What inspires you to make music?

Life, everything in life inspires me, I see rhythm everywhere.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Always a bit of a tingle in my chest, I get nervous.

I enjoy Drooble, I'm hoping to make friends here.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Having to buy stuff is the worst, because no one knows my amazing music yet, it's on Spotify now so it's a good start. I need lots of stuff for my gigs... Laptop (3000 dollars) so I can use my APC 40 on Ableton Live to do live performances.... I know exactly what I need...

I tend to check out other artists in the local facebook groups, and I encourage them if I enjoy their work. I also provide feedback, usually constructive criticism.

A good sense of balance, make people dance a bit, while making the music suitable for other activities like house-work, or just shopping, while it plays on the radio...

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

I really enjoy listening to olschool dubstep, but I also enjoy good old Hip-Hop beats, or psy-trance, and the old dub, you know, the rub-a-dub-dub.... I guess I could mention VibeSquad. I like the beats a lot.
