How long have you been in the music industry?
Have you always been into Psy?
I started Djing in 94 & moved through the various styles that developed throughout the 90’s. Most types of house, techno & Trance. I found Psy in 2007.
You’ve been in the music industry scene for 22 years. Wow! There must have been some moments you thought “Forget this, I’m getting a normal job”.
If the thought ever crossed my mind it was quickly eradicated by the idea of people enjoying true freedom. “On The Dance Floor!”
What have been the three most important events in your recent career as an artist?
Joining Y.S.E. Recordings was one of my biggest moments. To be on such a prestigious label in the Psy Scene is an honor, including taking the role of A&R. 2nd is The Berlin Hemp Parade 2014 (Germany) is a definitive memory, playing to thousands of people whilst travelling down the streets of Berlin on the most pumping truck hosted by the “Psychedelic Theatre” Team. Lastly is working with Talamasca & recently releasing with Dacru Records. Both truly dreams come true.
