Holland Days with Jamal: An Interview With PeaceTreaty
We’re proud to present a new section on the Dim Mak blog called “Holland Days with Jamal”. In these weekly series our newest intern Jamal will interview various artists and at the same time learn a lot about the American culture and the Dim Mak family.
Jamal’s second interview is with one of Dim Mak’s own artists PeaceTreaty, who will be playing tonight at Dim Mak Tuesdays. Big Room House fans can be very excited as they’ll also be releasing “In Time Remixes” EP next week on Dim Mak Records. You can pre-order the EP on iTunes here.

Hi guys, could you tell me what you’re doing on this very moment?
Josh: Right now I’m actually working on finishing up this disco track that I started the other day and hopefully it gets done tonight. I guess it depends on the groove and how much coffee I have brewing.
You’re busy finalizing your album which is planned to come out on Dim Mak Records. How do you guys feel about the tracks?
Josh: The tracks are coming out great its gunna be quite the relief when this is all done as its been going on for quite a bit and I know everyone is really anxious to hear it. The best part about the creation of this album was exploring our creativeness to make other genres and experiment with all types of production tricks and techniques but adding our own twist to it. We got to work with a lot of great people which was quite humbling and we couldn’t be happier with how these collabs are coming out. In all we are more then excited to show everyone out there how who we are and actually becoming.
Will you be playing some tracks of that album on February 12th at Dim Mak Tuesdays?
Josh: Of course. Thats probably what I am most looking forward to.
What would you do if Steve (Aoki red.) was standing next to you with a cake in his hand?
Josh: It all depends on the cake. Obviously if it was a type of chocolate cake we join in on a very exquisite candle lit dinner but if it’s like strawberry or some crappy cake like that then anything applies.
How did your date with the mysterious PeaceTreaty girl (where you got the name from) go, back in the day? Please describe it to us.
Ummm it was fun. It was definitely a starting point for me in wanting to actually pursue producing. I remember we would always listen to BBC Radio 1 like Kissy Sell Out & Pete Tong every week and I always thought it would be unreal to actually get one of my tracks played on there as I was just starting this out on my own the time. Sure enough it all came true. Its quite amazing to look back and see some of your accomplishments but really you never ever think about it cause your always too busy trying to look ahead.
Finish this sentence: Big room… House
If you had to pick: Ableton, Logic or FL Studio?
FL Studio but unfortunately we use Logic.
Jameson or Crown?
Double jameson straight on the rocks with a shot of pickle juice.
