Can you tell us and our followers how you first got into music?
I got into the electronic music scene when I was around 15 in the 90’s, through listening to FM radio stations out of Toronto that would broadcast techno, house d&b etc. Specifically DJ’s Don Burns aka Dr. Trance, Chris Sheppard and Deadly Headly all broadcasted underground music radio shows.
Once I got my drivers license it was off to Toronto and Detroit to check out the raves, and that is where my electronic music journey began.
