As the world was listening to the ASOT 550 live broadcast from Ultra, EO sat down with some of the artists gracing the decks and stage of the mythical tent throughout the day. First is the energetic and talented Dash Berlin, hailing from The Hague. After three days of non-stop music, Dash Berlin’s pure enthusiasm and genuine charm were a refreshing breath of air and a reminder about why the electronic scene is so amazing. He just announced the title of his new album slated for release April 27, ‘Music Is Life,’ and after chatting with Dash for only a few seconds, it is obvious how he chose to name his album. His musical passion was evident right off the bat and its clear that for him, music truly is life. Listen to his interview and learn that his first experience with dance music came from his older sister and rather than dancing with his friends at clubs he stared straight at the DJ until one day, he asked to join. The rest is history.
