Q: How would you describe yourself in one word?
Q: What was the driving force that got you into Music Production and when?
A visit to the Frankfurt OMEN Club in the early 90s. The energy in the room, the amazing sound and the overall vibe. I had a rather unsatisfactory basic musical education as a child, but the desire to create own music only came that night.
Q: Analog or Digital? And why?
Hybrid. I love my analog gear and it's a vital factor why my productions sound the way they do, but VST´s have made a massive development over the past years in sound. Especially in terms of mixing and finalization, I am entirely digital now. When it comes to new hardware, I also see many of the most exciting developments in the combination of both worlds.
Q: What's your favorite venue and why does it stand out from the rest?
That changes every now and then. At the moment, I feel most comfortable at my homebase club in Frankfurt called FREUD. The club has a very special Frankfurt vibe. Small, raw and dark but still cozy and inviting. It has constantly been developed further in the past years and became my favorite place. This is the playground, where I can try out new music or technology will always get this family feeling. Come visit us!
Q: What makes a DJ set standout from the rest?
That of course is very subjective. From a ravers point of view, I always have the best times when the DJ has a feel for the situation (maybe no hardstyle to warm up), takes you on a musical journey (no wanna hear the same beat for 3 hours) and knows his handcraft in terms of mixing skills, finding the right energy levels and handling a big sound system. If the DJ also manages to drop mind-blowing tracks, I'm all yours.
Q: If you were to have a superpower, what would it be and why?
As so many of colleagues, I must agree that teleportation would be the ultimate superpower to a DJ. Once you have spent enough lifetimes in airports, planes and hotels, this is all you ask for.
Q: 1 person you'd dream to have a coffee with?
There is a couple of producers and songwriters, that I’d love to meet and learn from. Quincy Jones for example or Rick Rubin.
Q: If you would have been given the chance to do a film score from the past, what movie would you choose and why?
Pulp Fiction. The moment when the images and soundtrack technically merge for the first time must have been magical for everyone involved.
Q: Recommend a hidden gem in your home country that would fit a perfect rave?
Frankfurt Skyline Rave. Every skyscraper hosts different genres, styles and vibes.
Q: What are 3 tracks that got you into electronic music?
Hardfloor – Acperience
Resistance D. – Human EP
Acid Jesus – Jesus
Q:Tell us a fun fact about yourself that most of your listeners don’t know
I always carry a pair of headphones with me. No matter what. I get really tense and nervous when I don’t, even if I wouldn’t even need them at all.
Q: Tell us about your upcoming releases and plans for this year.
For this year, in addition to the EPs that have just been released on Cécille, Personality Disorder and Pleasure Zone, there is another EP on MOAN in the starting blocks. LEON (IT) delivered a great remix, it will be released at the beginning of December and is more in the deep tech direction. Finally and at the end of the year there will be my remix for Damian Lazarus & Gorgon City on Crosstown Rebels.
