1. When did you start DJing and what or who were your influences at the time?
I first got into Djing when I was 15 years old, my first mixtape had a 50 Cent Track, Snoop Dogg Track & Mariah Carey Track I used to play it at school on my Mini Disc with a pair of computer speakers that I wired up to a 9volt battery. At that point in time the main influences for me were all the Power 106 LA Djs, I really looked up to them, also my buddy DJ EFX for helping me with my first pair of turntables.
2. What is your best DJ memory?
I’d say hearing my track “Megazord” being played at EDC Las Vegas this past year.
3. Out of all the tracks you’ve spun, which one never fails?
Theres a lot out there that always pop off, I’d say – “This Is Dirty” by DVBBS & MOTi, no matter what venue I play at people always lose their mind for that track, its heavy.
4. Who are your biggest musical influences currently?
Porter Robinson, My Boys at Trapstyle Bass Collective and Blasterjaxx
5. You have been blowing up on the West Coast recently, what has contributed to that?
50% the music 50% the party, I bring something fresh to the scene on the West Coast, I’m constantly finding new ways to bend genres, I’ve even dropped a Taylor Swift Remix in the club before and I think people appreciate my willingness to take risk and be innovative. Not only that but I love to incite madness, everyone shows up knowing its going to be a party.
6. Tell us 5 things about yourself that people don’t know.
- I once hit a 7-10 split while bowling
- An alpaca showed up at my birthday party
- I once traded a car for a watch
- I don’t like fennel seeds
- I used to practice using the force on small pencils and pens
