What defines your sound? My DJ sets are distinguished by a curve between Deep House, Tool Beats and Deep Techno. Is a small trip of 4×4 music and its varieties with a combination of the way I am feeling at the moment, the vibe of the crowd and the ambient of the place I am in. 1a.Name three records that never leave your bag. Mr.G – Retrospective Sampler 2 Bazz – Swimmers /(Slice Of Life-SOL5) Various – Chicago Skull /(Minuendo Recordings- MN) What does being a New York artist mean to you? To me is more than a privilege, New York is a very diverse city is one of the few places with unlimited inspiration due to its multicultural scene that continuously inspires me and gives my music exposure and a bigger outreach. Is a city that shows you what hard work really is, while pushing you to keep pursuing your goals as a person and most importantly as a musician. I’ve been a musician since I was 10 years old, I came to this city when I was 20 and felt in love with Electronic Music instantly, and today 9 years later I have been able to take my music to the best clubs in the city. This city has given me many opportunities while showing me that hard work really does pay off. What is your favorite place to play in New York? Output’s Panther Room I love the intimate vibe Panther Room has and the sound is one of the best sound systems in New York City. When was the first time you ever played in public? 2011-2013 Madame X Downtown Manhattan I played at a few private parties in 2010-2011 but Madame X was the venue I made my public debut. Upcoming releases and upcoming dates I have a few releases coming out now in August. My first EP will be released in the middle of August in Good Company Recordings. I have a track in the VA of Nosi Records 10 year anniversary. Recently I released a track on a local label in the Dominican Republic called Phantom Deck Records. I also have a party on August 13th, for the collective I am part of called Endless Love, it will be held at Central Station in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
