DJ Slim V: Depends on what’s on the table
Mr Baker: As an artist, what inspires you to do what you do and what message do you intend to send out through your work?
DJ Slim V: I’d say my inspiration comes from my clients or people watching me do what I do. The fact that I bring people happiness and joy and the feedbacks I get after each job makes me want to come out each time and do better

DJ Slim V: Well I’ve been doing this for a while and I can proudly say a lot has changed
DJ Slim V: I am a very temperamental person but over time I’ve learnt to be more accommodating considering the fact that different clients have and exhibit different behaviours, so somehow I have been able to be more calm and understanding of people and how to deal with them, and I have tried to pass that down to my team too
My style is unique
