Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My first release on Paul Oakenfold's Perfecto Black imprint called "Rituals" was the first record I signed to his label. This record was done entirely on a mobile studio setup while I was traveling through Asia. My remix with RIAA Platinum-certified artist VASSY (who worked with Tiesto and KSHMR on their track "Secrets") is an EDM production that received the most amount of success on a big-scale and I'm especially proud of that. My record with Mira J called "Tell Me" was the first original vocal tune to chart incredibly well for months on Beatport, with the timeless remix by Argentina's Ezequiel Arias. We garnered support by progressive house legends such as Way Out West, Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo, Guy J, Guy Mantzur, and many others.
