Q:First of all, You just get back from Australia. How was it?

Q:When did you decide it’s time to make a new record, is that more exciting or stressful?

Ans: Music writing is always exciting. It is my passion, so not stressful at all. I have a lot of ideas, but sometimes simply I do not know where to start with them..

Usually, at the end, the final track is totally different from the one I’ve started with.. it makes me more excited, since I never know how will the final track sounds.

Q: What’s your motto or the advice you live by?

Ans: My motto is TeamNoSleep. I believe in hard work, love and passion. If you love what you do, there is no “work” for you, only your passion. Sometimes I am up till the morning, I just cannot sleep, I have too many new ideas, new projects to think about.


Q: For our readers who have never heard your music, explain your sound in 2 words?

Ans: Energy and Bounce

Q: Do you write all of your music on your own, is there anyone who you work with?

ANS: I work with my long term producer and friend, Bálint who you can see as co-artist in my tracks.

Q: At what age did you start ?

ANS: I started this whole thing when I was 16 or 17. It’s been a long journey since the beginning, but I am ready for new challenges !

Q:What are your inspirations?

Ans: Everything. Not only other artists, but places, people.. My latest motivations come from Melbourne. As I said, it was my dream to get to Australia. Melbourne is a very special city for me. It has it’s own vibe, I have never seen or felt before.

Q:Do you have any events coming up or recording going on right now?

Ans: Yes, currently I am working on 5 new projects, and another European tour during the summer. Also, I am pleased to announce that I am working with many international artists from all around the world ! So this year will be full of new music ! Cannot wait to share them with you !

Q:Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to Dj as a career or just advice about careers in general?

Ans : Follow your dreams. If you just want the fame and money, It won’t work. But If you love what you do, work hard and keep yourself motivated, you will be the best. Just do what you love, the rest will come after.


Q:  Do you get nervous before a performance or a competition?

Ans: Of course, I am always nervous befe I go to the stage. I believe it is a good sign, since it means it’s not a routine for me, it is always challenging to be better and better day-by-day.

Thanks for taking time out of your day:)
