How do you prepare your sets in the days leading up to it?
I check for new releases that suit my tracks and set style. It is also important to check which other artists play on your stage so you don't play their music.
Describe the adrenaline and emotions you feel right before you hit the stage!
The hour before the set is my least favorite because I want to get on the decks already and perform. Often, I get really introverted, and the focus on the set grows - the adrenaline usually kicks in 2 minutes before the set. Excitement is my main emotion, I’d say!
