Tell us a little bit about how you got started as a DJ / Producer? Who was your biggest inspiration?

I got started as a DJ in 1992 after watching a few of my older friends do it. My biggest inspirations back in those days were people like Ellis Dee, Carl Cox, Rhythm Masters and Murk. I was big into jungle, hardcore and house so I had a varied taste in music which has helped my later career.


Will this be your first show in Hong Kong?   Is there anything that you are looking forward to doing or seeing in particular?

Khalil: Yes - this is the first time for all of us.
Rags: Im coming a week early to check out Hong Kong before the gig. I want to eat lots of noodles, check out the record stores, see some of the islands and run around the city with Harbour Runners.
Snips: I'm really looking forward to seeing the architecture of the city and checking out the local streetwear/sneaker scene.

Will this be your first show in Hong Kong?   Is there anything that you are looking forward to doing or seeing in particular?
Yes - my first show in Hong Kong. I've been wanting to come here for years. I hear the food and sightseeing is amazing. it's sounds like a really interesting mix of cultures.

How do you feel that DJing and producing has changed over the last few years?
The technology and music have changed a lot. DJ'ing to me has become more musical, more fun, and much more about the fans than ever. It's more of a proper "show" now where the DJ is the main focus, not the background. It's crazy that now you can make amazing pro-quality music with just a laptop.

Tell us a little bit about how you got started as a DJ / Producer? Who was your biggest inspiration?

I remember like it was yesterday, I was about 16, as every summer I would go back to home town in Corsica (where my family comes from),  and a friend of mine who was a local DJ there, told me that I might get a chance to play for a big outside party there. I was so excited about it, I remember my mother’s face when she saw my suit case with one or 2 swimming suits and the rest full of CDs...I played 2 hours, shaking with all my body, my technic was quite awful, but the energy was amazing, and the people liked it!


Tell us a little bit about how you got started as a DJ? Who was your biggest inspiration?

I started DJing when I was about 12 years old. I was always interested in music from a very young age so DJing seemed like the perfect hobby for me.  My older brother bought turntables because he wanted to learn to DJ but he never really got the hang of it and then went off to university and left his decks at home.  I would sneak into his room after school every day to practice and eventually realised that I was picking it up quite quickly. I started watching scratch videos of the Technics DMC World Championships and slowly learnt how to scratch just by watching DJ battles. I would say my biggest inspiration is DJ Jazzy Jeff. I used to listen to his early albums with the Fresh Prince and try to emulate his routines.


Will this be your first show in Hong Kong?   Is there anything that you are looking forward to doing or seeing in particular?
It's our first time here!! we wanna catch as much of the vibe of the city as we can!! Phillip from M.A.N.D.Y. just gave us some must-see destinations to go for last week in Stockholm....

How do you feel that DJing and producing has changed over the last few years?
Without a doubt DJing and producing have been influenced by technological progress quite a bit, but in the end it's still the musical quality that counts. A good song is still a good song.


Tell us a little bit about how you got started as a DJ / Producer? Who was your biggest inspiration?
-Carlo: I started as a DJ a few years ago, I felt in love with it when I was at my first party in a club, that was what I wanted to do! And so after some years I wanted to learn how to produce music to play my own beats, it was really inspiring to see all the US DJ’s playing their own sound rocking the clubs and that was my target as well! I really love to produce my own stuff!


Tell us a little bit about how you got started as an artist? Who was your biggest inspiration?
- I almost cried in my high school cafeteria. That’s how I got started. I have been writing lyrics ever since I can remember, but I didn’t start taking music seriously until someone got a hold of my notebook in high school, read my lyrics aloud and made fun of them in front of my peers. I was determined to prove him and everyone else wrong. So, I entered the school talent show and I murdered that show! I received a standing ovation and respect from the nay-sayers. To a 15/16 year old kid, that meant the world to me and that’s when I decided to seriously pursue music.


Will this be your first show in Hong Kong?   Is there anything that you are looking forward to doing or seeing in particular?

Will be my second time in Hong Kong, I played here a couple of years ago in a rooftop club. It was an amazing experience for me. I didnt' had much time to visit the city properly, so this time I took some extra days to explore those amazing and endless streets. Hong Kong is definitely one of my favourite cities around the world.
