What was your first electronic music event?

I can’t remember, but the first big one was Skrillex’s gig in Bulgaria.

What/who influenced you to attend your first event?

No one, to be honest. I just wanted to see him play live and meet him which both happened. Interesting times.

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

Every time I see an artist I like for the first time. It’s a moment where I’m like “it really is them, they are here!”

What is your favorite festival or event?

I don’t have one yet, however, I sure enjoy seeing Deadmau5′ cubes. They remind me of my favorite planet Saturn’s poles.

What is your favorite electronic song and why?

“Alone With You” by Deadmau5. It reminds me of afternoons with my cat where I’d be on my laptop doing stuff while he’s sunbathing on the sofa.

Who are your favorite artists?

Deadmau5, Kraftwerk, Rammstein, Aphex Twin, Orbital, Autechre, Test Shot Starfish, and BoC.

What are your favorite genres?

Tech house and techno mostly. I also enjoy ambient music.

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

I’m the “daring” one. I dare to create a campaign to make things happen. I remember when I made a petition for Deadmau5 to play in London as he hadn’t played for a while. It happened a couple of times in less than a year and I even managed to meet him face to face. Magical moment!

I also dare to stand for what I believe is right and say what I actually think.
