DJ Turn It Up


Meet BakSakott, 24 years old from Montreal, QC.
“I just made that playlist from songs I heard in festivals I went to. It's a playlist that has been built over the course of 2 years. Never thought it would get notice by people when I started it.”


What is the soundtrack to your life? 

I Knew I Loved You - Savage Garden

The reason is that the lyrics in that song mean a lot to me and describe perfectly how I met my girlfriend.


Favorite artist? 

My favorite artist would be Tchami


If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive)

It would be Armin Van Buuren because he's the trance legend who has been in the scene a very longtime and everyone knows about him. I'd like to ask him how he still comes up with ideas for a song after being in the scene for such a longtime.


What is the best concert you have ever been to? 

The best concert a ever went to would be Veld Music Festival in Toronto when I first saw my favourite artist play which is Tchami.


Do you have a favorite quote? 

Don't talk. Just act. Don't say. Just show. Don't promise. Just prove.


Do you play any instruments? If not, any you would love to learn?

I used to play the piano, the xylophone and the flute from having music class in highschool.


Do you have a life slogan?

Treat people like you would like to be treated.


What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?

Music because music is the universal language.
