1. You are a DJ and a bar owner. Which is the bigger part of your identity ?

Hmm, i’ve always been about music, so I suppose DJ. For me it’s easy to combine though, since it’s all involved music.

3. What kind of music do you play?

I’m a sucker for millennium R’n’B music (Destiny’s Child, Janet Jackson, Brandy, Toni Braxton, Tyrese, TLC. etc) and I try to mix that all into a blend of new music. Always try to keep it very positive and very summer’ish.

4. You play at your own club Mau Mau in Copenhagen, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, where else do you play?

I try to play as much as I can at Mau Mau, but I do play all around Denmark.

5. You used to be a drummer, what’s the story ?

I’ve always loved drums, and when my mom moved us to Jutland, I was so bored so all I did was drumming all day, and kinda became really good. I’m self taught and that payed of really well, since I got a record deal by age 15.

6. You once told me that Metallica has never made a good song – I think you forgot to apologize for that… But did you mean it?

I really mean it. I don’t like the vocals. I like the grooves, but I can’t listen to music if I don’t like the vocals.

16. How do you feel about new young acts like Lil Pump and Tekashi 69 ?

21. You have tons of tattoos, how many exactly?

No idea.

 

 

 

22.When did you get your first one, and what was it?

When I turned 18. My knuckles, that way I heard I could never get a job. Perfect.

 

23. Ha ha good call. But why tattoos, what turned you on to it?

Just loved colors and why not put colors on my body that makes me happy.

 

24. When did you get your last tattoo, and what was it?

A week ago today. A portrait of Dennis Rodman. I’ve been a fan of him since the early 90’s. I always hope I’ll bump into him when im in the states haha.

 

25. Will you continue to get tattoos? Is there a limit?

It hurts, I wish I could just stop now, but I still need to finish my back.

 

26. Is there a place you will never be tattooed?

My eyes, i could never do that. Saw a full documentary of a guy doing that on youtube. 

 

27. Favorite tattoo?

Right now I love the Rodman one, but I could never choose just one.

28. Any tattoo(s) you regret?

I suppose, but they are all memories of a time that makes me who I am.

 

29. You grew up in Hundige, 2670 Greve just south of Copenhagen. Does that have any influence on your style and interests today?

Yes. Tracksuits, Sneaker & haircuts and all that reminds me of my childhood. Loved my childhood in Hundige. Sometimes I wish I could turn back time - My best memories are all from Hundige (Greve).

 

30. Where would you live if there were no limits (Denmark or anywhere in the world)?

LA. no doubt. I settle with New York as well haha

31. Who is an example of someone you look up to?

My mom. She’s enjoying life and staying youthful.

 

32. Favorite band / musician of all time, dead or alive ?

Michael Jackson, Prince. Never goes a day without listening to both of them.

I love danish music so many good pop acts at the moment. I especially love the song alexander oscar - Number. and Scarlet Pleasure and all that.

 

34. Favorite movie(s)?

White Men, Can’t Jump.

 

 

 35. You are a vegan, so dedicated that you ate nothing through the whole photo shoot with us. What are the benefits you feel that you get from the vegan lifestyle?

Well, I don’t eat meat and nor do I use milk products. I still use leather and such, so to call me 100% vegan wouldn’t be right, but I do not intake any animal products. I stopped using milk products many years back, and I rarely ate meat. So I figured, do I really wan’t to eat something that’s already dead. No. With that said, I rarely get sick now, I feel alot more energy and better skin, so there’s no reason to stop.

 

 

36. Also you never drink alcohol. How many years has it been, and why do you stay 100% sober?

I don’t like the feeling of not being in control, and I sleep really badly if I do. That’s why I never touch it. Boring story actually, haha

 

 

37. Question 37 is your, what would you like to say?

Stay positive and keep healthy.
