Interview This is How You Binge Out Like a Superstar DJ

Tour life moves at hyperdrive when you’re a jet-setting DJ like Todd Terry, Purple Disco Machine, Luuk Van Dijk, and Michel de Hey. So, how do these international globetrotters stay sane as they up the BPM’s? It’s all about balancing your binges. We recently caught up with the guys at W Amsterdam to hear all about their decadent habits. So go on, Treat Yo Self.
