What is your favourite club?

“Space Ibiza”

What is your favourite club memory?

“When I was 17 and went to Ibiza for the first time. The first night of the holiday we went to Space and as I got into the main room “2 Many DJs” where playing and it was unbelievable. It was an experience that I still think about to this day 15 year later.”

Space Ibiza

What was the first club you attended?

“It was a club night in Belfast called “Twitch” I ended up at it purely be accident. I was only 15 or 16 walking about Belfast City Center on a Saturday night trying to find a bar or club that would let us into with our asking us for ID. We end up in Laverys Bar and upstairs there was a rave on. That was my first proper clubbing experience.”

What was your first DJ set in a club?

“It was in a club in Belfast called Yello. I played a warm up set on a Sunday night.”

What’s on your rider?

“Dragon Claw Whiskey, Beer, Gin and Champagne.”


What’s your favourite track to save a dance floor?

“All depends on the night you are playing and there are so many to pick from. But two that pop into my head and they haven’t let me down yet is ‘Sister Sledge – Lost in Music (Dimitri from Paris remix)’ and ‘Dominica – Gotta Let You Go (Bicep edit)'”


What’s the best sound system you’ve ever heard?

“Daft Punk playing live at Oxygen Festival in Ireland 2008. They played on a funktion one.”
