About the winner
We asked Felix House & Max Kartel to tell us a little about themselves:
– We Are Felix House & Max Kartel and we reside in Miami. We have been producing for 3 years and our software of choice is FL Studio. We are both 21, and have pretty much the same taste in music. We spend most of our time producing, working and when we are not doing any of those we are probably sleeping,having some beers or burning pinecones.
We are not really your typical "DJS", dont really enjoy going to clubs unless we are performing,showing support to our fellow dj friends or watching one of our favorite artists. We are the type of guys that would go home after performing to watch the brand new episode of South Park, Lifted.
