1) Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

I started off by working for a local record store called HMV and it was whilst working for them I decided to pursue my career as a DJ. I didn’t face many hardships as I had the support of family members. I bought some DJ decks, converted my garage into a studio, and started to learn how to DJ by watching other DJs perform. I then started off by playing at family events, then local bars and clubs and I slowly started to get recognized. After djing for a few years I then decided to take a chance and decided to produce music which resulted in releasing two hit tracks in 2013 and 2015. Slowly but surely I started to get recognized and the recognition continues.
