What was your first electronic music event?
My first ever event/concert ever was Nocturnal Wonderland in 2014.
What/who influenced you to attend your first event?
I honestly don’t remember how it happened but, my girlfriend and I just spontaneously decided to go and it has been the best decision we ever made.
What is one moment from an event that was special and why?
I think my favorite moment was EDC last year for several reasons. It was the event where all of my friends were able to attend and share a special moment together for 3 days. It was also my first ever EDC which made it even better.
There’s something special about spending an entire weekend raving in the desert together with the ones you love and call family.
What is your favorite festival or event?
My favorite festival hands down is Nocturnal Wonderland. The vibes are always on point and I always discover a new artist when I go.
What is your favorite electronic song and why?
I think my all time favorite song would have to be “Cinema” by Benny Benassi, there is just something about that song that makes it so special it really gets me in my feels.
Who are your favorite artists?
I’m always changing artists that I like as I’m discovering new music and artists but currently some of my favorite artists are: RL Grime, Slushii, Getter, Kayzo, Boombox Cartel, 4B, Ducky, Mija, Alison Wonderland, Gammer, Dombresky, Porter Robinson, Skrillex, Zomboy.
What are your favorite genres?
I’m a basshead at heart so dubstep is #1 but I also love House, Techno, Drum and Bass, Hardstyle, and Happy Hardcore
What do you feel your “Identity” is in the electronic music community?
I would say I’m part of the experience in this community just being myself and trying to spread positivity out in the world.
Is there anything else you would like to add about yourself for the readers?
