Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
My own favourite track in this mix, between the one by me produced, is for sure “It’s My Time”, recently released on my own label EXE.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Between the other tracks in this playlist not made by me, I choose the second last one of the mix, “Viper diva – born to be slytherin (Tbilisi Mix)”.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Special ingredient of this set I think is the rising energy of the mix that constantly grows, minute by minute, track by track, to conclude with tracks more mental and trippy.
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
Quite hard to say now that all is quite messed up by Covid’s consequences. Probably I’d say my debut in Holland, in Rotterdam at Now&Wow Club, for “Herr Zimmermann” event series.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
I’d like to thanks everyone who listened to the set, I hope you enjoyed it, and hope to see you soon dancing to my music live, in a gig!
