In this conversation, we venture beyond the realm of music to delve into the personal side of DJ and music producer Ornery. Apart from his roles as a DJ and producer, we delve into his pastimes, preferred films, ideal travel spots, and more. Come along as we uncover the hobbies and choices that influence the life of this versatile artist.

Hi there Ornery! How’s it going?

Hello! Very well, thanks for having me!

Can you tell us what you like to do to relax? Do you have any hobbies?

I do have a few hobbies, not all of them are relaxing (endurance sports is one of them…) The thing that I like the most to relax is definitely reading: books, magazines, essays, I like them all, on a variety of topics.

What are your top 3 favourite films of all time?

I’m going with “Carlito’s Way”, “Heat” and “The Bourne Identity”.

Let’s say you start a new career, what would you do?

Pastry chef. Alternatively, coder.

What is something that never fails to put you in a good mood no matter what?

Watching stand-up comedy!

Can you describe your perfect holiday?

A mix of big city and nature. A few bike rides, a couple of runs, some swimming. Lots of reading. Very limited screen time.

What is your favourite food?

That’s a great question! It’s almost impossible to name only one though… My absolute top ones are home-made pasta, baked fish, and tarts as a sweet!

What is the one thing you couldn’t live without?

I have to say music here.

What is your dream travel destination?

Right now, I would probably have to say South Africa, with Australia right after. I’ve never been to either, and they’re at the top of my bucket list!

Are you into any sports? Do you have a team that you support?

I’m very much into sports, especially American Football and Basketball. San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Lakers are the teams that I follow most closely! I do like to follow quite a bit of the English Premier League, as well.
