Your new single ‘Wutang’ was released last week, congrats! Can you tell us more about how you made it?
Wutang‘ was an exciting project for me. I drew inspiration from various elements, including my experiences in the music scene and the energy of the crowd. The process started with crafting a catchy melody that could resonate with listeners across different settings. I met up with Lil Yachty in New York to brainstorm ideas, and then we went back and forth, bouncing ideas.

How has being from Canada inspired your music and organizing parties across the country?
Being from Canada has been important because I’ve always looked up to artists from there.

I think Canada is one of the most influential countries in the world for music.

What are your musical influences from childhood?
Growing up, I was exposed to a wide range of musical genres, thanks to my diverse cultural background.

Artists like Michael Jackson, 50 Cent, and Cascada were particularly influential during my formative years.

How do you handle music requests?
I normally like to play for the room. For example, you can’t always play the same set.

I tend to still stick to electronic music during my sets with a lot of mashups.

Is it even possible to argue about musical tastes?
Music is incredibly subjective, and everyone has their own unique preferences and tastes. While discussions about music can sometimes lead to debates or disagreements, I believe it’s essential to respect and appreciate the diversity of opinions within the musical community. Ultimately, music is a form of expression that resonates with individuals on a personal level, and there’s beauty in the variety of perspectives it elicits.

Music is a universal language that transcends boundaries and brings people together, regardless of genre or style.

What is the most important musical equipment invention of all time – and why?
I think the most important musical equipment, especially for music, would be the DAW such as Ableton, Cubase, etc. I see this as a musical instrument also because without it, you really can’t create music in this day and age. I also think the piano is one of the most important inventions because most music is created with chords, and most musicians use the piano to do so.
