What was your first electronic music event?

Madeon’s Pixel Empire tour in Tulsa on Jan 29, 2016!

What/who influenced you to attend your first event?

I fell in love with Madeon’s music and had to go see him live, been hooked on it ever since.

What is one moment from an event that was special and why?

The moments that are the most special for me are always seeing one of my favorite artists live for the first time. Seeing Madeon and Porter Robinson on their Shelter Tour was super special since they’re my two favorite people on the planet. More recently I saw Rezz for the first time and it was incredible. Being hypnotized like that surrounded by some of my closest friends was just amazing.

Madeon, Porter Robinson, Rezz, Excision, and Robotaki are all my favs.

What are your favorite genres?

I love pretty much all EDM, but dubstep does have a special place in my heart.

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

I feel like my “identity” is just me, 100% whoever and whatever I want to be, I never found a place where I can be so openly myself before I found this community and that’s a huge reason why I love it so much.
