Full Interview for the website
Born and raised?
Zagreb, Croatia. Raised in mid class suburbia.
When did you start djing?
late 1993. first mix tapes were out in 1994, and 2 years later I got my first chance to do a warm up set before DJ Frajman at legendary club Aquarius.
What Artists is an inspiration to you?
It is extremely difficult to answer that question. After 20 years of DJing and searching for my own sound I had at least 20 artists that had strong impact to my musical and technical evolution. In general I always had special place for non predictable artists with "balls" to experiment and attitude. My roll models were few local talents, but probably Derrick May was a DJ who's set in 1996 made me re think about what I am doing, and open few extra channels in my head. After hearing Derrick, I never played same way.
As a DJ, I probably learned how to think about music from underground icons such as laurent garnier, Dj Bone
