Ortofon: What is your best memory as a DJ?
- There are so many! I’ve done tours, festivals, I’ve opened for Kanye… all types of crazy events. But as a DJ, that was winning the DMC last year. Because I had been doing the DMC since 1998 and had a couple of regional wins, done a couple of U.S finals, never placed, and it was just that one night when everything came together. I remember that Lord Finesse was hosting and he’s trying to bring controversy saying: “Yo this DJ said this and that about you!” And I am on stage, so charged, so excited, ready to beat every DJ on that stage that went against me! And with every round, I just got more confident.
After the first round I thought I lost and when they announced me winning, I almost threw up because I was just overwhelmed. Once I was over that moment, I just thought: “Let’s go!” and I was ready to beat anybody. So just going through that day was already amazing, but knowing that I would represent the U.S at the World Championships, nothing could beat that!
