In a series of interviews with the scene’s most respected players and Miami WMC veterans, DMC World Magazine caught up with Sneak to get his views on the state of the WMC, cheesy DJs, the best parties and the biggest tracks.

I usually spend the winter months back home preparing tracks for the rest for the year, and living in Toronto allows me to stay inside all winter till I get to Miami, then it’s hustle time.
