Describe your sound in your own words.
Loud, aggressive, fun.
How did you become a DJ?
I was never really into DJ culture when I was young. I was a punk/hardcore kid starting a label called Dim Mak and, after we started signing artists, we threw Dim Mak parties in LA around 2003 and that's where I started DJing. About 2006 I started producing remixes and four years later I'm about to put out my first studio album though my label and Island/Def Jam.
What's your biggest vice?
Poker. I play cash games wherever I go. When I was touring Australia I played in every casino I could find. Plus there's tons of house games going around in LA.
Who was your first celeb crush?
That's a tough one, I guess I'd say Lindsay Lohan.
Have you ever met her?
Yeah, she's actually good friend of mine. That's partially why I said her name, to give her the plug.
What's your musical guilty pleasure?
Some old classic joints that people don't expect from me. There's a song I open my set with that's by the Carpenters called 'Close to You.' That's a f---ing jaaaam.
Beatles or Stones?
Beatles.100%. No doubt. Stones don't even come close to the Beatles.
