What inspired you for this release?
I actually wrote these two tracks while I was pregnant with our little Isabella. They are bouncy and bumpy. Like I felt at the time I guess.. I always get inspired by dark sounds and deep basslines. I try to incorporate that in all of my music. I find it particularly nice to work with remixers from all over the electronic spectrum. Everybody adds a different flavour to their mix and the EP takes on a personality of it’s own.
How does these coming months look like for you?
I’m swamped with label stuff. It’s a lot but I love it. It’s much more administrative than I had expected so there’s time devoted to Kuukou, as well as my shows which occupy most weekends. I also carve out a significant amount of time for my little family, Paul and Isabella are my life, but our “ninja princess” is going to preschool in September so I’ll have more time for production and, of course, label admin. It’s a balancing act. Family is King. Work is Queen. And I’m the Jack of all trades, it seems.
