Check out the interview + Listen to some of his mixes in his ONE-on-ONE with SDM
How would you describe your style of mixing, what makes it different?
My music style is more progressive, house and tech tribal. I honestly cannot tell what makes it different but I believe in my own productions and live by my own sound. I stick with my own style, I did not really change to the ‘electro’ sound. I think that is what attracts the world’s biggest DJs and music producers, plus it is working really well on the dance floor. My sounds are more like sexy dark beats which make them different from most music these days.
Who are some of the artists/DJs that have influenced your music?
I am most influenced by Tristan Garner as well as Victor Calderone from his days of the Roxy NYC. Other artists or DJs that I draw inspiration from are Etienne Ozbnorne, Chus and Ceballos. I take a little from each artist and make it my own sound.
Where is your favourite place to play?
My favourite places to play are in Israel, Brazil, Spain, Mexico and now Toronto. I loved playing in Toronto for my first time here at Pride. I really enjoyed the crowd; it was great, they are nice people who love to party.
Does being Israeli influence the type of music you produce? how so?
Actually, I really like Israeli producers because they really have the right sounds and beats. Although to be honest, all my influence came from NYC and I am really thankful and owe that to NYC.
How are you received internationally?
Internationally, I am really enjoying the way the crowd and people are accepting of me with lots of respect, good vibes and energy. People abroad provide great support, so I have not experienced any bad energy yet from my traveling and hope I will not in the future.
You were recently in Toronto, how was your experience? Did you get to visit the city?
I am totally in love with Toronto!!! I really love everything about it! Its the people, city, the streets. It is also the way the people here react to my music because they are very supportive and have lots of great energy. I do not get to visit much but next time I hope to stay longer and take in a city tour!
Would you consider Tel Aviv’s nightlife comparable to that of big cities like New York, Barcelona etc… ?
Tel Aviv’s nightlife has really been getting bigger for the last few years. It is not NYC yet but it holds its own in terms of big parties and huge tourism from all over the world. Gay pride this year was one of the biggest ever in Tel Aviv. I am really happy for and proud of my country.
And of course, Does size matter? (…in regards to Israel of course)
Honestly SIZE does matter, bigger is better, but in some rare cases, like Israel, IT DOESN’T MATTER. I actually prefer those rare cases. Israel is amazing!
