- When it comes to electronic music, I started listening to a lot of Daft Punk, way before I knew what house music was, and then progressed into a lot of Steve Angello, Eric Prydz, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Laidback Luke.
- My dad has always been a big Ray Charles fan, and I've grown up listening to all kinds of music.
- There's always haters, no matter what you're doing - whether they're complaining that everything you do sounds the same, or it's too different.
- I think I am a pretty good judge of character in general and try to surround myself with the best people I can.
- I love finding out-of-the-box inspirations and blending them with what I've done in the past. And when I started to experiment with genres, it didn't sound forced. Maybe that's because it's all music that I listened to growing up, and it's all music that I love.
- A lot of work and thinking goes into my DJing. I want the entire night to progress seamlessly and when I have to adapt the energy on the fly for the crowd on any given night, I can do so with harmonic mixes that I've practiced over and over again. I am far from the only DJ that does this and it's something I take pride in being able to do.
- I've always worn a lot of Ralph Lauren, and plaid shirts in general have been a signature piece for me. With plaid, you can look super-relaxed or you can look a bit dressed up.
- I actually only started listening to house music around the time I started making it. I got hooked both to making music and to house music.
