There is often a celebration after each premiere of the film at the Sundance Film Festival. Since most members of the cast and crew are in town, why would not everyone get together for a good night out? Besides a solid room, the appropriate songs are the only other thing you need for the ultimate party and Oliver Nathan – also known as DJ Spider – is the musical brain behind many of Park City's star-studded gatherings.

This year alone, he had six DJ sets including parties with Julianne Moore, Mindy Kaling, Adam Driver and much more at the time of their last premieres. Even though he practices freestyle once he's launched, each event requires a ton of preparation and his strategy is to always contact a person from the film who can confirm what people want to hear. It's no secret that making music for an audience is not easy, but DJ Spider has been part of Sundance since 2006 and knows exactly how to make everyone dance in the night.

Shortly after the festival, he spoke with Forbes about what the vibrations were like this year. He let us know what your favorite celebs were celebrating and some song selections might surprise you. Whatever the case may be, you will definitely make room on your Spotify for its choices. Read the interview below of the talented musician to better understand his thought process, as well as the details of other ongoing projects.

Isis Briones: How did the films play a role in the music you played at Sundance?

DJ Spider: "I had six totally different DJ sets at Sundance and I also spoke to a panel." I played at premiere parties After marriage, Late at night, The report, Luce and Fight with my family. Then I organized a party for Chase Sapphire cardholders where the energy was out of breath. I usually speak to someone from the film before the premiere to get an idea of ​​the type of music that he wishes. Sometimes it's the producer, the director, the music supervisor or, on occasion, some actors who engage. Then I take their inputs, remove them and play a music that flows well with the things they asked for.

For example, After marriage I wanted to play with these artists with Anderson Paak, Raphael Saadiq, Marvin Gaye, Janelle Monae, Sharon Jones and other things that I considered appropriate as I watched the crowd's reactions during my set. Mindy Kaling's movie Late at night Wanted more than an eclectic optimistic party atmosphere with old-school hip-hop like A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul mixed with rock like The Rolling Stones, Talking Heads and White Stripes. The report wanted me to stay very on the theme of the film with songs about America and corruption like "The revolution will not be televised" by Gil Scott-Heron, with Pink Floyd, Green Day, Rage Against The Machine, Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye and more. Luce had an electronic leadership with Gessafelstein, Jamie XX, Avicii, Major Lazer and Kaytranada. Fight with my family did not choose any artists or particular songs and trusted my vision of the party music, but they gave me an unpublished song by Ellie Goulding to play composed for the film. At the time of the cardholder's party, the format was open. I just played all kinds of genres, from the newest hip hop like Travis Scott and Drake to Outkast, The Police, Blink 182, Prince, which I mixed with my quick mix and my DJing style. "

IB: Can you explain to us how to prepare for a big concert like Sundance?

DS: "I prepare every game thoroughly in advance, but I also have everything freestyle once I play, I've been doing Sundance every year since 2006, so I have a lot of mixes and routines that I have developed over time that I can incorporate into my sets.I will also invent things based on the reaction of the crowd and the needs of the party at any time. "

IB: When you were not making music, what was your most memorable moment at the festival?

DS: "One of my favorite Sundance moments was being able to attend the Wu-Tang Clan after-party. Microphones and men. I grew up listening to them and owning everything that came out, so seeing them in person was amazing. I also enjoyed being able to speak to a panel with other distinguished guests on DJing and music in the movies. "

IB: Of all the games you played in Park City this time, which ones have you noticed the most and why?

DS: "Every year I participate in as many amazing parties as it's hard to choose." I love Vince Vaughn, Stephen Merchant and Dwayne Johnson, so I'm the DJ Fight with my family The first was pretty cool, but this year I think Late at night had the best after-party for their movie. It was such a beautiful cast, the party was optimistic and had good vibrations from the beginning. Plus, they ended up selling the movie to Amazon for $ 13 million – which was 100% because of my DJ set, right? Okay, maybe it was not my decor that sold the movie, but the party was great. "

IB: You also have a good stage name. What is the story of calling you DJ Spider?

DS: "It all started when I was playing basketball in high school and I had to look like a big, lean spider because everyone was screaming," pass it to the spider. "Fast forward to having a college radio show based on underground hip hop and drum and bass music called The basement. It is then that DJ Spider has been solidified as a stage name. A few years later, I won a DJ mix competition in which I was selected for an American tour with Mark Ronson. There is no more return with the name thereafter. "

IB: Incredible, so what should we expect from you now that the festival is over?

DS: "I've got a ton of projects in works ranging from animated DJ stories to a podcast for dads called A tribe called dad. I also produce music and remixes, and I constantly travel the world playing special events and nightclubs. In the very near future, I will participate in Oscar-winning parties, other shows, film premieres and anything that fits my schedule or my concert style. Plus, I have my club residences in Las Vegas and in other major American cities. "
