Slater on actor Ryan Gosling: 'He can slide into my DMs any day.'

What or who inspires and motivates you as a DJ and what makes a good DJ:

• Focus on you, and what you can achieve.

• Try doing things that other DJs and producers aren’t doing to make you stand out from the rest. Trust yourself when it comes to delivering a perfect performance, and don’t be afraid to take risks.

• Work hard to show professional work ethic, staying positive, being a nice person to others, and being happy with who are as a person.

• Be proactive with your career.

• Reach out and make business relationships and friendships.

• Always think about how you can stand out and make yourself known.

• Don’t let people that advantage of you.

Staying in Shape:

“Healthy food and a balanced diet are definitely important for staying in shape, especially when traveling. Drink plenty of water, especially when flying, and dedicate time to go to the gym, ride a bike or go for a walk. Take time for you!”

Fitness Tips:

• Make sure you dedicate time to your mental health and physical health. I’m motivated mentally and physically when I’m in a good headspace; I find I will push myself more at the gym. You need to find that work/life balance which is not always easy.

• Do research online; there are so many websites that offer advice (for) training.

• Ask friends for recommendations, maybe even get a personal trainer to motivate you to push you to achieve your fitness goals.
