I love music but I can't sing or play instruments
Who were your inspirations as a DJ and/or someone who mentored you?
Learned a lot of basics with James Cole / Musical Youth / United DJs. Followed my passion for Electronic Music with Errrick / Jaegurl / Paul Brandon Live Wire & Pure Coalition, OO-spot, and various other Electronic Promotions through the years.
We know you can play everything, but name two genres that you love to DJ and why?
Electronic / EDM - I listen to it in my spare time and still take time to attend Off-island music festivals. 80's because I grew up in the 80's and that's the most organized part of my library.
Tell us about your favorite DJ moment?
Too many to name, but it is satisfying to watch people move or dance to a song I remixed or track I made.
