There is no one moment that I can look back on and say this is when I knew I wanted to be a DJ. Looking back however I can honestly say it was a cumulation of many different experiences, both good and not so good that have brought me to this very point. One thing I know to be true is I’ve always had music in my blood and I believe it to be an extension of who I am. Although I had always had an interest in progressive music and had even dabbled in it for a while, it wasn’t until 2011 when I saw Hernan Cattaneo perform at Black & Blue that I knew it was my true calling. And so my incredible journey had begun, transitioning from a successful commercial DJ to a more underground sound. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to play alongside many talented DJ’s at various venues such as the renown Circus Afterhours. This is in fact only the beginning of what’s to come as I keep building my unique sound and style of music. However, one thing I can promise you… “It’s gonna get Messi!”
