“The reason I DJ is because I love to entertain and play the best and newest electronic music for the people! When I’m on deck, I have the craziest time at the party! When people are bouncing off the walls and sweat is dripping from the roof, I’m happy and know I’ve done my job. I feed off the energy from the crowd! The harder they dance, the faster they pump their fists and the louder they shout just feeds me inside and in-turn I feed the crowd, together we keep the party PuMpIn!”
