Your favorite decade: the 90s. I was a simple kid growing up in Queens, NYC. I liked to play Basketball, and also listen to music.

Certainly Michael Cretu had a big influence in this, when I discovered his records as Enigma, I immediately became a huge fan of his way to produce music and started imitating what he was doing with my poor machines! Only years later I discover that most of his tracks were just made by samples and I lost the fanaticism : the „dead“ of a legend for me … Your favorite song:...
