What was your inspiration in becoming a DJ?

My inspiration would have to be the local djs in Arizona from 2006 to 2011. I had the best times of my life there. once I saved up enough money I bought a shitty numark controller and started practicing. I wanted to return the favor to the new age ravers in good vibes not only in the music, but me as a person as well.

Having a specific “sound” is important in the EDM world. What would you describe your sound as?

At the moment right now mix of big room house, future house, and hardstyle. Depending on the mood I am in and the correct atmosphere.

If you could play a b2b set with any artist, who would it be and why?

Blasterjaxx hands down. They play enormous tracks, and bring not just a dj set but a performance. I aspire to be like them.

Do you have a favorite event that you’ve been able to play?

My favorite event I have played would be when I had the chance to open for carnage where I started raving. I mean I played in front of about 1000 kids. It felt like an oldschool rave again, The vibes. The emotion. Everything about it was absolutely perfect.

What about the Electronic Music Scene specifically speaks to you?

The Electronic Music Scene means everything to me. It bleeds positive vibes and compassion through and through. I will stand by this 100% because I wasn’t the most popular kid in school and when i went to my first rave I was accepted and loved for who I was. Nothing is greater than the power of love.
