In 2007 I visit by accident the website http://www.stoneyboy.com and found out that the contactperson for DJ StoneBridge was DaYeene-singer Diane Söderholm. As I am a big fan of DaYeene since 1995, I contact her. One week later they were in Amsterdam and so did I.
I love pure people and believe me they are! So I am following DJ StoneBridge on Social Media and some years later I see lots of hectical schedules, mainly from Sweden to America on and on, like it is just a simple ride around the neighbourhood.
During my 5 day visit of Stockholm, I had a few moments left, so I just asked if my Stoney Boy has some time, but ofcourse I knew what to expect. Strangly 4 times a year he has some days in a raw in Stockholm and guess what. I have luck!
So between my appointment with B Robin & Ms Trez I had a fantastic meeting at Scandic Anglais Hotel.
I was very interested to hear his point of view, when it becomes to his attitude. StoneBridge has fans all over the world and likes to make it personal. So he meeting up lots of people and like to know where he is, so he shows respect to other cultures by reading about the history of the city he visit.
Replying on messages from people make them more interested and make people open up about what you are doing and talk about it to others.
He is not the only Social DJ, Kaskade showed lots of pictures with fans in combination with photos where he has been at that moment and so did the Dutch DJ Chuckie for instance.
You can’t be oversocial is what Sten Hallström has learned recently in Gothenburg. He was totally exhausted, but had to be nice, so he was 8 hours social and realised there is a limit and need to take a step back and explain.
In the past StoneBridge would say that he wants to work with Madonna or Lady Gaga, but if you work with Big Names, they inform you and you become a little worker. That is why he prefer the Denniz Pop Theory. He did not wants to work with Whitney Houston as in that case, he will be just one of many producers. He choose some unknown singers like Backstreet Boys who become famous afterwards.
The next Single will be with a big name after all. Crystal Waters he met up at the Amsterdam Dance Event, 4 years ago. She just came by and has an incredible vibe that attracts him. 3 years ago in November they recorded the song, but finally they are satisfied (and they recorded the finishing touch a few days later than this interview was made) and StoneBridge believed that this will be next big thing after Gypsy Woman and it will be something else than people expected.
Why Stonebridge is so big in America has to do with his US Radioshow in North America. BPM Epic Mix is a 3 hour show and while people are listening to this at clubs for instance, the requests came for bookings. He had the same thinking about Americans as I do. They understand how to be Social and also the English people knows that very well.
