What would you say the single most vital piece of tech is?
Not to sure I understand the question. I am a turntablist, so if it is technology… the most vital for me would be music production. If you mean tech as in music, I would have to say the beat (the beat is the heartbeat of music and it connects and changes human emotion).
What is that thing that most people don’t know about you? I value time to reflect on the meaning of life and the complexities of things still to learn
If you could give any advice to young DJ’s just starting to get into DJ’ing what would it be?
Always be humble….. No one likes a Dj that thinks too much of themselves. Play out as much as you can, and have fun with it (be serious, but not to serious)… and last but not least …. Be yourself
