Let's Get To Know Helsinki Project
1- Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Dublin, Ireland. Not Finland! 2- What is one of the first songs you remember liking as a kid?
Probably Eye Of The Tiger by Survivor. Or Thriller by Michael Jackson. 3- What influenced you to get into music?
I've always enjoyed listening to music. I used to cut, edit and mix songs I recorded on tapes when I was about 13. I then DJ'd in my early teens, buying Trance and House music with my best mate, who sadly passed away this year. Then I got some really crappy software to make my own music on. It was god awful stuff but it planted a seed that grew.

6- What are some of your favorite songs at the moment?
'Lost In The Cloud' by Waveshaper. 'Andromeda' by Vogel. 'Space and Subconscious' by Carbon Killer. 'Dust + Stars' by Rogue VHS. I could go on and on with stuff!!

8- Which musician would you like to collaborate with next?
So, so many. Dynatron, Waveshaper, Lyde, Absolute Valentine to name a few. I'd imagine I co
