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

The easiest thing is to say I play according to the moment but my main style is house whether it be deep, funky or tech to me it all falls under the umbrella of house. I also love to play funk, soul and disco but I don't really get to play that style out much due to time restraints.

How and why did you decide to become a DJ?

When I started to go to Club Vinyl and I would witness the enchanting spells Danny Tenaglia would have over his crowd. His passion and energy for the music was so intoxicating and life changing that it made me decide I wanted to do the same thing. Music can be so healing when done right it literally changed my life.

Danny Tenaglia- He's the reason I do what I do

Danny Krivit his knowledge of music is just insane, a true collector and lover of music and not to mention a purveyor of the past but still has his foot in the future.
