AS BRINKA CAME UP WITH A UNIQUE ORIGINAL CONCEPT TO PLAY A COWBELL AND WHISTLE TO TRY AND WIN THE COMPETITION THAT HAD WELL OVER 40 DJ’S, HIS IDEA TOOK NOTICE VERY QUICKLY, AS HE BEGAN TO PERFECT THE THEATRICS WITH HIS MUSIC. THEN CAME A CRAZY VISIONAL DREAM ABOUT A GAS MASK ON WHILE HE PLAYED, THIS CONCEPT BECAME REALITY ALONG WITH OTHER MASKS, GLOW STICKS AND PROPS BEING USED. BOOKING REQUESTS SHOT UP, AS BRINKA FOUND A NICHE.

• Name 3 songs that are stuck in your head right now.
- Can you feel it by The Jacksons, Desnudate Mujer by Frankie Ruiz & Only One by Chris Lake
• What advice could you give to an aspiring DJ trying to break it in the mainstream market?
- DJ's trying to break in need more experience, my advice is to always do private gigs, like weddings, and sweet 16's for at least 3 or 4 yrs, learn how to operate sound equipment, and master very simple basics like learning to mix well.
• What are some of your hidden talents?
- I'm actually a very good baseball player.
• What is the craziest thing a fan has done to get your attention?
- Seen it all, but I'd have to say those chic's who like to grab my ass is in front of their boyfriends are pretty crazy!
• Is there an artist you would like to work with but haven’t got a chance to?
- Always wanted to work with Kanye West
• What are you currently working on so that fans could be looking forward to?
- Currently coming up with an actual show production for big nightclubs that will involve various elements from live instruments to specialized dancers, and even pyrotechnics! It's a high cost production, and besides Tiesto it hasn't been done much.
• Where can you be found?
