Tell us a little bit about yourself, what makes you different?

We are normal compared to the rest of the world

How did you get into becoming a DJ?

It stemmed from my passion for music combined with the desire to always experience new & surprising sounds.

Name one track you couldn’t live without.

Wadsworth - lime and pink

Do you produce? If so, where do find inspiration?

I have only just started to produce. My inspiration comes from the clubs and streets of Berlin.

Who do you think is making the most impact on the music scene at the moment?

Probably DJ Koze after releasing his first album for 8 years. I am also a big fan of Bicep

Have you ever performed live?

I have indeed!

What is your most memorable DJ experience?

There are so many experiences playing alongside friends. But playing for a full dance floor is sick.

What’s your most embarrassing DJ experience?

Pulling out the wrong USB right before a massive drop! 

Wotsits or Quavers?


What makes Berlin so special?

It has a unique history with the Berlin Wall which already gives the city a certain flair. What I like most is the free space the city has, full of parks and a lot of green. In terms of music, there is the close connection to Detroit House and Techno, being the first city to import vinyls from Detroit (hardwax).
