So tell you a bit about what you have been upto this year so far??
So far this year started pretty cool I got my new setup for my studio ready .. and started a lot on working on my new stuff for this year :)
So you have some cool new release’s coming out soon, tell us a bit more about these tracks??
In summer there will be my release on “This and That” label which is the new label from Davide Squillace which I’m really looking forward. I have also done a remix for Matteo Spedicati & Vito which is also for “This and That” label. There will be an exclusive track for a compilation for Steve Lawler’s “Viva Music”. I’m also working together with Johannes Heil on a new release. Beside all of this, a ton of remixes for artists such as Peter Horrevorts, Per Hammer, Danny Serrano, Olderic.
You also have a different alias “Bad Pimps” with G-Force, tell us a bit more about this project??
Oh yeah hehe.. Bad Pimps. This was and is a fun project, with one of my best friends, Stanny Franssen. The main subject behind this is to combine old funky soul & hip hop tracks EG, James Brown / 2 live crew / George Clinton etc, with kinda funky techno. So when we had gigs together, it was a combination of an live performance and dj’ing … we spinned regular tracks and I jammed over those old classics, and the greatest thing about it was that everytime you see the people dancing with a big smile in their face :) ….. there’s video on youtube where we played at Nature One.
What’s been your favourite gig to date??
Kinda hard to say because so many gigs have special storys to tell, but of course a huge shout out to the party people of Melbourne that was a insane experience. I have had a lot of my favorite gigs there!
Who were your influences when you first started getting into music??
To be honest it was just old computer games. I really felt into love of that chip music… that was the reason why I got me a commodore c-64 and to play around with soundmonitor to create my first freaky songs hehe, and well of course I used it also to play games :)
What was the first record you ever bought??
Oh this is soooo hard to tell because my parents had tooooons of records… from Wilson Picket, Groover Washington to Deep Purple and Santana, SOS band, Gap band and so on… so I had all the time kinda cool music around me. But the funny thing is the first record I bought wasn’t a music record… it was a record from a german comedian Otto Walkes… sigh ;) sorry no cool stuff to tell here… haha!
