So Flash, what can Australian audiences expect from your tour?
A DJ musical teachers history lesson, what I attempt to do is, I’m gonna start off with the struggling years. The struggling years is the music that I played before I was famous, before I had a record, before I had a popular name, before I was a star. I’m going to play the music of the years where skill was what you had to have in order to survive...... Then I’m gonna slowly bring it up to 2003 from a dj’s standpoint.
Tickets for the tour have been selling fast, so get in quick if you're wanting to go.
