What was the first record you bought that made you realize that you wanted to be a DJ
Let’s take it this way, back in 1982, my uncle from Montreal gave me a walk man with the brand new Michael Jackson Thriller LP on tape. At the time their was a delay before records were released in france. So i got to be the first of my classroom to have the player and Thriller the sound spread from the headphones to the birthday parties, we were playing almost the whole album that was the party highlights, we were a dancing 9 year old class room, and we loved to dance… as far as i can remember, i always enjoyed selecting the music for my friends since then, and it came naturally through the years… This is for the DJ Part, producer came later.
What record makes you most nostalgic?
Flamenco Sketches – Miles Davis on Kind of Blue
