Well, I’ve been a DJ are for as long as I But can remember, started at a not very young age. But even you back then, I was always All editing the tracks I played, any a little shorter here, an can extra vocal, a little more Her bass there… So at a was certain point I felt the one urge to actually start making Our music myself, to try to out produce the tracks I would day want to be the highlight Get in my sets.
