It was great I mean I don't know, I don't know how it was to growup n in the state. So I can't Copie Bo...

...going up and Cannis Great. I lovetravelling a in La in Laa lot of time. TYEAR ECAUSE IIOALOT S, Nis been great, O can', complain forsure and how' did you get into Dj like how'd, you first get into it my brothErlove. He was already doing this for Prilotan corporate events and he wasmarried to my sister somebaces to call he up one deask, how Lin to go and justhelp him out with the gifts lete up the gaile like fifty years old- and Ididn't know anything about thes thing. At that point, I guess I want to kindof a job toi get myself to Bek. I suppossed o busy and that's like Hav toknow it in six months within withen, working with Him II, some ear from themjust a Backa Ome II, and that's how I got into it, and I just went to everyevent that he was doing and just sat there and looking what he was doing interms of teacng ising songs, the music selection. How are you weet towns andthat's how I got intoit Godco Now? What's your method to picking the songsbefore like an event...

...music beforehand? Yes, WAT YO TAY! I always try to geep myselfup de with music, but for event it. It really depends on the advent of eating.Not every EVENIS. Okay could Di you, Chang Club, like a cul, sn, coat eventor wedding on whatever it is so in music is always different for thesekinds of events, I' Lik, I start playing hardcore hiphop in thecorporate event. That' average Agis around thirty fifty Eser Ur so in afterFTER, make sure that I know my cal and I don my Dusic for that kind of cloudand I played per year and I play for what I have in front of me yeah forsure, and how did you pick your name Dj, Youcee Oethatgive, MEA name when I wasfifteen and ICAUSE. My real name is actually Yo s Yossi and he woul alwayscall me Yo. So I guess I got it's stuck itime at a point and then that's how Istarted with that. Mame definitely...

...makes sense, and what's it like just traveling andtouring, I love it. I love it and I mean sometimes it does get tarlingwhiit's, really back t back to back to back of the PLANEES messn of planes.Waking up early going back, you knowto a GIG. We getbealy go to the airporttraveling going back towells. IT GETS TIRIN AL at one point, but if she pakesit up properly, I love it. I Love Me Beole, I love seeing you iplaces andthe kind of person I love socializing and Charley is it's always like aspessopressure and he initially received to Peuversity, and you learnone you tind of see how Cros re activie things you need other Djs, which isgreat to because Noyou Yos expending your circle of djs and yeah. That'sThati, love, coling, overall yeah for sure, and I get paid for it: Yeah N,that's the best part yeah and then I think you're in a unique position whereyou're from CANADAC. I was watching some older interviews and you HEU haveto mix it up with, like some French music to right yeah. I mean obviously,because I'm Foonja need to o the Lo the...

...culture over you bit more than thansomebody. That's not fomier, obviously, so think did a need to do that from anycity. Has Nos O, an morthe culture from that city to so when I'm her Aptentomake o fish music with Mysens Bat. If I'm like in New York, I won't do that.Aus Just won't work, but I think knowing the cultures, alittlbit ornowing, what wats? For them a little bit more like specific namsivs, is likesomesit Othe, music, O a DJ trade, more of a vive in front of a crowd yeah forsure an. What do you think is the biggest difference between Djn and likethe US versus can do there's a difference. O Say I know that everycity has its own culture yeah. But, let's be honest in terms of like sosefor MEDA and music in terms of like spotify youtube playlistonline ae day,everybody has the same kind of music, but it doesn't mean every cityappreciates the same kind of Isi say won ons a big house, USIC city. Also,Hey love in their house music in some...

...places, but they also Love Tho, hip hop.You know like in some places house music is more predominant than a hip.Bobit did rather your house than Hiphop, and you go somewhere else in in somecities, bap is on the case. Syo people want to hear more hiphop than they wante Your House music. So it just depends really. You have to be kind of aware,like I, such as a DGAN TOR, getting foked out of Ven, you for sure thepromoror, the DJ or the owner dose. What can Yo Sikor playing soe te expectthat kind of music being played at their venue, but you have to also kindof realize what, if I use all about o place are ready and what youjus an orlocal over there sat you kind of know what kind of music that they want tohear at yeah. Definitely- and I saw you work with Sugar Sammy. So what's thatexperience been like great, that Sero tiig's been is a comedian. It's beenblowing up in the community market for the past five six years, O and he'sbeen woing for a long time and he's been traveling all around the world,but he justdecided to focus more in CAA right now, jst and SINC E ten. Thathe's been blowing up like big time and...

...he's also not focusing in France at thesame time and he jus glowing up onit as well he's been doing a reality Tsh overthere. It's basicall crazy for him, so I nean ive e into on far six years nowand just opening up the shows- and it's just been a great experience.
