      DJ Wehbba: I can't switch off from music

      The only thing I carried from my time as a dentist over to the music was my devotion to research and to acquiring knowledge.

In music, it's very easy to conform to formulas and stick to a plan, so I'm happy I was able to experience what I did as a dentist and learned how to keep “flexing the muscle” in my brain, says the emblematic electronic music DJ from Brazil in an interview to Europost.
