Are you from NY?
Originally from New Jersey, but I’ve been in NY for like 15 years.

My entire careers kind of been like that. I never thought I’d be here. The whole ride has been awesome.
So in terms of the other people DJing, have you worked with Vashtie, Electric Punanny before? The party has a very family appeal.
Everyone that’s here has worked with each other run some capacity. It’s all fam.
