If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be: 
My wife says my brain because I was good at school. I was a clever guy!
Should you play to the crowd or for yourself: 
I will never play a track that I don't like, but the key is a mix of both.
What does EDM mean to you: 
EDM means culture to me now. EDM was just a name, but if you look at what's going on in Russia, America and Asia, it's become a huge culture.
Should celebrities be DJs: 
Some of them are really talented and some just hyped. So it's hard to say yes or no to all celebrities.
Have you ever been thrown off the decks: 
No.
Are you a DJ if you don't beat match: 
I don't pre-synch tracks beforehand because I still play CDs. It's fun to keep it a little bit old school, as in Russia not all the clubs have CDJ-2000s.
Where's the next dance music capital: 
I really hope it's going to be Moscow.
