What is the track recommended in this dj set?

Well of course I recommed all of them.  Here is my fav from this set.  

 

How do you approach a DJ set? What is your configuration and your way of transmitting emotions?

I love to take listeners on a journey. Creating an experience where everything is forgotten for a period of time. I pick tracks that resonate with my soul and that I am always inspired to play. That is at the heart of every mix I make.

What music do you listen to when you take off your DJ headset?

I have eclectic tastes and enjoy every type of genre of music.

 

Your reference artists / DJs / producers or what advice do you follow?

Right now, I am really enjoying the work of SIS, Newman, Matt Sawyer, T.M.A, Riva Starr and Bedouin
