How do you handle music requests?

Take them case by case.

What do you do when equipment goes on strike?

Shut down and reboot

What are your musical influences from childhood?

NYC house. Everyone from David Morales, Tony Humphries, Frankie Knuckles, Little Louie Vega and Todd Terry.

Is it even possible to argue about musical tastes?

I’m sure it is since everyone has an opinion. It’s a society thing, not context.

Which track would run when you moved into your boxing match?

Richie Hawtin/Plastikman – Spastik

What was the worst job you ever had?

Construction job doing concrete foundations.

Describes your sound to someone who has never heard it before.

Classic Piano House.

Do you have any good tour stories from clubs or festivals?

I used to promote raves in the 90’s. At one of our very first party’s at 9 AM, the police were there hanging out and a cop left his car running with the doors unlocked. Someone all tweaked out got into the car, looked straight up and slammed his foot on the gas revving the engine really loud. Thank fully he didn’t put it in drive before doing so. The cops pulled him out of the car and said to him “what were you thinking?” His response was that he thought it was a rocket.

What would you advise to become a professional?

I would advise to do music for the love of it. Always make music for yourself as personal expression. At the end of the day, no one will appreciate your music more than you. If you do well and begin to generate income, then start treating it like a business.
