According to the Seychelles News Agency, a DJ from the Seychelles could soon be a Grammy Award winner.
He is known as Clint ‘Maximus’ Breithaupt and he is Disc Jockey based in Seychelles. He is reportedly grateful to have been honoured with a Grammy Award nomination.
“I think if the track wins, I will be overwhelmed and thankful. It’s not every day you get to see your name on the Grammy Award nomination list. One hundred percent I’m going out to party like a mad man,” an excited Breithaupt told SNA in an interview.
Breithaupt said he was taken by surprise when he heard his work had been nominated in the 58th Grammy Awards in the best remixer category. The Grammy Awards are billed to hold by February 15.
The Seychellois has been nominated alongside JES and Shant for the song “Hold On,” in the Fatum remix.
Breithaupt, 36, started his career at a young age as a radio assistant at the local Paradise FM, one of the Seychelles Broadcasting Corporation, SBC’s two radio stations, putting new music on the system, editing music and producing commercials. He now has his own show — ‘The Edge’ – in Lebanon and strong experience in remixing songs.
“The remix has a one in five chance. You have to remember thousands and thousands of songs have been submitted, and coming out in the top five is a big accomplishment on its own,” Clint said.
His home fans are also expectantly excited for the award nomination as some are reportedly tipping him for the award which will hold next year.
