There is no one secret to building a career and making a name for yourself within dance music.
Over the years, many artists have exploded overnight off the back of a viral festival song, while others have consistently been releasing quality music that slowly but surely caught the attention of an ever-expanding audience. For Dutch DJ and music producer Adrian Noble, however, the road has been vastly different. Focusing on building a strong community on YouTube as a DJ via his consistent mixes, he has methodically gathered more and more attention, which ultimately led to the recent release of his debut single “Bubble Up.”
Noble’s slow rise shows nothing but strong signs of determination and versatility. When we caught up with him at Amsterdam Dance Event for an interview, he explained how he already had some experience with YouTube and he said his channel was needed was for him to do the actual work.
"I started five years ago when I had just finished high school, and I was like, 'Yeah I need to do something to get my name out there.' I got a DJ set, a table and a camera, and just started recording the video and the audio," Noble said. "So I uploaded my first videos, and I knew that you can’t stop uploading. You need to upload every Friday, or every week, or every month, or every day, just to keep growing. So I just kept doing that and it kept growing and growing."
