What’s the most important skill a DJ should have?: 
Heart.
Is the future still bright for EDM?: 
I stay optimistic about this, trends come and go, but to my mind people will always need to dance, whether it's House, Techno, Progressive or EDM!
Does the constant travelling and DJ lifestyle ever take its toll on you mentally?: 
Except the fact that you can't enjoy enough family time, I think I couldn't be happy or actually live without this lifestyle.
What cause is closest to your heart?: 
Mistreatment of dogs (and animals in general). I always had dogs, I have now 2 adorable chihuahuas, and I can't support damn human beings hurting them.
Which club would you like to bring back from the dead?: 
Studio 54 in NYC, disco period. What a story in this place!
Why aren’t there more women in the Top 100 DJs poll?: 
Maybe because women can't handle with the DJ lifestyle we were talking about. I don't know... Some are awesome like Juicy M for example, and I wish there were more!
What do you think of DJs who use ghost producers?: 
It's hard to pass judgement on this. I really support composing collaboration, sharing between artists and musicians, at least for my projects. Regarding a ghost producer, actually it happens I make some tracks for other artists because sometimes they need a different approach than their own, it's easier to write for someone else than yourself I guess.
