How long you been DJing? What influenced you to start DJing?
I have been DJing for 10+ years. I can remember one day I heard a radio show and the songs were in the mix. I was trying to figure out how can the songs change, but the rhythm remains? Then I started to look for answers to questions and DJing fascinated me.
What was your first gig?
The first serious gig was in a big club called “Super FM Club” to take part in a DJ competition. I called all my friends and supporters to come out. Everybody was screaming my name when I was playing!
Have you played much outside of Latvia? Where?
I’ve played in Russia, UK, Thailand, Finland, USA, Estonia. I am planning to do more gigs outside of Latvia.
How did you expand your skills?
I honed my DJ skills on radio shows. I played on radio shows for 8+ years. Mainly with 2 FM radio stations on various shows: “R’n’B Selection”, “R’n’B Fever”, “Slow Jams”, “Saturday Warm Up” and “Music Kitchen”. I have also been playing on “European Urban/Black Top 40” and “Coyote Lifestyle” for a while.
What is your most memorable gig?
Playing gigs at festivals are my favorites. They always bring positive vibes and memories. The festivals attract huge crowds, 10,000 people! Gigs outside of Latvia are always fun also.
5 records you always take to gig?
Wiz Khalifa – Black & Yellow
DMX – Party Up
Eve – Tamborine
Swedish House Mafia – One
Tinie Tempah – Pass Out
What would be your dream gig?
