1. What got you into DJing?
I began DJing in 1999 when I was 14 years old. My father introduced me to Cut Killer, a Hip-Hop DJ, and I knew straight away that I had to buy some decks and have fun with them.
2. Your favourite place you have played?
Burning Man, because I played electronic music but also Disco Funk music. It’s a place where you can play whatever you want to and people will follow.
3. Musical influences?
Disco , Funk , Hip Hop, NuJazz , I mean MUSIC in general , it just needs to be good
It’s why you can find samples in my tracks.
4. What have you got coming up?
I have an EP coming soon on Seth Troxler’s label PLAY IT SAY IT (with Leonardo Gonnelli), and a remix for Housekeeping, also due to be released soon.
I’ve also worked on a Loopmasters samplestate pack for the past 4 months, which was a really interesting challenge, it will be out soon.
5. What would you like to get next for your production in music?
I would like a jomox alphabase and the sequencer cicklon!
