We dig deep into what it takes to climb the ladder as DJ, producer, and label owner. And the importance of discipline and consistency to be the best at what you do.
“The more you do one thing, the better you get. That’s how you start. There’s no discussion that after a while you’re gonna get better at it. It’s proven”
