Eye yo eye it´s a killer album with five new tracks that are not in other compilations, it´s very powerfull and danceable, i hope that people like it!

-You have problems with this places in the internet where you can shared music, like napster or audiogalaxy?

Yes, i got a lot of problems with that, i¥m not agree because all the magic of music is stollen also the labels have serious problems.
Many people want to get unreleased tracks with care of nothing, also i have bad experiences with that.......i really don´t like this sites, please don´t do that people!

-What do you think about Mexico?

I like Mexico, it´s a big city with an extraordinary culture, the people is very warm over here........i think its an important place for any artist to play here, i like it!

-Did you like parties here?

First i thought that my better party was in japan but know i think that my better party is here in mexico!

-Do you have future plans or projects?

I¥m working 100 % in the promotion of eye to eye cd, and i´m working in some tracks with atomic pulse, alien project and things like that.

-Do you think that Mexico has a good trance scene for international artist?

Trance in mexico it´s very nice, is a good place to show the people my music...... of course is a good place for any international artist to come here, beacuse the parties are good.
But i think that you need to push your artist because i don¥t know any mexican artist .......
So show your artist, show your music...

-So, thanx for the little chat and i hope you´re back soon here!
