What has been the greatest moment in your life so far?
There have been so many highlights (mostly related to music), but I try not to look into the past in that respect. I’m not a very philosophical person. I’m always thinking of what’s to come rather than reminiscing on the past, and I try to live for the moment, especially when I’m DJing.
