Mental health in dance music is being discussed more than ever. Although still a taboo in society, the topic's come to the surface in the last year, with Benga, Midland, Scuba and Ben Pearce among those to have shared their troubles. Benga went into great detail about his battle with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and Ben Pearce cancelled a run of dates earlier this year due to depression. Bearing in mind the relentless travelling that's done, banishing any chance of a normal schedule or familiar resting place, plus the well-known availability of vices at their disposal, it's no surprise that a study pointed out that musicians are three times more susceptible to mental illness. With that in mind, we spoke to eight DJs, including Skream, tINI, Heidi and Patrick Topping, to see how they stay sane when out on the road.
