01. Where are you right now and what are you doing?

In Berlin doing this interview, currently sitting on my friend’s balcony catching the last bit of sun.

1982 (shhhhh).

Jules, Foxy, Cheese Face.

04. What’s the coolest thing in your house?

This vintage Kenwood Turntable and monitor system, which has Pioneer speakers connected to it, and it still totally booms.

05. How would you describe yourself?

Like a fine wine, that keeps getting better with age.

06. Worst experience as a DJ?

There have been a few crazy moments for sure, some experiences where no driver has come to collect you from the airport, or they have and definitely should not be driving. Or they just sleep in or keep partying and don’t show up to take you to the airport, small things like this, but in random and remote places in foreign countries it can be a bit daunting.

07. Best experience as a DJ?

Being able to play your own music to people, and doing something you love so much. It’s really an amazing feeling.

08. Favourite record label?

Drumcode Records.

09. What’s your biggest weakness?

There is a few for sure, but I usually have good will power. I will just say ice cream okay lol.

10. First record you ever paid for?

Kosheen – Hide U.

11. What’s your morning routine?

On a usual day at home it would be coffee, followed by some yoga or a run, then I would make some breakfast and sit at my computer to check up on emails and go over my to do list. Then usually I would be in my studio at least two days in a week.

12. Your dream collaboration?

I have already had some really special collaborations such as Green Velvet, Ramiro Lopez, Coyu, Spektre to name a few. But if I could it would be with Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, or Pan-Pot.

13. Tell us something we shouldn’t know about you?

I’m a great cook, I try not to let onto this too much though, otherwise people will be lining up at the door.

14. Who’s your biggest inspiration?

I don’t really have one alone. there was a lot of different influences for me. Like Donna Summer, Kevin Saunderson, Sven Vath, and outside of the electronic dance scene I love Placebo.

15. Ever smoked?

Once or twice.

16. Ever done drugs?

Possibly.

17. What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

I guess I could say my first car that my dad bought me when I was 16. A bright orange retro (as in old) Fiat.

18. And the best gift you’ve ever given?

I once flew back to Australia (where I was born), to surprise my mum as she wasn’t well at the time, and got my sister to pick me at the airport without her knowing. So I guess myself haha.

19. What’s the coolest place you’ve ever been to?

This is hard! I have been to so many incredible places to DJ especially. Burning Man would have to be the top though, and Afikaburbn. Then places like Fiji, Finland where I played inside a giant waterpark while it was snowing outside, and anywhere in South America really.

20. And one place you want to visit?

The Caribbean Islands.
