[on the DJ community] We've all sort of been in the battles and seen each other over the last 2 years basically. It's kind of like a nice little crew that's getting together. It's like meeting old friends y'know. We get together, we talk about DJ-ing and stuff and just what's been happening in each other's little lives. 
Me personally, a highlight for the weekend has gotta be a chance to check out all this local talent. We've gathered it from Christchurch, Tauranga, Wellington as well, well represented, and it's just been really good to establish that hip hop network and share the knowledge. 
I'm always conceptually gonna dance in my life even if I'm not actually on the floor. If you love music you're always gonna move and that's what dance is, letting the music move you.
