[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.– P. Money
