Tell us about your inspirations and beginnings.

"The biggest record for me until this day is Depeche Mode's Violator, I discovered it when I was 9 after seeing the band on TV. I didn't understand it then, obviously, but I enjoyed listening to the compositions. As I got older and continued listening, the record would speak more to me every time. After that came a lot of hip hop, some Miami Bass and Talking Heads. When I was 17 I went Groove Jet for the first time, which was huge for me. Soon after I began doing the events, and consequently most of my disposable income was spent on music. DJing was always around, it first came about through natural wonder and experimenting with music. Now it only exists as a byproduct of a lust for good music."

What is the philosophy behind SAFE's events?

"There are all kinds of promoters with all types of priorities and intentions, just like musicians. For me, there is creativity and passion applied to creating the experience. The seeing through of many details adds up to what makes the shows special. The vibe and energy are absolutely everything. It's really not that hard to not compromise. We don't care for big or popular, we go for pure. I prefer small rooms, reaching a level of intimacy in the nights is a very gratifying thing. The smaller the room, the more honest everyone is, specially the DJ."
