We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The road of being an artist/musician is always rough. A lot of people and your family will tell you that the music industry is a hard path or career to take because of its instability. You will also get criticized by many that doesn’t like your music. But I take all of those emotional energy in and it helps me fuel my music with the hardship that I am dealing with on this path.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a music artist/producer, DJ, and audio engineer. The most achievement that I am most proud of is when I remixed “Bruno Mars – That’s What I Like” and got played internationally on most radio stations, clubs and music festivals. It also got featured on US and Philippines Billboard as Top 3 remix for that song. It also garnished more than 10 million plays/views collectively. I also won the 2018 remixer of the year with this remix. What sets me apart from others is I do all genres. I’m also currently doing Korean pop or Korean music.

What are your plans for the future?
My future plan or currently working on is to start a record label called “S.A. Entertainment AKA StereoAdiks Entertainment” which only going to focus on Korean music with my close friend Michael Jerome Mambaje AKA Memorej.
