Disco Donnie Presents


Ep. 016: Botnek

Offstage is a new Disco Donnie Presents video series that chats with iconic DJs behind-the-scenes at festivals about their backgrounds, rise to stardom, and life on the road. The series is meant to inspire the next generation of aspiring artists, highlighting patterns and ideas that have brought their favorite acts to the pinnacles of success within their respective genres. Each new episode will be posted weekly on DDP’s YouTube channel & Facebook.
Last week, Disco Donnie Presents announced the good-humored duo Botnek as the newest hosts of the interview series “Offstage.” Today we continue with part 2 of Botnek’s saga as they reveal more about their experiences in the electronic music scene. Episode 16 digs deeper into the reality of the industry as the pair address common insecurities among producers and confront the myths about the lifestyles of DJs. “The real thing with the dance music industry that people don’t know is that no one really goes like ‘I f***ing made it.’ Anyone that thinks that – they don’t know. Everyone who is creative is like, ‘man I’m working on this stuff and I don’t even know if it’s any good anymore.’ Everybody second guesses themselves.”
