Where are you based:
I am based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
1. Why do you play music?
I have always played music for as long as I can remember. From playing the piano, and violin for 11 years during my childhood, along with classical music theory, playing music came at an early age. Why do I do it now? To continue my passion to bring the best music my eclectic tastes to an equally intelligent and varied audience.
2. What do you see as your role in the music world going into the future?
This year I celebrate 20 years as a DJ. I started when I was 18 in London. As time moves on, I see my role moving more towards remixing and production as well as expanding with my new techno-alter ego into performing live with a greater range of styles.
3. Favorite label or artist from the past year?
There have been so many labels and artists of interest, I have been truly overwhelmed with new names and labels. One that truly sticks in my mind is “Tale of Us” and their techno productions. Emotional, moody, romantic techno that feels lovingly crafted as it is a cold, industrial sound.
4. What are you looking forward to most this year?
I’m looking forward to another crazy summer traveling. I’ll be heading back to the United States for three weeks in May covering four cities, San Francisco, Seattle, Fort Lauderdale and Chicago, leaving on Monday, arriving Tuesday morning back in Frankfurt, then leaving again Wednesday for a week in Tel-Aviv for Pride. Life on the wing can be a lot of fun. Tiring, but fun!
5. What do you like to wear to bed?
I don’t wear anything to bed. J
