Favourite genre outside your own?
"Probably funk/disco... the best original drums and vibes hands down."
"It's got to be the man like Andy C. I went to his All Night show at Alexandra Palace and it was one of the best nights I've been to — a proper education in the history of D&B. And then there's the nights he ran at XOYO. I managed to get down to the Andy, Randall and Storm night and it was everything I wanted it to be. Too many classics to mention!"
What record is top of your wishlist?
"I have a lot of records. Over the years I've managed to get most of them but I only have 'Atlantis' by LTJ Bukem on a compilation, I'd love to have that on one track per side original press."
What's the best club you've played at?
"It's got to be Weidendamm in Hannover, Germany. Fabric comes in at a close second but there's just something about that club in Hannover. The name means 'Willow Tree' in German because there's a 'tree' in the middle of the dancefloor. With the changing of the seasons the 'tree' (which is a huge light display of hanging LEDs, etc.) in the centre changes to follow. No-one there is on their phone. No-one is trying to look cool, it's just got such a vibe."
Who is your biggest musical influence?
"Wow... got to be Skeptical or Alix Perez — those guys inspire me so much. Such a raw and unique sound without being overproduced. Their sound is something I'm still aspiring to."
