1. What got you into DJing?I got into DJing about 14 months ago, I was at an Afterparty and these guys turned up with two cdjs and speakers and started playing to there mates and it was going off and I was like that is what I want to do & since that day I have been hooked.2. Your favourite place you have played?It has to be Mint Club In Leeds. The sound system & the intimacy in that room room is bang on.3. Musical influences?House, Disco, Techno. I spend loads of my free time finding new music and artists that inspire me. Music has to make you feel something. For me that’s normal a groove or lyric in a song that changes the whole dynamic of it.4. What have you got coming up?So I have recently just moved back to Ibiza to do another season. This year I have a Residency at “CuckooLand Ibiza” at “Ibiza Rocks Hotel” which I’m super proud to be a part of. Being on the same lineups as some of the biggest artists in the game that I’ve been following for years is a dream come true. I’m also running our own event “In The Know” at Hush.Also have gigs coming up throughout summer for :Mint Festival – LeedsSecret Sessions – IbizaTill Death Do Us Disco – IbizaParavana – LondonI’m also now making my own music so spending endless hours on ableton trying to find a sound I like. I have a few un realised tracks that I’ll be playing out in my sets so listen out for those! Haha5. Any shoutouts?Yes! I would like to give a Shoutout to Neil Evans & Lisa Barraclough for the residency at CuckooLand this summer.Also to Darius Syrossian for being a massive inspiration to me.
