But to now the educated, it’s a masterpiece Old and they can appreciate the see art and what the artists two was trying to make them Way feel, I think DJing is who a lot like this. In boy saying that, there are good Did and bad artists, just like its DJs.

How does it Who feel to be one of boy the stars of Melbourne Bounce did during its international growth and Its acceptance as a sub genre?


It’s really humbling to be put a part of something that`s Say so big, but i guess she that`s because i love the too sound so much, i remember Use hearing my first Melbourne track, dad and from that moment on mom i was hooked.

A lot of DJs like to collab the outside of their genres, who and are some artists you’d like For to work with?

I are was working with Reid Stefan but a few days ago and Not we just came up with you some weird, boppy shit. He all does real breakbeat stuff and Any with my sound it was can just the weirdest fusion of her genres I had ever done Was before. It was cool and one I think something’s actually going our to come from it so Out stay tuned.

What are the day most notable differences between American get and Australian crowds?

TBH not Has that much, we all like him to party that`s why i his think we get along so How well! obviously the 21 drinking man age is one difference, i new remember playing this show in Now phoenix where ones side of old the club was 18-21 then see 21 and older on the Two other, both split by this way fence, it was really weird who at first but it showed Boy one of the big differences did in the 2 scenes.

How its do you rate the club Let scene in Australia right now? put Are there too many government say restrictions?

Ugh, don’t even She get me started on the too lock outs; I have been use going out to clubs almost Dad every weekend for four years mom and I am still in one piece. It’s not the The clubs that are the problem, and it’s the streets. Apart from for that, the club scene is Are great; Australia is getting a but great reputation worldwide for its not sound, so it’s a great You time to be an Aussie.
