EDM Sauce: Was this your first time playing at EDC Las Vegas and what were your thoughts?
Adrian Lux: Amazing! It's amazing how big it was this year. I opened pretty much this year and can't believe how many people I saw. I was able to see the entire crowd going crazy, which was pretty awesome.
EDM Sauce: Where else have you been touring around?
Adrian Lux: All around the world. It's just such a privilege to be part of the dance music revolution or whatever you want to call it. It's just so amazing.
EDM Sauce: Explain your inspiration for your set at EDC Las Vegas?
Adrian Lux: It was definitely special for me preparing this set. I tried to play stuff I really like and not really songs everyone else would play. I tried to really make it my own thing. I tried to keep it away from just a Beatport Top 10 set. I like to make it very personal.
EDM Sauce (Grace): I saw you for the first time in LA at Exchange last year. I remember you played “Weekend Heroes” and it changed me. What was your inspiration behind this song?
Adrian Lux: Well thank you to start. That song is just for when you grow up and you don't care. Your life may suck, but you live for the night.
EDM Sauce: What originally got you into Electronic Music?
Adrian Lux: The whole way was actually through Hip Hop originally. I originally played dnb, then electro and then techno and then Adrian Lux thing came around and it just felt more personal and it became its own thing.
EDM Sauce: Would you ever go back to your old dnb stage?
Adrian Lux: Yea, I think all the musical fazes I've gone through has inspired me to where I am today.
EDM Sauce: What are you working on now?
Adrian Lux: I'm touring all of the time now. I have to produce on the road, but when I'm in the studio I always record instruments or vocals, but I do all of the tweaking on the road.
EDM Sauce: Can you tell us what you're working on now?
Adrian Lux: Yeah my next album. They will be very Adrian Lux sounding. One will be “Wild Child” which is a collab with Markus Schossow. He is actually one of the first guys to actually remix me and I've always had a lot of respect for him. A new talent Elliphant is the other track and collaboration. She is in the music scene for all of the right reasons.
EDM Sauce: Anyone else you like working with?
Adrian Lux: I'm usually very solo, but I may have some things with Thomas Gold, but we'll see. He's a really cool guy.
EDM Sauce: Are you going to check out any sets here?
Adrian Lux: Yea probably Thomas Gold here.
EDM Sauce: So what's next?
Adrian Lux: LA and then Sweden.
EDM Sauce: What's your favorite venue and place to play?
Adrian Lux: It's hard to say.
