About Maison
Chicago based | Global prospect | Inspired by progression

How would you describe your music style, in non-technical terms?

Seductive, groovy, and full of thrive

How and why did you decide to become a DJ?

I've always been an enthusiast for dance music especially at an early age, I love grooves that move every part of of the human body. I just want to do to others the same thing my favorite DJs do to me and make them forget about their problems.

Tell us a bit about your fans.

My fans are supportive, genuine, and always down to come watch me perform.

What are your top 3 influences? Doesn't have to musical.

Apollonia
Ricardo Villalobos
Bella Sarris
D'julz
Archie Hamilton
Molly

I don't really have a top three as you can see.

Any guilty pleasure(s)?

Prince, and latin freestyle.

All-time favorite track(s)?

Everything on Apollonia's Tour a Tour album

What is your favorite festival, why?

Time Warp in Brooklyn, perfect mixture of underground house and techno artists and the lineup is a lot less compared to other festivals so DJs are able put together a detailed story through their 3-4 hour sets.

Funniest/weirdest thing that ever happened during a gig?

My friend yelled "Take your shirt off!" while I was performing at Primary, it was funny but kind of embarrassing haha

What advice do you have for someone looking to book a DJ? Other than "book me!" ;)

Book a dj who isn't scared to try something different on the fly, get someone who can read a crowd and will guarantee to make the crowd sweating for more. It's dance music, people want to dance.

Anything else you'd like to share (optional)?

I opened up for Bella Sarris at Spybar, and closed SmartBar in support of Mathias Kaden!
