What do you feel your “Identity” is in the electronic music community?

I want people to live their life stress-free and full of positivity. That is the impact I want to make on everyone that I meet, that they have a good time and show everyone the beauty of life.

Is there anything else you would like to add about yourself for the readers?

Making kandi is my way of communication. It’s crazy how one piece of kandi can have so much emotion and feeling to someone when trading. PLUR is what made me who I am today and I couldn’t be more appreciative to the EDM community for introducing me to all these amazing things.
