1. What/who inspired you to start producing/DJing?
I used to to take karate a few years ago, and I participated in the more showy side of it. We did all our routines to electronic music and listening to it made me want to start DJing/producing.

2. How did the Collaboration with Yookie come about?
When I played the last Kingdom Rave they played and that was the first time I met them. We’re going on tour soon so we figured it would be pretty cool to make a song together before we started the tour.

3. What would you say is favorite show (or shows) that you’ve played?
Honestly I don’t have a favorite show, I’ve enjoyed all the ones I’ve played.

4. Who are some producers you would like to collab with?
Megalodon, 50 Carrot, Coffi, to name a few.

5. Who/What would you consider your biggest influence?
I draw influences from a lot of artists so I honestly have no idea.

6.What goals do you have for 2015?
In the next year I hope to get better in my production and play more shows.

7. When you’re not in the studio or rocking a show what do you like to do?
I play a lot of video games. The game I play the most is World of Warcraft.

8. What is one of your favorite track to drop in live sets?
Jump Smoke by Trampa.

9. You have already tagged with the likes of MUST DIE! And TrollPhace. Any Dream tag sets you would like to make happen?
Tagging with JPhelpz would be pretty cool.

10. Message to the fans?
Thank you for all the support that you’ve given me since I’ve started, I wouldn’t have gotten this far without it.
