This week's Q&A is with British DJ Jaguar Skills, who is performing at August's Reading & Leeds festivals. 

What was your first job in music?

It was DJ-ing, if indeed that's a 'job'. I started when I was four years old, helping my DJ dad. I used to get a crate of records to sort out - then was given to chance to spin them! Cool dad.

How long have you been in your current role?

As a DJ? I’ve been playing that role for 10 years-ish.

What is your favourite thing about working in the live music industry?

The energy you receive from the crowd is unparalleled. The people you meet in this industry are great too. I think that everyone in this game - everyone involved - are my favourite things about it. I'm very lucky to be a part of this machine. 

What is the one thing you would like to change about the business?

I love the music industry. I honestly think that the music industry is one of the most exciting in the world. I wouldn't change a thing.

What has been the highlight of your career so far?

Being able to DJ and hang out in Japan… my dream!  Being able to travel the world - in a mask - DJ-ing to people.  I love this game so much and I've been very lucky

What's the best gig you’ve ever been to?

Busta Rhymes - late 90’s - London Forum. It was a legendary night - it was shut down and he didn’t even perform… but wow! DRAMA! I went to see Biggie Smalls and Puff Daddy at Suberratina once. That was dope.
