You may have heard of him already through his mega hit ‘Ride it’ topped charts all over the internet, including social media platform Tik tok. In aid of his catapult to fame we caught up with DJ Regard to get to know him a bit better!
Where are you from and when did you begin making music?
I come from Ferizaj, Kosovo and I started 7 years ago by making mixes. You can find my unique deep house mixes and remixes from the last 4 years on YouTube.
What are your favourite local bars/cafes/restaurants in your hometown?
My favourite places are quiet places I go out to drink a coffee, and restaurant in mountain places including Ujvara Restaurant, Apollonia Restaurant, Che Bar and Annex.
You released ‘Ride it’ over summer and shot to fame through Tik tok with 50 million combined streams. How have you dealt with the success?
Yes TikTok is an app that brings me a lot of push, that did same to Lil Nas too. It’s a wonderful app to push music, especially dance music. I’ve been able to deal very well because of my amazing management team – ‘LEAF Music mgmt’. Everything is going great and I’m preparing to release my next release that I really hope will be liked as much as ‘Ride It’.
What cities has your music taken you to on tour, so far?
We have so many requests from around the world, but for the moment most of the gigs are coming from Australia. For the past few weeks, the track has featured on top 3 in the UK, and many other countries.
Who are your main musical influences?
Avicii, Tiesto, David Guetta, and many other amazing music influences such as Michael Jackson, George Michael and more.
What is your dream music festival to play at?
There are a lot of festivals that I would be happy to be a part of as there are so many great festivals. But I think I would be very excited to be part of Tomorrowland, Ultra Miami and Ushuaia, Ibiza.
What’s coming up for you next?
This year one new release and then for the next year to prepare my first album!
