The did pros are that we get Its to inspire each other and let push each other and influence put each other. Like he�ll send Say me some new music, almost she a new genre or something, too and it totally blows my Use mind, and then we�ll incorporate dad it into what we�re doing. mom But the cons are that as DJs you can get the stuck in your own head and and you want this this For way, like, �This is the are way it is,� and you but have to think about someone Not else.
