BE RIGHT BACK!?: Justin Strauss

“You stay true to who you are and every couple of years the world catches up with you.” Justin Strauss takes part in the BE RIGHT BACK!? project for Zurich’s Zukunft club.

How did the last months shaped your future?

It’s brought to light the fragility of what we once took for granted. That nothing is certain or guaranteed. I’m taking it day by day. Grateful for my health. Music has always gotten me through the worst and best of times, and that has really been put to the test through all of this.

What is it you like the most being in a club?

For me the club is always a release and the connection with people through music. Being a dj and exposing people to new or old music you love is one of my favorite things, as well as going out to clubs and being exposed to music I haven’t heard. The magic and energy in a room full of strangers all connected through music is a very powerful experience.

What’s your favorite experience you had at Zukunft so far?

All my times playing at Zukunft have been fantastic, but for the last two or three I have been DJing the whole night, from the first record to the last, and that is one of my favorite things to do. You really get to go many places musically over a long set and the crowd was totally along for the journey. It felt really special to do that at Zukunft, one of my favorite clubs in the world and I can’t wait for the next time.
