How did you get into DJing?
I started listening to Ibiza voice when I was 16 (now 28) it was a Lee Foss podcast and I was hooked. Then started going to events and raves in London from 17.When I was 20 I was working in Zante and using virtual DJ at the time. I did a lock in party that went pretty well so decided to come back and practice and here I am 8 years later.

Why should listeners vote for you?
They should vote for me because I know how to warm up and my music collection is varied. I have done the warm up set many times but I have also done all the other slots. I am not afraid to play to big crowds in huge clubs or huge events as I have done that before. However I have never played in Ibiza and a help of your vote would help me get there which would mean the world to me. If the mix bonds with you and you can relate to it then please hit vote.
