DNF & DJ Justri Inspire Unity & Hope With 'United We Are' Live Set

 
Today we’re joined by DNF & DJ Justri who come together in a show of unity with their Spotlight Mix. Displaced from her home country of Ukraine, Justri came to Poland to record this ‘United We Are’ set, and the duo laid a pumping tech and bass house set. Make sure to enjoy their special intro promoting peace, love, and respect and then strap in for a rocking hour featuring cuts from the likes of Chapter & Verse, David Guetta, DJ Snake, JØRD, Malaa, Tita Lau, and more!
 
Hi DNF, Justri, thanks so much for joining us to celebrate your special b2b live set! Before we dive into the music, we want to focus on the message of ‘United We Are’ that you’re promoting with the set. Tell us some more about the concept for the recording.
Justri: Thank you for having me, I'm glad to be here again. Yeah, times are really challenging. For me, the world has completely changed since February 24th. My hometown of Kharkiv is near the Russian border and when the military invasion began, I woke up at 5am from explosions in the sky. I did not want to leave the city and it took me several weeks to decide to evacuate. My family insisted that I evacuate away from the war and I decided to go to my sister in Poland. The Polish government and citizens have done an incredible job. They have helped hundreds of thousands of people like me and I am very grateful to everyone! I was warmly welcomed and helped to get to my sister in Krakow. After I took a breath, I decided not to sit still. 
 
 
I decided to call Dawid (DNF) with some ideas. We've always supported each other's music, but we've never met in real life. These days, Poles and Ukrainians are united like never before. After talking with Dawid, we decided that we must act immediately. Through music we must try to inform all people around the world about what is happening in Ukraine, that the Ukrainian people need support. And of course, Poland is a vivid example of such support. This is a union of two states, as a union of two native and not indifferent people, and this is how ‘United We Are’ was born. 
 
Justri, can you update us more about your current situation since fleeing your home and share any messages to our audience?
Justri: Yes, sure! As I said before, now I have a new place of residence, but still the same work, work with music. I continue to produce and release tracks and perform in clubs. Now this is especially important, because unlike most people who were forced to leave their homes, I have the opportunity to continue working, and therefore earn money and send donations to support the Ukrainian army so that peace comes to my country as soon as possible and we all were able to return to our homes. This is my mission.
 
Returning to the question about the message to the audience, I want to say to everyone who is reading this right now that the war is still not over, unfortunately, and that each of you can help in any way you can. You can help by sending money to support the Ukrainian army, shelter a refugee family at home, provide dinner to any Ukrainian, adopt a pet rescued from Ukraine, give toys to children, in the end hug and say kind words to someone who really needs it. All of this gives us great support and makes us even stronger.
 
 
Looking closer at your chemistry, what did you like most about the other’s track selection, energy, or vibe?
DNF: We made this tracklist really fast. We agreed with all tracks from the mix. I think we like a similar vibe of music based on tech house drums and commercial EDM sounds, something which really fits to current trends. I created a special intro for this mix based on the voice from my track “Sorry I Missed Your Call.”
 
Justri: For me this was the first time I have been behind the console since February, also it was the first time I played with someone back to back so at some moments you can even see how my hands are trembling with excitement. It was cool and exciting at the same time, a nice experience. It was very interesting to select tracks that coincided and lined up in one single music story. I think we did great.
 
DNF, can you highlight two tracks that you included in the mix and why they stand out?
DNF: I'm looking forward to releasing my two tracks that we included in this mix. We played them before the release. The remix to my cover of “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” from the really talented duo Relanium & Deen West, and the DNF VIP Remix to my single called “Rude Boy.” The original version was released on Sony Music Germany earlier this year, but the VIP Remix has a new power that you have to check out!
 
 
You’ve each been busy with a few releases in 2022. Talk to us about one of them and what made it special.
Justri: Yes you are right! I started producing just a year ago and by now I already have several releases. My song with Lusso,“Make You Mine,” in just over a month has already hit more than 100K streams on Spotify, which makes me incredibly happy. My collab with the Dutch DJ and producer Nick Raff which is called “Fancy Like” came out just a week ago and has already managed to catch the fancy of TikTokers. Every day they send me a video in direct message where people shuffle dance to our track. Also on June 17, the release of my single “France Vibes” with my own vocals is scheduled. Despite the fact that the track has not yet been released, it has already been supported by Tiësto, Dannic and many other DJs. I am very excited about what will happen next!
 
DNF: I released a special record called “Begging For Your Love.” I wrote this song at a ROBA camp in two hours with two songwriters. I got to know them 10 minutes before the session and we had a great time, with an incredible energy!
 
 
Looking ahead, what’s keeping you excited, motivated, and creative on a daily basis?
DNF: My upcoming release, which is a collab with DJ Antoine and will be released next Friday on Kontor Records.
 
Justri: Many things. You can find inspiration anywhere and anytime. It can be a beautiful vocal in a language you don't understand heard somewhere in the crowd, nice weather or delicious morning coffee.
 
Do you have any plans for the summer that you’d like to share?
DNF: This summer should be dope, 15 shows on the way! Can’t wait to see the DNF Fam on the dance floor.

Justri: It's very hard to make long-term plans right now, but I'm working on it. Better follow our social networks where we will tell you about the latest news and upcoming plans. Stay tuned and let's keep positive vibes only.
