𝟭. Where are you from and what is your hobby?
I am originally from Toronto, Canada, but I moved to Cluj-Napoca, Romania a couple years ago. My main hobby is music, listening to it and producing it, but I also spend time playing basketball and riding bikes.
𝟮. How did your get into music?
I first got into music at 3 years old, when I played a toy xylophone. After that I started discovering different genres. When I first discovered "Queen", they immediately became my favorite band, until I heard about "Red Hot Chilli Peppers". These 2 bands are still my favorite bands and I don't think that will ever change. At 10 years old, I started playing the drums but after about 2 years I quit it to produce electronic music.
𝟯. Who are your biggest influences?
Right now my biggest influences are Martin Garrix, The Weekend and DaBaby. I really like their style and I look up to them.
4. What are your goals in the music industry?
My main goal is to get my music heard by a lot of people. I don't really care about money and fame, I just want my music to get heard.
5. If you could choose a location to perform at, what would it be?
I would be fine to perform anywhere around the globe, but I'd probably perform in a place where my music isn't that known. I would also like to perform in my home-town and donate all the money I get from tickets and merch to a foundation that prevents global warming or a foundation that tries to stop starvation.
6. What is your all-time favorite song?
This is a hard question... I don't know if I could choose one song, but if I'd had to choose on I would choose "Symphony No. 9" by Ludwig van Beethoven. I really like the whole structure of the songs and I'm really impressed by how many instruments there are. In my opinion, you can not recreate such a masterpiece even with all the software in the world.
7. Most embarrassing moment?
I've had some really embarrassing moments in the past couple of years but it's hard to choose one, mostly because there aren't that many and most of them include only a few close friends which ere completely fine with what happened.
8. Proudest accomplishment?
I think my proudest accomplishment is either hitting 1000 streams on Spotify and Apple Music or learning how to wheelie on a bike. I think these are my 2 biggest accomplishments, because they both took months to complete and a whole lot of patience.
9. What is something about you that might surprise someone who knows you the best?
I think that something that might surprise my best friends is that I enjoy doing stunts with my bike, because most of them know me as a basketball player and musician, and also this sport(mountain biking) isn't too popular in my country.
𝟭𝟬. What is your dream collaboration?
I think that my dream collab is with DaBaby because even though we don't make the same music genre, we could make a sick track. He is also my biggest inspiration, and I really like his style. I save all of his songs because compared to other rappers he is unique.
