Had the honor to see this living legend live at Ozora in 2017. I remember it looked like he had a full studio set up on stage and worked his magic continuously on various gadgets. On top of that it turned out he was brilliant at presenting the music verbally, being able to smoothly and confidently add some lyrical flavor to the music. Something I'm def not used to within my normal DJ circuit. Honestly it's one of the best electronic performances I've ever seen and experienced.
Words are unnecessary of his On-U legacy. I can only say that I keep coming back to it often, and have no plan to stop. That rabbit hole goes as deeeeep as my respect for this man.
