Interviewed by GBS , September 29.2022

Q: How would you describe yourself in one word?


Q: What was the driving force that got you into Music Production and when?

I have always loved electronic music since I was a child, my dad always made me listen to disco and 90s house music, but I really approached the world of production in 2019. I had friends who often produced music and I often went to record percussion for them. One day I asked myself “ why don’t I have a try myself? Who knows what might happen”, and since that day I have never stopped.

Q: Analog or Digital? And why?

Analog is for sure my favorite. It makes the sound “warm” ...... and I'm a vintage lover so analog 100% !!!!!  

Q: What's your favorite venue and why does it stand out from the rest?

Amnesia ibiza absolutely is my favourite, inside you can really feel all the energy from the beginning to the end ......... the place is really BOMB!!!!  


Q: What makes a DJ set standout from the rest?

The music selection , and most importantly being able to” connect” with the dancefloor........   

Q: If you were to have a superpower, what would it be and why?

Teleportation..... because it would allow me to visit as many places as possible and instantly help someone.
  Q: 1 person you'd dream to have a coffee with?

Michael Jordan , because for me he is a LEGEND  

Q: If you would have been given the chance to do a film score from the past, what movie would you choose and why?

Back to the future”..... As I said before I am a vintage lover , and I love this series. I think I would have found the right notes for that movie.

Q: Recommend a hidden gem in your home country that would fit a perfect rave?

My dream is to organise a rave in Sicily !!! Surely a fantastic place is Paternella located in (Terrasini) north west of Sicily , it is a place by the sea where the sunsets are UNREAL !!!!
