Guess what Celebrity DJ/GSA Nominee is set to fly overseas to DJ a SoulCycle class??!! SoulCycle & Germany’s Air force base has teamed up to bring you a SoulCycle USO pop-up studio, and yes the one and only DJ Irie was there #1!!!

DJ Irie sat down to speak with SoulCycle to discuss what inspires him, what music legend he’d love to meet, his go-to karaoke song lol, his first experience with SoulCycle and more.

Check out the transcript below.

How did you get into music?
I was always interested in music as a kid. My dad had a music room instead of a television room in our house and would play music every evening until it was time to go to bed. I guess it left a lasting impression on me because ever since I just always had to be around music.
What inspires you when you’re producing a song?
I really get into music production. I have a home studio, which is great because many times I’ll get a stroke of inspiration in a club or event and I go home and get right on it. I draw inspiration from all around me — especially from many of the new up-and-coming producers.
What was your first concert that you attended?
I was actually living in Jamaica attending boarding school at the time when Shabba Ranks came to town and did a big concert. It was an amazing experience and I was hooked!
What about the first show you performed?
My first public showing was for a private New Year’s Eve party in Miami and it was the most nerve-wracking experience of my entire life!
What is your go-to karaoke song?
When I step into the karaoke spot, they usually hide the microphone, but if I manage to get my hands on it I’m belting out “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell or “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey.
Which fellow musician would you most like to meet?
Stevie Wonder.
Tell us about your first SoulCycle experience.
To sum it up it, it HURT SO GOOD!
What inspired you to DJ for SoulCycle’s USO Tour in Germany?
I have such deep admiration for the brave men and women who make up our armed forces. I believe we should always do all that we can to show them our appreciation so when the opportunity to participate in the USO Tour in Germany arose, there was no way I was going to miss it.
