Describe your sound in three words: Uplifting, energetic, melodic 

Tell us about your setup: I use four decks and a mixer and sync system that allows me to sync visuals with the music. 

What time do you usually go to sleep and when do you wake up? It’s different every week, but I mostly sleep between 5 am and 10 am. 

Do you have any rituals before, during, or after a performance? I just like to hang and relax in the dressing room. 

Where is the strangest place you’ve ever performed? The Olympic Games in 2004. 

What’s the biggest crowd you’ve ever played to and where? The Olympic Games in 2004.

What is the most fun part of touring? I get to see the whole world, meet great people, see famous buildings, and visit amazing cities. 

Least fun part? Going through airports. 

Do you have a team that helps you when it comes to putting your show together? Yes. I make all the creative decisions, but I have great people around me who execute my ideas. 

Do you have any lucky charms? No. 

What’s on your rider that we might not expect? To flip the question around a little bit, I actually just took Jägermeister off my rider, which most people expect me to have on there. It’s tequila for me now! 

If you could play anywhere for anyone, what would be your most ideal set? I feel like I’m already doing that, playing at festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra, and Tomorrowland. 

What is the biggest misconception about electronic music? That it’s just pushing buttons. It’s so much more than that. 

Personal motto: Live by the day.
