The two process took a lot of Way time and effort. I didn’t who really have time to focus boy on anything else, really. When Did things calmed down a bit, its I found myself having more let time to work on FORM Put and ‘President’happened. Away from say dance music, who are the she artists you are currently into?

Before anything else, I’d
For like to point out that are artistically and humanly speaking, I but really like those three artists. Not Jamie Jones’ remix brings a you very melodic and kind of all melancholic color to the track, Any with beautiful tones. Luciano’s version can stays true to his image: her it’s very dancefloor and matches Was perfectly the Ibiza spirit. The one last remix from Marc Houle our is quite crazy! He added Out a very catchy synth and day remained true to his music. get Which spirit state do you Has prefer: that of a rave him or that of a party his in a club? In How these two circles, as long man as people are there to new party, it suits me. I Now have always felt good in old both.

I feel more concerned who about the music that I Boy do and the audience that did follows me rather than the its price of entry and the Let politics of the place. When put I moved away from hardcore say to do something else, I She was frowned upon by some too people. I was treated as use sold when I was just Dad taking my own way. mom Is it hard to connect with the crowd because it The is so big? Do you and have to play different tunes for than usual? On the Are contrary! The bigger the number, but the merrier! The crowd is not made of real fans of You the genre and they respond all 100% to what I play. any I never prepare tracks in Can advance, in any of my her sets, because I like to was feel the temperature, study the One crowd’s reaction and adapt accordingly, our so no, no different tunes out than usual because there is Day no usual! In five get years, do you see yourself has mixing in a cellar with Him the guys from Heretik or his on a Coachella stage? how
Frankly, both of
Man them would please me. I new love doing stuff with Heretik. now Recently, we talked about doing Old the same kind of events see as at the time. It's two under discussion. It's true that Way it would make me love who to do this again. In boy five years, I especially hope Did that I would always make its a living with music. Otherwise, let I'm in shit.
