1. Growing Up

My parents always encouraged my sister and I to listen to music rather than watch TV. No-one played an instrument but from an early age I started hip hop dancing and that was where I built my rhythm and love of music.

2.Inspirations

I grew up listening to a wide range of music. Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder were a favourite though; I always hoped one day to be the guy who made the music for them. At the present moment I am inspired by all the Aussie artists and producers working hard and making it big: Stafford Brothers, Tommy Trash, Will Sparks, et cetera – it keeps me moving forward and motivated to follow in their footsteps. Special mention to Timmy Trumpet for always giving me advice and hope to be the best.

3.Your Crew

Most of my mates are DJs or producers and I am currently part of Lucky Ent agency as one of their artists, so I’m working hard with all the people I know and associate myself with to get lots of work and make great music.

4.The Music You Make And Play

I love playing a set that consists of what’s popular versus what I love. My new tunes are big room electro/bounce so I throw a few of those in along with some trap, hip hop and deep house. I try and give the crowd the best that I can deliver. My new release ‘Gravity’ with Alex Preston is out soon along with my original ‘Party’ soon to follow.

5.Music, Right Here, Right Now

The music scene is moving so fast with so many new great up and coming artists getting massive international support. With so much hype on being the next big thing we are receiving some amazing tunes and performances from artists that we have never seen in the past years. I love watching DJs Kronic, Ember, G-Wizard and Mashd N Kutcher perform as they always put on a show that I can relate to and enjoy.
