Interview

Hi Jose! Where are your roots?
Born In LA with Hispanic blood.

How did you end up on Mad Decent / Party Like US?
I started sending my demo’s over to Diplo & AC Slater, like remixes etc. They were the only first contacts I had really. And fortunately they dig my stuff, so I stayed with my main labels for projects I did.

Moombahton or Trap?
Moombahtrap.

If you could remix one song of John Lennon, what would it be?
Whatever gets you through the night.

What’s your favorite Jazz tune?
Tenacious D – JAZZ.

What would you do if you have to produce music without having energy drinks next to you?
Nothing would get accomplished. I think energy drinks help my A.D.D stay in focus.

Describe the feeling you had when you heard Kissy Sell Out playing your tracks on BBC Radio One.
It was surreal. He first played my collab w/ Mr.Vega.. I remember someone calling me telling me he played it.
I called vega.. It was like 3AM his time.. Lol, I talked about it for weeks.

What would you do to Valentino Khan if you were a girl?
Pet his mustache.

What’s your favorite soccer team?
Manchester United.

Where do you usually get your vocal samples from?
Anywhere. Whatever I hear I like I’ll rip it. Youtube or other songs.
I’m a network thief.

What can we expect from your set during Dim Mak Sundays on February 17th?
Great vibes, great tunes and lots of sweat. And if no one is dancing I’ll get buck naked to get the crowd wild… Wait, maybe thats a bad idea.
