Who are you?
Wayne Hannigan


What style of music do you play?
All things’ house and techno, But It all depends on the gig I’m playing. I do tend to favour the big room bangers filled with piano and big synths or an underground tech house and techno sound.  

 

Where did it all begin?
All began 9 years ago. I didn't own a pair of decks in till 2010 but i was lucky to be giving the opportunity to play in a night club at the age of 15 and learned how to DJ week in week out in front of a crowd. I was in deed checked in the deep end!.

 

Who inspires you as a DJ?
Daft Punk.


What’s the best event you’ve played at?
The first time i was invited to play at Escape has always been the stand out gig for me. Being from Swansea Escape was everything a dance music scene lover could ever want, And it was on my door step. As a 17 year old punter i said i would get my chance to play here one day and when i had the call 3 years on i was i was pretty excited, Plus i had all my friends there. But Ibiza is a pretty special place to play.
