I know that my "dj_burn" releases have known a

was much less shy to show my works to my
friends and mates, that may explain my success.
Now it has got different: I prefer not to put too
much of my music on the Internet. Once a track is
finished, polished and available on here, what's
the point to hear it again, once released?

The reason is simple: I like my music evolving

styles. I'm interested in global electronic music,
and this field is really vast! There are so much
things waiting to be created. I also want to be able
to make any kind of electronic music if I'm ever
asked to.

something about your style of dancing?"
Dance is, just like music or painting and many
others, a way to express ourselves. I've learned a
few styles in my life, mostly urban: 2-Step, Hip-
Hop, Melbourne Shuffle (which is quite poor,
therefore calling for one's imagination), C-Walk,
House, and even Dance Dance Revolution! I try to
combine all of them, that's what makes my style.
One tip to all dancers: once you got a move that
you like, keep on practising it and never give up
even though it looks like shit at the beginning!

"What do you think about Myspace?"
And there is the cliché: "Myspace is dead". What
killed MySpace is MySpace itself, allowing anyone
to post his/her music freely. Everyone thought
that it was possible, so we suddenly got thousands
and thousands of new so-called artists who could
barely hold a guitar and play 3 chords, using
automatic friend adders and message senders to
tell the rest of the world about their music. A large
amount of people, a few artists: that's what
Myspace has become. Sadly, Soundcloud is
heading the same way: people are promoting their
stuff in inboxes or by commenting a track. Is
there any future for music on the Internet?
But I liked the way we could edit our profiles on
MySpace: we could build a whole universe, make
our own banners and put them, select our own
colours, cursors, etc... having our own space, like
it says.
