Famous music producer DJ Diplo spoke to in an interview with Evening Standard UK and he has revealed about struggled with his depression and mental health.
He claimed that all true artists have struggled with depression. Diplo said:
“Anyone who’s creative, who really is in touch with their creative side, is always going to be in touch with depression. Mostly I’m making music and I’m thinking about business, and that drowns out the emotion. But sometimes…The emotion takes over. And I have to deal with that just like anyone else. When I was younger I was diagnosed with ADHD. It’s not a severe case, but I probably had other things.”
40 years-old DJ also explained how to keep in balance. He continued:
“The really good feelings? You’ve got to suppress them sometimes. The high you get, it’s just like taking ecstasy. The next day is the worst. You have to always balance that: suppress the great feelings because it will make the lows not have such an aggressive touch on your life. That’s not good advice for everybody, and I know enough adult people, friends of mine, who’ve been suicidal and have committed suicide. I see that it’s so common.”
The successful DJ was last seen in the video clip of the viral song ‘Old Town Road’ with Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus.
