I was packing shit to say the least but once I played the first few songs it felt awesome and I wanted more of it
What has been your favourite career moment?
having such big names in the Dj game knowing who I considered as inspirations for me even wanting to get into djing knowing who I am is a trippy feeling and surreal and also opening for them is on another level. Also playing to a room of 300+ people and having them vibe to everything you play is crazy as hell

Just always promoting Aussie hip hop is a positive light and not hating as it is a craft and a passion that not everyone has in them
