The track from my childhood that I’ll never forget
Jurassic Park Theme – Soundtrack to the first movie I saw in theaters. The theme still gives me chills and John Williams is pretty much a god when it comes to themes/soundtracks.
The track that inspired me to pursue a music career
One of the songs off Hatebreeder/Follow The Reaper by Children of Bodom. I picked up guitar because of this band which lead me to writing my own music.
The track I’d play during peak-time at Mysteryland USA
Spice Girls – “Spice Up Your Life” – It doesn’t get any more peak-time than this.
The track to fill the dance floor
My edit of Zomboy – “Like A Bitch” – the tempo switch up I did is perfect for getting everyone riled up. Add in the vocal that he used and eveyrone’s hands go up kind of like T-Pain.
The best track from my favorite new artist
Joyryde – “The Box” – Joyryde makes the dopest bass house in the game right now and the fact that he sampled Brad Pitt from se7en for his newest track.
The track I wish I made
Deadmau5 – “Strobe” – This is one of the tracks that really hooked me into dance music. Would’ve been awesome to have created something that inspired so many people to get into dance music.
The track that best represents my personality
Going to go with “Scary Monster And Nice Sprites” by Skrillex – The song has 2 main parts to it one being more melodic/chill and the other being wild and aggressive. Like most people I tend to go through different moods/phases sometimes I’m just trying to chill and sometimes I want to turn up and party.
The track I want playing as I walk on stage
Tiga – “Bugatti” (Torren Foot Bootleg) – Even though the song is about driving it has a nice groove to walk to.
The track for relaxing on vacation
Modjo – “Lady” – This track always takes me back to my first trip to Miami.
The track I hope to be remembered for
Not sure but I’d rather not be remembered for one specific track.
