Life is always the inspiration. The good times, the bad times, the dynamics that life offers. As I have experienced my life journey my musical output has been my journal whether it be a dj mix, track or performance. This mix is no different...
What are you listening to right now?
Yes, I’m a sucker for Detroit strings, electro bass lines and twisted acid...today listening to the new Plaid album, John Hester’s new masters for an infamous Detroit label, Lou Karsh’s double on FE, and test pressings of the new Further Electronix triple pack about to hit the streets.
You have always been very productive with your various projects over the years and this seems to also be the case in the studio posting new tracks every other week on soundcloud. How do you keep motivated and focused?
I have learnt that the one thing in life that keeps me sane is music and that is a powerful motivator. I have travelled, married, separated, and had three baby girls....and during this time I have experience immense joy and pain and it is the studio that helps me process all of these emotions....and yeah I’m always searching for the perfect beat....
Who or what is inspiring you musically and otherwise at the moment?
Always down with Mr G, enjoying the new Oculus release on AE, enjoying stuff coming out thru Clone such as Electro Empire, and new Hearse001.
You recently played an excellent live set for the first time in a while supporting DJ Bone. Any chance of more live shows in the future?
It was great doing the live thing....I seem to remember the last time I did a full live set was alongside Dave Clarke...seems like a lifetime ago. Come on promoters now is the time!
Where can we see or hear your next project?
soundcloud.com/biz track a week right!
Any upcoming releases or gigs?
I have a track coming out on the current Furthur Electronix comp due out next month, also a track locked in for the next one out in about 3 months. Lets not forget Transmat’s MS086 hitting the streets around late August.
Doing a gig with Derrick towards the end of this year, and hopefully a lot more to follow.
