AUX: What was your introduction to DJing? What made you want to start?
DJ Crunch: The very first time I saw a live DJ perform. I knew I wanted to be up there one day.
Who/what are your main influences, and why?
I'd have to say A-Trak, because he's both a great DJ, and an equally great producer.
What's the ultimate party foul for a DJ?
Noticeably off-mixes, and excessive talking over the music.
Best party you've ever been to and why?
One of the best must have been Skrillex at Wrongbar.
Why is it important for Canada to have an event like Bud Light Sensation?
Canada has a lot of support for, and amazing fans of EDM ― if you'd like to call it that. The diversity and knowledge of music lovers in Toronto and every major city around the country is vast, and extends beyond what outsiders might imagine.
