1.How long have you been spinning already?

-wow, that's a long time.
2.What's the best thing about being a dj?
Dj KidCut - The best thing for me as a Dj is being able to put your energy to the crowd. Push em up to have a great night on the dancefloor, and after the party they have to say „wow it was great“!
we agree, being praised for your work is priceless.
3.What influenced your music and style?
Dj KidCut - At first as a Dj my genre was house and techno. After five years, with great parties, I changed to HipHop incl. Funk & Soul. Because this is the real music. Mixing in techno and house isn`t challenging for me.
My Influences in techno are: Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Carl Cox & Jeff Mills … the hereos of techno.
And in hiphop: Dj Premier, Dj Recless, Dj AM (R.I.P), Dj Hillmatic and Dj Emilio
wow, good choice. RIP DJ AM.

6.What countries have you been to?(for work)
Dj KidCut - Without a professional Management in Germany it is very hard to come out of the country.

8.Who's your favorite dj?

9.What's your message to all those who aspire to be a dj?
Dj KidCut - At first it's a hard work. There is a lot of fun, but you must work the whole time. Check new music, coordinate your gigs and do promotion. In Germany they say: From nothing you become nothing. The beginning is very hard.
very well said.
