19 year old producer and DJ from Chicago
How would you describe your music style, in non-technical terms?
It's very loud, very energetic, and very melodic!
How and why did you decide to become a DJ?
I went to Lollapalooza in 2014 and instantly got hooked! I was inspired and started producing my own stuff and learned how to DJ from a friend.
Tell us a bit about your fans.
Crazy! Very energetic group of people. I have a great local fan base in Chicago
What are your top 3 influences? Doesn't have to musical.
Lana Del Rey
Any guilty pleasure(s)?
Lana Del Rey's entire Ultraviolence album
All-time favorite track(s)?
West Coast - Lana Del Rey
What is your favorite festival, why?
Lollapalooza! I'm from Chicago so it's a huge part of the culture. I grew up on it!
Funniest/weirdest thing that ever happened during a gig?
Our speakers caught on fire! The wiring got all messed up and the speakers legit started smoking.
What advice do you have for someone looking to book a DJ? Other than "book me!" ;)
Look for somebody you know is gonna fit your event. A lot of people will throw themselves at any event and I think thats really noble, but if they aren't gonna play wedding music at a wedding, it's probably not a good fit.
