How did you first get into dance music? Who were your early influences?

When I was a kid I loved break dancing & loved listening to Hip Hop & Breaks. I remember spending many hours at home in order to master a dance move :)). I was always surrounded by mixers, mics, and other studio goodies, after several years I started listening to Sasha & Digweed, Steve Lawler, Danny Tenaglia & Global Underground albums, those were my early influences and that’s how I discovered dance music.

How did you score your first ever gig?

My first international gig was at RBMA in Barcelona in 2008, I think i did a good job, I was very nervous but I believe I received a good reaction from the crowd so I think I passed the test ๐Ÿ™‚

Moog Barcelona, Ministry of Sound Malaysia, Uberhaus Beirut, I’m sure I’ll add more to this list after my Global Underground world tour.
