He likes to get the crowd dancing with energetic, fun EDM and when the vibe is right he’s not afraid to set it off with some big, floor shaking bass drops. He doesn’t forget to throw in a few of today’s dance hits to really capture the good energy. So come experience the universal language of good music.
