What piece of entertainment do you wish you could erase from your mind so that you could experience it for the first time again?

I would love to DJ at a show for the first time again. It was scary but at the same time the goosebumps were real.

What city would you most like to live in?

It’s hard to say. Currently, I’m in Dubai and I like it. However, I’d like to have a chance to try all great places around the world. Maybe LA, Miami, or Berlin.

What irrational fear do you have?

Very hard question! I think maybe the fear of love and being loved. There are so many expectations there.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

If you want to be kind for people around you – you have to be kind to yourself first.

What’s the worst?

When you do your art and play music you love and someone tries to advise me about changing style and going into totally new direction.

Tell us three interesting facts about yourself?  

I’m not maybe able to tell three, but there is currently one current main one – I have risked everything and devoted myself entirely to music. It’s interesting but on other hand, really risky.

If you owned a restaurant, what kind of food would you serve?

I would definitely say Italian, especially seafood or maybe vegan. I love vegan food, I can live without meat, but I love seafood.

Who’s your weirdest celebrity crush?

Luckily nobody right now, but maybe Paris Hilton back in the day.

What would you be doing if you had never got involved with music?

I would probably be doing something in the IT industry. I have passion about technology and keeping up-to-date with the newest tech trends.
