EXCLUSIVE: Ahlan! Live Interviews Poet Name Life, Official DJ of the Black Eyed Peas
Poet Name Life, the official DJ for the Black Eyed Peas’ The End World Tour, is rocking a free concert in Dubai on 14 October at the Desert Palm Resort. But before he does Ahlan! Live’s Shannon Wylie spoke to the Grammy nominee about Fergie, Adele and falling in love…
What's it like being the official DJ for the Black Eyed Peas?
It’s a great experience being able to connect with people across the world. No matter what language, we all speak music.
What was your number one highlight from the tour?
Meeting the love of my life, Lucy McIntosh.
What is Fergie like?
She is an amazing person that has recently recorded the coolest song with me that will be featured on my upcoming album.
If you could perform with any celebrity who would it be and why?
It would be Adele because she’s simply amazing and I have been a fan of hers since the 19 album.
What are you looking forward to most about your visit to Dubai?
I’m looking forward to seeing the amazing architecture and being lucky enough to go on a desert safari with my fiancée. But ultimately I’m looking forward to DJ’ing at Desert Palm by Per AQUUM.
If you’re not playing or writing music what are you doing?
If I’m not doing those things, I’m usually relaxing, drawing, painting or building something new on the web.
When did you first feel like a famous DJ?
I never really felt like a famous DJ! I still feel I have much to accomplish in my career.
Have you ever been star struck by a celebrity?
No, that's not my style.
If you could play music for anyone who would it be and why?
It would be everyone! But seriously, I’d love to play for all the super ravers of the world, or more like raver aliens in outer space that love electro and dance.
Where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes from many different things such as the universe, other producers and DJ’s, family, friends, and always writing songs about my love.
Describe yourself in three words
Musical, energetic and creative. Lucy says vivacious (laughs).
