Thank you. It feels awesome, it’s been quite a long time coming for new music. I’m grateful for the response to “Worldwide” and excited for the whole record to be out.
I found Hip Hop and it really resonated with me. I was an artist beforehand so I already was dialed in on expressing myself creatively, I explored break dancing and rapping as well but I had the most fun djing, so I decided to focus on that.
What did you listen to growing up?
What made you get into DJing?
I love music and I love the sound of scratching, it’s so abstract and different. It’s an enjoyable use of time, getting to be creative with all of this wonderful art.
Was there a particular track that made you start scratching?
Who were your biggest influences for this?
You have a new album coming out this year, describe it in three words.
What are your three favourite tracks from it?
Honestly every track is my favorite, it’s not a long record but I made sure every one hit me in a way where I felt it was really special and the best I could make it. It’s just one thing “Phonograph Phoenix”.
What was the biggest challenge and triumph you faced recording it?
Having seen videos of you battling, you scratch at breakneck speed and you use records of multi genres, what has been a favourite moment on stage?
Thank you. My favorite moment is when the crowd and I are all dialed in together, the group energy, the fun, the being in the present, it’s a magical place.
Tell us a funny moment that you’ve had on stage.
2020 was a time to reflect, what did you learn about yourself?
Did you pick up any new skills?
What are you listening to at the moment?
My favorite music genre of the past couple years is definitely Tech House.
What are you looking forward to next?
DJ Abilities album “Phoograph Phoenix” will be available on 29th October 2021.
