Rui (Katana) is a true gentleman and it’s always a pleasure to see him. He is always on top of the clothes/sneaker game and always rocking it well. He has been DJing for years and is now working for Serato. In the last year or so he has been turning heads with his outstanding mix tapes whilst maintaing a busy DJ schedule.
Below we have a few questions for Katana. Check it out below along with his latest mix ‘TRAP&B Mix III’.
