How many years ago did you started playing techno?

I started DJing in 2015, but I attended my first ‘techno’ event around 2007 when I was a teenager, and I was fascinated. Before that, I had already been consuming a lot of electronic music at home, such as trance, progressive, or what we in the north knew as Bumping.

What musical lines do you prefer to play?

In general, I’ve never liked pigeonholing myself into one style since I’ve been a lover of many genres since childhood, and it’s challenging for me to settle on just one. Literally, we listened to almost everything at home, and that reflects in my sets. However, if I had to choose one, I feel very comfortable playing harder, faster, and more impactful styles like HardTechno, Hardbass, Psy, or Hardcore, always selecting tracks that have something that hooks the dance floor, whether it’s a melody or a vocal.

Why did you choose to be a Techno DJ?

When I started in 2015, I was playing Drum & Bass at home and a few public events I had that year for Techno audience. At that time, I was completely in love with D&B, although a part of me leaned more towards Techno. It took me a long time to focus and decide what I wanted to do, something very typical of me… hahaha. For several months, I attended events and festivals as a spectator, with a lot of Techno programming, and gradually I figured out what I had to do. The energy created with the audience is unique, and for me, it’s very liberating. I feel very alive, it’s the best therapy in the world.

What do you hope for the future of the music scene?

I hope the scene continues on its current path or even better. I think we are experiencing a beautiful moment, and that has a lot to do with the pandemic and almost two years without events. The new generation is wonderful and very open to listening and dancing to many styles that three years ago were practically unthinkable. Personally, I’m very happy about it because I’ve always liked to play harder than usual.

Who is your favorite DJ or reference inspiration?

Without a doubt, I couldn’t name just one, as many have inspired and admired me over the years. But if I had to choose some from all the styles I love and that have contributed something to my life, they would be The Prodigy, Oscar Mulero, Ben Sims, Noisia, Angerfist…

Do you have a favorite track?

One of my all-time favorite tracks is “Smack my Bitch Up” by The Prodigy. I don’t know how many times I’ve listened to and danced to it; it always brings back great memories and sensations.

If you want to add something else, what would it be?

I would like to thank the audience for supporting me and always giving me all their love, whether in person at one of the events they attend to see me or through social media, messages, podcasts, etc. I am very happy and grateful to be able to dedicate myself to something I love with all my being, and that wouldn’t be possible without the audience. Thank you so much for making it possible; I love you all! Also, to all the people who are starting to DJ or produce, I would say keep fighting for your dreams with love, dedication, and humility. Don’t give up because the beginnings and the journey can be tough, but with effort and love, things can be achieved. And finally, many thanks to the Fusion team for featuring me in this interview; it has been a tremendous pleasure!
