tell us about this mix
The mix is a story line of my life – each part of the mix – from beginning to end.
when did you start djing?
I started djing in my early 20s. Getting familiar with the standard way of mixing by using computer applications such as virtual DJ
My first gig ever was at Contessa Stuto’s party. I didn’t have much of a crowd but I was really glad to embrace whoever’s dancing on the dance floor with non stop tracks that are in my opinion “poppin” for the event .
favorite party ever played:
There has not been yet a party that I’ve played that I’d call exciting.
My favorite DJ at the moment would have to be Dj Rush. He’s a black Chicago based DJ that has been around since the early 90s.
I love Neil Landstrumm. His sounds are very next level and definitely will get any party started right.
pet peeve when djing:
I hate really hate when people stand around me while I’m djing or request a song that I don’t bother to ever play or listen to . It’s really disrespectful.
What’s best compliment you’ve ever gotten?
Best compliment I got was from my friends. They really love my style and taste of music. I usually get things like “this is really next level ” or “this is really good “. I accept any compliment.
Place you’d like to play:
I’d love to play in Berlin, I think my sound would definitely work well there due to the large dance music crowd that they have. Also I’ve heard Berlin has the best techno parties.
Something you want everyone to know about you
I just want everyone to know that I’m not only a rapper, I’m an artist.
