Your music have taken you to different parts of the world, Have one destination made an unexpected impression on you?
I’d have to say it was two places that left an unexpected impression… The first Being Kiev, Ukraine. It was right amidst all the troubles that were going on over there and was probably the most nerve wracking flight i’ve ever taken! Once on the ground I got speaking with the locals and realized how political and switched on everyone was over there. Got into an amazing after show discussion on the state of the country and the way in which the media has distorted the truth – very Eye Opening.
The Second has to be Montañita in Ecuador. A small coastal region that’s typically home to the surfer community actually holds one of the best clubs in the world Lost Beach Club. The owner Kami has basically designed a rave fortress with loads of little rooms leading off to god knows where an insane sound system and a really switched on audience – very crazy and inspiring place.
What inspired you for this release?
Getting back to the dance floor fully inspired this. Specifically I had a weekend off and decided to go out raving for once and just fell in love all over again – it was brilliant, being the other side of the booth just having it with my mates. The end result was a studio lock in and a gang of tunes specifically designed for the floor. It’s truly a thrill being the reaction when played out.
How does these upcoming months look like?
Interesting! off to Ibiza on Friday to play Pacha (yes in December) after a stacked season over there in the summer! you couldn’t make this stuff up….
