Q: Please introduce yourselves.

Hello, I am Jean-Patrick Simonetti, a House Music Producer under the pseudonym, Workerz, for the past decade.

I am from Corsica originally, but I have made Paris my home base for the majority of my time now.

Q: One person you'd dream to have a coffee with?

Bobby Caldwell

Q: If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

I would love the ability to fly. The thrill of soaring high (figuratively) and exploring any place without difficulty, and importantly, without leaving a carbon footprint, is undeniably appealing. 

Q: If given the opportunity to create a film score, which movie would you choose and why?

I would relish the opportunity to re-edit the soundtrack for "A Bronx Tale". It is one of my all-time favorite movies and the idea of re-sampling the entire original soundtrack, especially the jazz-infused music that encapsulates the streets of the Bronx and its storyline, is thrilling. I would create a house edit for all the tracks. I've previously sampled a track from it, Bobby Watson's "Bus Talk", for a track I named "A Bronx Tape".


Q: Who has been the most influential in your music career? And who has been the most influential in your personal life?

In terms of influence, it's difficult to pinpoint a single individual who has made the most impact in my life or music. However, in music, Para One struck a chord with me in 2005 with his unique approach to electronic music, and it continues to inspire me.In my personal life, as an avid boxing fan, I find the indomitable spirit of certain boxers, both in and out of the ring, to be inspiring, particularly their resilience in the face of defeat.  

Q: Could you share with us your journey – the good and bad experiences that have brought you to where you are today?

My musical journey has been a roller coaster of highs and lows. There have been times when I could sustain myself solely through music and times when I had to supplement my income with side jobs because music alone was not enough. Balancing work and finding time to create new music became a challenge, but reminding myself that this is a passion and not merely a career drastically shifted my perspective. Today, I find joy in creating and sharing music as widely as I can. This alone fills my everyday life with love and passion.


Q: Everyone goes through ups and downs, what’s one habit you adopt to push through the downs?

I remain grounded by focusing on what's real, staying connected with friends and family, and fostering a positive outlook. 

Q: What is one pro work ethic that you would recommend to the readers/listeners?

Please, always maintain politeness.  

Q: How has your music style evolved over the years?

When I first started producing music in 2006, my approach was quite different from what it is today. I initially sought to create powerful bangers, but over time, I've come to appreciate the charm of dialing down the power to enhance the groove. My aim has always been to incorporate depth and spontaneity into my music. While my sound has evolved, my purpose has remained constant: to express feelings.


Q: If you were to venture into another music genre, which one would you choose and why?

I would likely delve into Hip-Hop or R&B. I find the sample-based production and the myriad of influences that one can incorporate to be similar to my current approach. Perhaps if I continue to slow down the rhythm, I may eventually produce a concept EP of slow-tempo grooves.

Q: Could you name 3 tracks that got you into electronic music and why?

Daft Punk - Rollin' & Scratching

Para One - Dudun-Dun

St Germain - What’s New


The impact of these tracks upon first listening was indescribable, and that sense of awe remains potent to this day.  


Q: Can you recommend a hidden gem in your home country that would be perfect for a rave?

Most of Corsica is an undiscovered gem that would make a perfect rave location. 

Q: Could you tell us about your upcoming releases and plans for the year?

I am excited to announce that I will be releasing a new EP with Feedasoul, scheduled for release in July. I am thrilled to share this three-track EP, which is designed to resonate with club audiences, albeit with a touch of warmth.


I am currently preparing a live set that should be ready after summer. My goal is to perform as much as possible, as is the case with most artists, I assume. I also plan to produce more and strive for more exclusive releases via my own Bandcamp. 

Q: Can you share a fun fact about yourself that most of your listeners are probably unaware of?

I have been producing music with no speakers, relying solely on headphones for years now.
