- You've had an incredible experience in Vietnam so far, can you name a few highlights from your career?
My biggest accomplishment yet was playing at Ultra Korea on the Mainstage for sure. I was one of those guys that would watch these big festivals and dream of one day being able to perform in one of them, it was a dream coming to reality. The moment I saw my name in the lineup was an unforgettable memory, and certainly one that I will cherish forever.
My second biggest achievement was to sign a song on Hardwell's imprint, Revealed Records. This was one of my goals since the beginning, and to be honest I still have only have positive things to say about Revealed.
The third biggest achievement for me is to be able to perform. I just feel very grateful every time I step on the stage. Especially when I play with incredibly talented artists, it is very inspiring!
- What is your biggest goal?
Well, you would probably guess as this is the thing that most artists dream of doing. My goal is to play at Tomorrowland Belgium, Mainstage!
- What are your main influences on music?
I'm all about festival music. I love everything about it, the way it sounds, the way it makes people go crazy and enjoy themselves... I just can't get enough of the atmosphere and I want to share it with as many people as possible.
