If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be: 
The ability to go without sleep. Sleep has always slowed me down.
Should you play to the crowd or for yourself: 
I think a great DJ figures out the balance, and it's somewhere in-between.
What does EDM mean to you: 
A blanket term which covers all things electronic. When someone talks about EDM, you know you're talking to someone new to it. It's a good term for them.
Should celebrities be DJs: 
Not professionally. But if they want to get up and play records, I've no problem with it.
Have you ever been thrown off the decks: 
Oh yeah. Many times. Last time was like three years ago at the Winter Music Conference. In front of 7000 people, I got two records in and they kicked me off. For me, it's no thing.
Are you a DJ if you don't beat match: 
Sure. Why not? What we do now is different, so we need a different word other than 'DJ'.
Where's the next dance music capital: 
Los Angeles
