“So, I started DJing around eight years ago, then five years doing it with gigs. My first gig was Nico’s in Glasgow and then Sanctuary and then from there I just started getting noticed and started playing in SWG3 and then I got a residency in the Raddison RED Sky Bar. 

“I still have to pinch myself sometimes that I’m getting asked to play with these big artists like Patrick Topping, he’s been one of my inspirations for so long and that’s three times I’ve played with him now. And I obviously get a lot of inspiration from all these different acts and they are different sounds as well, so there might be a bit of techno or a bit of disco or a bit of house, so it’s good that I get a variety. But yeah, I love it. 

“I’ll be playing in the Galvanizers with Dan Shake and Eliza Rose. It’s amazing because I seen Dan Shake play at Sub Club before Covid and he was unreal, I got a lot of inspiration from him because he does it perfectly - disco and house. When I seen his set at Sub Club it was just unreal so now getting to play with him on the same stage is amazing so I’m super excited.
