What was your first electronic music event?
Festival-wise it was Electric Zoo in 2011. My first event was Afrojack in 2010 at Club Cinema in Pompano Beach.
What/who influenced you to attend your first event?
My best friends the Lola’s!
What is one moment from an event that was special and why?
Every single event hosts itself with great memories and unique experiences. That’s what keeps me going. The ever-changing aura of happiness unprecedented by the people you meet. Therefore there isn’t one moment more of just happy to live this special lifestyle overall.
What is your favorite festival or event?
As of right now the Cityfox events here in NYC.
What is your favorite electronic song and why?
“Teenage Crime” by Adrian Lux. It presents itself with the nostalgia of being a teenager and the simplicities of being that young with your friends and living a carefree life.
Who are your favorite artists?
I have two favorite artists. One is Tim Bergling better known as Avicii. The second is Porter Weston Robinson.
What are your favorite genres?
Techno and Trance.
What do you feel your “Identity” is in the electronic music community?
My identity is yet to fully be discovered. I hope to be one of positivity in the eyes of the community. I pride myself on great connections with amazing people. That’s why if there’s a connection I gift you with a golden pineapple to carry with you through your adventures wherever they may lead you with the thought of our friendship in mind. I hope to transcend that into a brand of being that into a world of its own event or company for the community.
