When did you start DJing and what or who were your early passions and influences?
I started djing about 15 years ago with hip-hop. I was a cool kid =) inspired by a good friend of my family, he was resident dj in a club in my hometown so I had already one foot in there 😉
What are currently your main challenges as a DJ? What is it about DJing, compared to say producing your own music, which makes it interesting for you?
I love both works, studio is great if u doing something and it works, I dance in the studio and that’s fun. And also to play your own tracks is the best feeling ever! Challenge, every gig is a challenge which makes you want to play your best set ever.
What do you usually start with when preparing for a set?
Depends on the mood, the party, the size of the dancefloor etc. A lot coming together. But I always start with 2, 3 tracks which I really like from the groove! So the train comes to roll and am into the flow 😀
What makes you decide to play a particular record during one of your sets? Is there a criteria other than pure subjectivity, for selecting what to play at a gig?
I try to read the peeps and want to give them the best moments ever.
On Friday 20th of February, Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE you played alongside with Adriatique, tell us about this experience in UAE – Abu Dhabi?
Well, I guess this was my 3rd time at BMI and I loved it every time. But this time was even better, as they changed the sound system, the club was packed and to play with friends is always full. We have been on the same flight so it was a funny trip together – good times! Can’t wait to go back and play.
Any plans to visit the Middle East region soon?
Working on it 😉
