“For me, DJing is the least egotistical thing. It's just like: 'What do you want to listen to?' It's not something you can capture on the Grammys."”
“I listen to all types of music, and I have a lot of music that's moodier than anything you've heard me do. If you see different sets, it's always different songs.”
“My performances are different because you're captivated more by everything around you rather than just staring at something. And I try to cater to the venue. If I'm on a rooftop where girls are on the tables dancing, I'm gonna play something to fit that. It's always a different experience.”
