Can you tell us about the ideas and inspirations behind this mix?

Yes! First of all, I think it’s important to say that 100% of the music I recorded in this mix are tracks released in the 90s. Its old-school acid trance underground techno sound. So my idea behind this mix and mainly behind the music I produce and play, is to escape from commercial and from the music you hear every time you go clubbing. Actually, I was trying to share my picture of a perfect party. Hope you enjoy it!

As far as you remember, what was your first song or band that you fell in love with when you were a kid or a teenager?

Definitely Black Eyed Peas!

Do you remember your first encounter with electronic music and can you elaborate on that?

It was in October 2014 when I was 14 years old. My brother took me to a party called Cxema (Kyiv, Ukraine). They are huge and global now but back in the days it was a real underground rave for 200 people. This experience was very new for me and I couldn’t understand how should I dance and so on. But then I went to their next party and that’s how the story begins…

Tell us about one of your best, worst, funniest or strangest DJ experiences.

I will tell you about my first one! Don’t know if I can categorize it somehow… It’s not the worst one and also not the strangest one, maybe the funniest. It’s because I played old-school hip-hop at a really weird party. I had fun! But it was the first and the last time I played that kind of music.

Our last featured artist Lulu would like to know, what is your favourite animal and why?

It’s a tiger, I am convinced that it’s my spirit and totem animal and in general I share their vibe.

Get in touch with our next artist Mala Herba. What would you like to know?

If there would be a possibility to unite all countries on our planet in one peaceful country, which name would you give to this country?
