Sarina asked the artist how his parents felt when he told them he wanted to be a DJ.

He admitted they didn't care when he was younger, but they started to worry when he got older.

Nathan admitted, "It's weird, I've always had the feeling I'd be doing what I'm doing now."

He continued, "It just feels natural to me now."

He said while his parents worried about his future, they were always incredibly supportive of him.

"They always realised how driven I am, and how much I was gonna make this happen."

When asked how they're feeling now that he's a successful DJ, he replied, "Just immensely proud."

"Constantly getting me to sign things and do videos," he laughed.

"Being from a small town it's like kind of flying the flag for the town and everyone's so supportive, and happy, and proud."

Nathan's first ever gig

Sarina asked Nathan about his very first gig.

He confessed when he was 10-years-old, he would charge his family £1 to come see him in DJ in the front room of his house.

"The early days were like just some birthday parties where I'd be getting like 20 quid."

He recalled getting paid, "500 quid for an hour," for a gig in 2015 and he was absolutely blown away.

"I just couldn't believe it. I was used to doing six hours for 80 quid."

"Yeah that's when I realised something is clearly going on here if people are willing to pay me that."
