“I like to ease into the environment & suss the vibe/crowd out before I play”

What's your favourite way to find new music? 

Spending at least four hours in a record shop digging and listening digging and listening. For me, its the best way to find new old music which is what the majority of my record collection consists of. I love finding weird second hand records with writing on the sleeves from previous owners, something special about that part - knowing the record has had a journey and made people dance before. 

What do you best like to do when you're not making music or DJing?

Eating. I love food a lot - I like to cook for my pals on a Sunday. Nothing beats drinking wine and eating food with your pals.

What do you best like to do when you're not making music or DJing?

I love to cook. I guess it must be the creative side of me but similarly to my music I enjoy experimenting with my food, taking inspiration from a chef I admire or a country I’ve just visited.  I take my time in the kitchen and it can be a great escape at times from all things music!

How do feel about social media and the role in plays in creative culture today?

On a personal level I’m definitely not a fan, and generally don’t subscribe to a more digitally social lifestyle. However it’s allowed for a much bigger melting pot of culture and art. It’s without a doubt had an incredibly positive influence on art and music as we know it at the moment. For me, accessibility is key for any sort of creative exploration or progression and social media today plays right into that. Whether you like it or not other people’s opinions and creations are forced into your line of sight, every experience is shared now globally and it’s shaped much richer and more diverse creative environment.

Tell us about an artist you’ve recently discovered and what it is about their music that you enjoy?

DJ Shufflemaster. He’s a Japanese DJ/Producer - I stumbled across his productions on discogs and I was instantly hooked on his sound. Im playing a little harder in my sets recently and his music is the kind of techno I love - rolling, punchy and rhythm driven with cool vocals under layered. Its quite intense but I love it.
