What are your top 3 oldskool techno tracks?
Its always difficult to choose, I like probably most of Jeff Mills and Surgeon so I’d say - Surgeon - klonk, pt1
- Jeff mills - life cycle
- Joey Beltram - Game Form
What’s number 1 on your bucket list?
I guess I’ve already done it! I quitted my job a year ago to focus on music because I’m still young and I don't want to have any regrets in my life. I’m gonna see how it goes within the next years, then I might travel a lot, its kind of a dream to discover the entire world and get more and more inspiration.
What’s the most underrated equipment/software you have in your setup?
The pingpong delay effect from Ableton.
If you were a classical musician, what instrument would you play?
When I was younger I used to play the bass and when I think about it, I’m like : « I wanna do it again ». My sister plays the guitar and she’s very talented, I really want to make something with her, like mix my bass and her guitar in a techno track.
Worst thing ever happened during a gig and why?
Once, I was playing in a Club in Paris and during my set, the turntables suddenly couldn’t read my USB keys and most of my CDs, there were no MK2, I could see the left turntable starting to flash, I was panicking but fortunately two of my old CDs worked out but it totally screwed up my entire set, I had to manage with those two CDs till the end. It was really annoying.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
I know its stupid but I love being alone in my bed with my cat watching cooking tv shows!
