As DJs today are being heralded as the new breed of rockstars, we can see the attention they are subjected to penetrating more and more into the mainstream. Last week a new Channel 4 series aired starring radio DJ Annie Mac, who in her weekly episodes of “Superstar DJs” has the privilege to take a peek into the personal lives of some world-famous DJs. Tonight’s episode is all about mr. Seth Troxler.
Annie Mac is the uncrowned queen of dance music with her own broadcast on BBC Radio 1. The Irish presenter signed a deal with British commercial tv station Channel 4 for a five-part late night television series that would let her follow some of the most successful DJs out there, including Tiësto, Disclosure, Fatboy Slim, Diplo, and tonight: Seth Troxler. Maybe a bit of a surprise for some to see him next to the likes of Tiësto and Diplo, but Seth’s “larger-than-life personality” has probably made him just as (in)famous as the former.

The series will not only give people an insight into the day-to-day hassles of these artists, but will hopefully also shed some light on just how much dance music has exploded over the years and how it has entered the public realm. And with Seth Troxler by your side, you definitely know you’re in for a laugh or two as well.
Superstar DJs: with Annie Mac will air Wednesday night at 12am GMT. You can watch the show live here.
