Q; Before we dig in, tell us about your latest project.
Q; What cocktail (or drink) recipe is getting you through the pandemic?
Q; What is your first musical memory?
Q: What’s the most useless talent you have?
Q; If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?
Q: You must survive in the Amazon Rainforest for a year. Which 3 DJs or industry friends would you take with you and why?
Q: Which fictional character would be the most exciting to meet in real life?
Q: Amsterdam, New York, or Tokyo?
I love Amsterdam because it’s such a fun part of Europe and not too far from home but I think I would have to pick Tokyo – it really feels like stepping into another world and I’ve been lucky enough to play a number of festivals and events in that part of the world including S20 and my own solo show dates. I can’t wait til we can all be able to safely travel again soon!
Q: Do you sing in the shower?
Yes, but it is usually what is on the radio at the time!
Q: And finally, what’s on your Netflix watch list?
I’ve been watching Belgian series Over Water and Undercover and I’ve also been watching The Mandalorian from Star Wars!
