QRO: Highlight of this year’s Electric Zoo?
SI: From my first day perspective, the venue is beautiful and well run. I am excited to be here and experience it all.
QRO: If you took a road trip and had to choose a few tracks to get you through the journey, what are you are listening to?
SI: Definitely some dark techno – not only does it make the travel go by quickly, but it also keeps me awake.
QRO: Who are your biggest musical influences?

QRO: Any advice for those who are starting out in the DJ scene?

QRO: Overall, do you have a favorite track that you play at festivals/venues?
SI: This DnB track by Quix called “HUHHH (VIP)” gets the crowd going within my recent sets. It has a good flow as well as a good build up.
