Why did you become a DJ?
I’m composing and playing music for over 14 years now. I’ve produced different genres like punk/rock, metal, pop, rap and other. I started spinning when I started producing electronic music back in 2011. Today I’m creating eclectic electronic music inspired by different genres and artists I like.
What / Who are your musical influences?
I listen to a lot of different genres like rock, indie, hip-hop, reggae, classic and electronic music (dubstep, future bass, house, EDM, Hybrid trap, etc.). Some of my greatest influences include Linkin Park, Skrillex, System of a Down, Porter Robinson and KSHMR.
If you had to put one thing on your artist rider, what would it be?
What is the largest crowd you’ve played in front of?
Besides DJ’ing, what other hobbies do you have?
I think life is all about experiences and connections and this is why I love hanging out with new people and spending time with friends and family. I also love to see concerts of different genres (I went to Rockfest in Montebello a few times, different ones like AIM electronic music festival, Piknic Elektronic in Montreal and I’m planning to go see Zelda’s Symphony). Also, I practice some extreme sports like skateboarding and snowboarding and I would like to do base jumping someday.
