What style of mix have you gone for?
Ive gone with a minimal / deep tech mix. This genre of music is really where it all started for me and is what I enjoy listening to and playing the most!
What inspired you to do music
I remember my first ever rave back when I was 18, standing in the middle of the box room at Ministry of Sound watching the DJ take control of the entire crowd thinking....WOW, imagine if that was me. I was in awe with the whole thing and just knew from then onwards that I wanted to give it a go. Ever since that moment I just kept my goals in sight and worked as hard as I could to make sure I get to where I want to be.
What's your favourite part of the mix?
I love the whole mix but if I had to pick a best bit it would have to be the part where I drop 'Patience - Elliot Chapman, Hart & Neenan'. This is an incredible beat, one of those ones you can't help but move to!
What's your top tip for isolation?
My top tip for isolation is to not let it get you down. This amount of free time we've currently got will probably never happen again in our lifetime so use the time to either learn new skills, lose weight, gain muscle, learn a new language etc. Whatever it may be, make sure you come out the other side of lockdown a better version of yourself!
What's the first thing you'll do when we are no longer GROUNDED?
This ones easy... straight down the boozer onto someone's kitchen for the afters haha!
