Tzinah: To start with, please, recommend us something to listen to while we go through this interview. It can be anything.
Jozhy K: I would like to give you another one my latest mix:

Tzinah: Could you remember when and where have you felt it for the first time that you were to become a music artist?
Jozhy K: From early childhood, I was interested in music … I’ve learned to play on musical tools and was improvising with everything. Later in school I’ve become interested in DJing and that was the beginning of my DJ Career. My first performance took place in 2003.

Tzinah: Why did you choose to create and play this particular type of music? Are there any artists that touched you deeply while developing your own style?
Jozhy K: These rhythms make me dance, these rhythms are heard inside me
A tremendous influence on on me, were the Romanian artists that I had the opportunity to listen to here in Odessa, at different parties.

Tzinah: Please, briefly, describe for us, the current state of the underground music scene in the place you come from. Is it any good?
Jozhy K: Actually I came from the west of Ukraine and currently living in the south of Odessa. I want to say that this city is the center of the underground in Ukraine.

Tzinah: Without giving out too much about your secret weapons, please tell us how does the magic work in your production routine. Software? Analog? What does your DJ set-up imply?

Jozhy K: The key to my sounding is my mood. It is a driving force in the creation of music

Tzinah: Which underground house DJ or producer would you love to take out for a summer picnic? With which artist (from any music genre) would you spend 24 hours stuck in an elevator?
Jozhy K: There are so many talented and interesting artists that I would like to know better. Many of them I have respect for what they do and at the same time they are honest and open people!

Tzinah: Have you already played in your most-dreamed about venue or are you currently working on it? Which one is that?
