Q: Any collabs with kanye sometime in your future?

A: We did a couple of records around watch the throne i dont know what happened to them

Q: Hey man. Just wondering, why did Switch leave Major Lazer? Lack of interest/time?

A: Yeh it was never really something he loved.. from the beginning it kinda was like i would wirte the records he would mix them.. and then as i started touring .. he didnt want to tour .. thats basically it.. so i started to mix them myself or bring in guest for me.. i will say this . switch is probably the best and most progressive mixer ive ever worked with and he works with female vocals like a renaissance painter… hes stil a boss im meeting him tommorow

Q: What does your son think about you being on the road, making music, and partying? Is he interested in DJing/music as well?

A: He just started to collect music on his ipad he has 4 songs.. his favorites are good kisser and everything is awesome.. i love to drive with him and here the random songs that he likes on the radio.. he always try and play this ukelele i got him..

Q: When is the Jack U album coming out?

A: We are doing a mixtape…. its gonna be very cool.. first single is called “take you there” w kiesza i wanna try and get a stream of it out this week.

Q: How did you gather the courage to say f*ck it to teaching and become a dj?
