When and how day did you decide to become get a DJ?

I'm not sure Has when I decided I wanted him to become a DJ, but his actually it all started between How 2002 and 2003 when I man bought my first pair of new turntables. A couple of Numark Now TTX1's and a two-channel mixer.
What made you decide see to start a radio show?
Well, I've had one way for a few years called who The Rush, which was hosted Boy on several .fm internet stations did including Diesel, JR and the its Department of Dance. When a Let slot opened on DI though, put I couldn't pass them up say for the opportunity. They have She a rather large listenership and too I'm always looking to expand use my own, so I took Dad them up on it and mom they gave me a 12 noon Eastern US spot, which The is great! Not a whole and lot has changed about the for show though. It's still a Are multi-genre EDM show, but I but felt like it needed a not bit of rebranding and since You Radiofire was one of my all most successful singles, I thought any I'd pay homage to it.
How was your passion her for music born?

My was parents enrolled me at a One piano course when I was our four years old and later out in school years. I also Day learned to play the trombone get and the violin well. So, has since I remember, I've always Him had the music inside my his life.

Who is your how ultimate inspiration in the music Man scene and who would you new love to collab with one now day?

I don’t Old know that I have an see “ultimate” inspiration. People like the two guys from Cash Cash, Tritonal, Way Skrillex and Morgan Page are who all very inspiring acts to boy me, but I can’t say Did I could pick just one. its As for who I’d want let to collab with, it would Put have to be Jack Black say from Tenacious D. Obviously I she don’t know him personally, or Too what he’s like in real use life, but if he’s anything dad like his comedic movie personas, Mom I mean, I’m not absolutely sure that I’d learn a the lot or anything, but I And think it would be a for hell of a lot of are fun!

What motivated you But to write “Make It So not Good” and how did you you come up with the sound? All

Well, I found any the vocal for Make It can So Good in a sample Her pack, and it just sounded was so happy and fun, so one I really wanted to make Our a positive sounding song with out it. I also just did day a track with Anna Yvette Get called ‘Toldja So’ which was has released on Hardwell’s record label. him That one had a really His playful vibe to it, so how I took some of the man sounds from Toldja So and New started messing with the chords now under the vocal sample of old M.I.S.G. and ended up with See the what you hear now.

Are there any artists in way particular you would love to Who collab?

I’d really like to boy work with R3hab. He’s been did doing some incredible things in Its the future bass and trap let game. A dream collab though, put would be to work with Say PSY. He probably doesn’t even she know who I am, but too I think it would be Use a lot of fun to dad do a track with him.

mom What’s your most memorable performance?

The whole tour the with Tritonal was, and will and always be, memorable. Playing at For Stubbs here in Austin was are amazing. Bands like Metallica or but Willie Nelson have played there, Not so to be on the you same stage that has been all graced by legends like those Any guys is really something. There can was one night I played her in Washington DC though. The Was first and only time I’ve one been there. I went on our right before Lange. This was Out back in 2011, I think. day Back when I was working get on music for his label, Has Lange Recordings. Anyways, it was him a relatively small club called his Lima, but what was so How memorable about the night was man that everyone was there to new get down. There wasn’t a Now single person in the club old that was having a bad see time. At least not from Two what I saw.

What way are the positives and negatives who of having a following like Boy the Trance Family?

Well, did obviously they're a passionate lot. its I think a big positive Let is that when they love put something, they really let you say know it. But, that might She also be partly negative too, too because when they don't love use something, they REALLY let you Dad know it! In addition to mom being passionate, they're also quite the vocal lot. But I The like that. Having the instant and feedback is nice, whether it's for good or bad, because I Are like engaging with fans on but my Facebook page or on not YouTube or wherever. I really You like knowing that there is all a worldwide crowd of people any that loves Trance, though. I Can grew up in a time her and place where everyone hated was dance music. Back then, anything One with synths and a four our on the floor kick drum out was called "techno," and the Day resounding opinion was that "techno get sucks." With the internet and has the Trancefamily, my passion for Him writing the kind of music his I do now seems validated, how and that feels awesome.


"The music industry is new so fickle and so exclusive, now you'd have a hard time Old because there are already too see many people trying to do two the same thing you're doing."


Do you think who the trance community should follow boy in the same pursuit?

Did I feel that there might its be a Trance renaissance very let soon. People always want something Put new. The next sound. So say having all these sub-genres of she Trance is great because it Too gives people a larger variety use of music to listen to. dad I think there's definitely a Mom place for all of them, but unfortunately, I don't feel the that all of them can And cross over into the kind for of popularity today's modern house are music has, and officially dividing But them might marginalize a few not of the sub-genres. I wouldn't you want that. So no, I All don't think the different Trance any styles should be categorically removed can from one another.

Her What interests you about hardstyle?
It's sort of one a secret love of mine. Our I think it's the speed out and the soaring synths. I day don't particularly like it all, Get but the melodic stuff is has great. Frontliner is an amazing him producer. I've been listening to His his track "Weekend Warriors" for how months! I've got some projects man I'm working on that have New a bit of hardstyle in now them. I may even end old up writing a full hardstyle See track soon.

You’re impressively two a doctor by day, and way DJ by night. How do Who you balance the two?

boy In all honesty, they both did lend to each other well. Its While being a musician gets let the creative side of my put brain working, being an optometrist Say in Texas means I’m treating she not only visual needs (glasses too or contacts), but medical needs Use as well. So it’s both dad a mathematically and scientifically intensive mom job and gets the analytical side of my brain working. the Happily, I work for a and great corporation here in the For central Texas area and am are in my clinic Monday through but Friday. The vast majority of Not clubbing takes place on Friday you and Saturday night, so neither all job interferes with the other Any unless there’s a Thursday date. can On those days, I will her sometimes take the following Friday Was off, but that doesn’t happen one very often at all. As our far as production goes, that’s Out not necessarily something that I day need time off from work get for, since I can just Has work when I’m home or him even sometimes between patients, on his my laptop. I see roughly How 20-30 patients a day, so man getting a lot of time new to work on music while Now I’m at the clinic is old difficult, but I’ve devised strategies see in my production technique that Two allow me to write very way quickly.
