You started spinning at a pretty young age. What was it like laying your foundation as a DJ at the Spin Academy?
Back then it wasn't about loading up a laptop with the latest house anthems or hip hop edits. It was about digging through crates and practicing everyday. My favorite part about the Scratch academy was learning from the big name DJs that would come through regularly.
What were some challenges of starting out young?
Getting into nightclubs! You had to sneak in or carry some other DJs records.
How were you able to rent out lofts and throw your own parties at such a young age? How does this compare to playing the huge shows you do today?
We saved up money and pooled our resources. You can do anything if you have the right team behind you. Today, life is a lot less stressful. Being an event organizer is hard!
Different. Didn't see the parents growing up with the suit and tie in the morning. Nightlife and music go hand in hand. So I was always surrounded by music.
Was it the environment or the music that initially led you to purchase your first turntables at the age of 15?
To be honest I've always had a wide range of taste. Hip hop, 80s soul, Dancehall, and Techno.
