ML&L - What and why were you inspired to start DJing and producing?
Kross - My love for the music was the main reason to turn my life in this direction.
ML&L - Tell us a bit about your first songs and your first gig.
Kross - My first performances were in the town where I lived, also in the next few days
I will give a performance there in the same place, but this time it will be in front of thousands of people, all very different! I will never forget where I come from and where I am going.
ML&L - Who or what has influenced you most musically? What artists initially inspired?
Kross - David Guetta, I think we, all of the electronic artists, could consider to him, our "father" and mentor on this job, I have a deep respect for David.
Steve Aoki also for his strength behind the decks, I've shared many gigs with him and he's a BIG professional and an
amazing guy, I can never stop to mention to the guys that inspired me on the beginning of my journey also, Swedish House Mafia, they will always be alive in my heart!
ML&L - What is the best part of life as a deejay?
Kross - No doubt, the love and respect of the public.

ML&L - What is the worst part about DJing?
Kross - Probably being away from family much of the time.
ML&L - What are some of the key moments in your career that have elevated you to where you are today?
Kross - No doubt there, when Miguel Pardo from Pacha gave me the opportunity to sign my contract with Pacha Agency, I will never forget that day.
ML&L - How do you prepare yourself for touring?
Kross - I dedicate many hours working at home with new music, in the studio,
I also try to have a normal life at home, rest when I can, eat healthy food, enjoy the company of my son and girlfriend.

ML&L - What would be your favorite live set?
Kross -Actually, I’ve reached one of my
biggest dreams already, playing for the Tomorrowland brand, at Unite in Malta last month.
It was a dream to me to close the main stage after the incredible set of Dj Snake, so sick!
ML&L - What is the longest set that you have ever played, and where was it?
Kross - Probably during a private events on Monaco, during Formula 1 there, around a 4h set, was really cool.
ML&L - How Ibiza influenced your style?
Kross - Obviously it has influence on me and my sets, but I try to be my own self always, and not another dj that is playing the same music as every one else in Ibiza.
ML&L - Where do you find the best audiences?
Kross - Not easy to answer! Some countries like Brazil, India, Italy, we work very good there, but I had very nice experience all around the world.
ML&L - How does a new project or collaboration come together?
Kross - I've just launched my last track, "Untouchable", feat. Christina Novelli, I'm very proud of this work.
