What’s the best gig you have ever played?

I had the great opportunity to DJ for Eric Bellinger’s concert in Berlin.  To DJ while the artist is onstage is an unbelievable feeling!

How did you get into DJing?

When I went to high school in Miami, I was watching some guys rapping during the break about life, school, friends and girlfriends.  I was always thinking about what beat I would put under the text – that was where my love for hip hop came from.

When I was partying with my friends, the most important thing for me was to listen to the music and observe the people’s reactions to every song and also to write every song down that I liked.  I didn’t have Shazam at the time, so when I heard a song I had to write down some of the lyrics so I could find it afterwards.  I knew from this time on which song should’ve been playing at which moment.  That’s why my friends always wanted me to regulate the music at every house party or when we were hanging out.  We were always joking around that one day I would be a DJ.  That’s how a joke became a reality.

Who’s your favourite DJ and why?

DJ Snake – I love how he mixes this oriental style into hip hop & trap beats in almost all of his songs.

Hip hop mixed with trap.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on my new mix tape that will have killer beats and some new specials this time.

What’s on the agenda for the rest of 2015?

I’ll take some time to get more into producing and I found some wonderful singers who I would love to work with.

Tell us something weird about yourself…

I hate socks!  Even when it is cold outside – you’ll never see me wearing socks.

I can’t imagine a life without my Vagabond shoes and my leather jacket

What items do you make sure you pack on tour?

Who is your style icon and why?

I love Rihanna’s style.  She always looks different and has the perfect mix between classy, fancy and sporty.

Where do you look for fashion inspiration?

On the streets of Manhattan

What best describes your style on stage?

I love to look sexy – so that’s how you always see my onstage but sometimes I’m in such a sporty mood so I’ll put on an oversized shirt with my sneakers.

What’s your favourite fashion trend this season and why?

I don’t really follow fashion trends – I just where what I like! But I bought some over the knee boots in camel last week and I already know they’re gonna be my favourite boots this season.
