When DJmag finally catches up with French DJ heartthrob Laurent Wolf, it's no surprise to learn that he's in a train station. Wolf, you see, is permanently on the move - a lover of all the good things in life that success continues to bring him. This year has been no different - gigs in Brazil and Colombia are two particular highlights. "The people were so up for the music. It's great to see," he says, his enthusiasm undimmed by countless years at the top of the DJ game. It's unlikely that 2011 will be any different, either. His new album is in the bag - listening to him extol the virtues of his 'Suzie' track is quite an experience - and he's got a number of tour dates pencilled in already. "I've got a big tour of Asia coming up," he affirms. "Promotion is the name of the game for next year. It's tough but fun. I really want to go to some new countries…" He proceeds to reel off a list of countries he wants to play: "China, Kazakhstan…" Promoters, are you listening?
