“Electronic dance music is something I have loved all my life. I was raised on the sounds of Disco. When I’m mixing in the studio or on the decks, if the music is right, it completely takes over. I feel it deep in my soul. This music is about each and every one of us finding that moment deep in ourselves and letting go, forgetting about our troubles, and living in the moment.” —DJ DLG
