J: I play as DJ weekly, but always in different situations in the term of “sound”. I can easily switch between EDM, House or Techno, without problems about music selection.

F: This is an horrible question. Jurij hates me cause i dont want to play live no more, i only do that when we got two bookings in the same day. But…i dont know, now i feel so. Maybe tomorrow will be different.

(to Jurij) Dont look at me that way!

5 – What has been your favorite moment in music?

J: The best moment in music is always when your friends call you and tell you “I heard your song on radio”

F: The best moment is when we have a song on airplay and no one can recognize me goin’ around cause 

i’m at home!!! I hate that, i’m shy! Another nice moment is when someone stop me askin me “Sorry but are you…” and i stop him quickly sayin’ “no, i’m not”. Oh god, i love that moment!

6 – Where is the best place to find you online?

J: On facebook and youtube check our video!
