During Miami’s epic Ultra Music Festival and MMW early last month, some of dance music’s most acclaimed contributors touched down in the city for a several day romp through one of the country’s most attended event series of the year. While the endless pool parties and specially curated events took place, some DJs were actually able to find a moment to relax and enjoy ourselves. Those like Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, NERVO, Afrojack and Armin van Buuren took a brief slice of their time in Miami to sit down with iHeart Evolution and engage in a quick, visual game.

The Rorschach test they were given is comprised of five unique images, and lends a wide host of creative potential. From Darth Vader and a samurai to an orgy, the DJs questioned aren’t held back from answering with their best ideas. For fun, read their responses below.
