Why did you become a DJ?
Growing up, I was always listening to music and I was always the go-to guy who knew all the hottest new tracks and what to listen. Basically, I was a tastemaker and I figured that that was one of the main jobs of a DJ and I really got interested in using this art in order to take people on a journey through music.
What / Who are your musical influences?
Some people that have influenced me and still do to this day are MK, Roger Sanchez, Joe Kay, and Disclosure.
If you had to put one thing on your artist rider, what would it be?
Definitely mango juice because it tastes great and it is a unique drink to have on a rider.
What is the largest crowd you’ve played in front of?
The largest crowd I’ve played for was 600 people at Terasses Bonsecours in Montréal, Canada.
Besides DJ’ing, what other hobbies do you have?
Eating, producing music and surfing the web for new technology because I’m a big tech geek.
