Interview with Push It Magazine

Here's an interview I did last year which appeared in Push It Magazine in April 2010.

WHERE ARE YOU BASED NOW?
London.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WHAT YOU DO?
I’ve been DJing and promoting for about 5 years but making music for longer!

WHERE DID YOU STUDY?
Well, I studied sound engineering and production but most of what I do is based on studying life around me.

WHAT MADE YOU GET INTO THE CLUB SCENE?
I find clubs a really interesting place to play out new ideas and stir things up. I meet lots of the outcasts whose survival and creativity inspires me.

FASHION ICONS?
Not really sure what fashion icons are. Stylish people that inspire me tend to be in streets and in clubs. I’m not really drawn to celebrities or famous people unless they’re talented. Fashion doesn’t really seem the right word to describe that.

WHERE’S THE HOTTEST PLACE TO GO RIGHT NOW?
Caligula at The Bathhouse. It’s the weekly Friday nighter I’m running with London’s style icon Leo Belicha. The most amazing venue – a Victorian Turkish baths in a churchyard. Don’t take my word for it – Caligula is currently Number One in Time Out’s most viewed clubs online.

WHO SHOULD WE BE LOOKING OUT FOR?
Clothing: Digitaria; Komakino. Music: Jupiter Heroes, More Light More Power, Bishi and Kap Bambino!

DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Chavvy Peter Pan with half a brain.

WHAT DO YOU MISS WHEN YOU ARE NOT AT HOME?
I miss people not objects – well apart from my laptop and I generally take that with me.

IF YOU COULD BUY A PLANE TICKET WHERE WOULD YOU GO?
Brazil. A lot of the music I play is influenced by African and Brazilian music. Brazilians know how to have fun and I want to down and dirty with them in Rio.

WHAT’S THE HOTTEST TREND IN THE UK RIGHT NOW?
Darkness glowing with hope. Think Ready Brek Goth.

COOLEST PERSON?
Every old lady that’s managed to adapt to life without Woolie’s (Woolworth was a UK shopping institution that has recently gone bust).

WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
Bishi – she’s a uniquely, talented singer, songwriter and sitar player.

MAKE A WISH?
That people’s preoccupation with fashion will prove to be a passing phase.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO PUSH?
A Woolworth’s trolley – just for old time’s sake.
