What made you want to DJ?
My passion for the music has always been strong since I was a kid. When I was 16, I found the true soul of house music, and since then, my wish was to share and educate the people about the music, and DJing is what makes you able to do that. You can spread and share all your love, it’s something like magic.

What was the first track you bought specifically to DJ with?
Hard question, I always listened to all kind of music and trash, (including EDM) but talking about house, my first track was a true classic from Groove Armada – Love Sweet Sound

Everybody wants to be a DJ these days. What ignites your passion to continue, despite the competitiveness within club culture?
I always try to ignore that fact. Here in my city, for example, there isn’t enough space for talented djs, so our music culture is kinda poor. What I do is just show my passion, follow my heart, and play something that sounds cool to me, always finding new kinds of music. If you’re different, then you’ve got your identify as a DJ.

If you could go back in time and be involved in the club scene of any era, when would this be and why?
UK, in the 90s, of course. All the garage of that era keeps hypnotizing me always when I listen to some of those tracks. Also, many DJs of the scene keep saying that it was the best period of their lives.

Who would be your dream guest on your show?
Grant Nelson, and his awesome mixing skills and music selection.

If you could go B2B with any DJ on the planet, who would it be and where?
DJ Meme, anywhere. He’s a living legend for me.

What was the last tune that was stuck in your head before this interview?
Martin Ikin – Rhythm

If you could have made any of the the records you have played which one would it be and why?
Grant Nelson – Spellbound : The first track I heard from Grant, was love on first side.

What’s your musical guilty pleasure? – Don’t be shy ?
Indie Rock and Pop. It’s kinda rubbish, but some of the tracks have a crazy melody.

If you could only listen to the same 5 records for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Solu Music – Fade (Grant Nelson Remix)
One51 feat. Heidi Vogel – Elevate (Richard Earnshaw Remix)
Frankie Knuckles – Your Love
Reese Project, Joey Negro – Direct Me
808 State – Pacific
