In the last 4-5 years of traveling, Felix has grown a big interest in DJing and collecting Jazz and Swing Music. He has a huge interest in the music and the dances connected to it and is trying to widen his knowledge as much as possible with anything that can help him become a better dancer, teacher and DJ. This interest has always been there since he started dancing at a very young age and was the main reason why he wanted to start dancing. The last 3 years he has been trying to, and getting asked to be involved as a DJ at the festivals that he already is teaching at and the interest is growing.
The last 6 years he has been DJing at events like Herräng Dance Camp, The Snowball Swingala, Orient Lindy Express, Athens Rhythm Hop and more.
He has also done work as a DJ for business parties/exhibitions such as ABSOLUTE ART. (more at absolutart.com)
