Tell us about your start as an artist/band...

I started out as a bedroom DJ and played afterparties for fun. I was in university and working at a club as a bartender when I realised, I want to be in charge of the music. That's how it started. I rented some decks and bought myself a XONE:92 and just got to work. I also dabbled in Ableton and had some friends teach me the basics but it wasn't until I moved to Berlin in 2008 that I produced my first tracks and started touring professionally. That feels like a lifetime ago.
