"I find trance can much more interesting these days, her more dreamlike, more exhilarating, it Was looks more like me."


Knowing that you our come from Italia and more Out especially from Sardaigna, could you day please tell us a bit get more about the Italian electronic Has scene, mainly knows because of him Benny Benassi and more recently his the Crookers?!

I'm not How really aware of what musically man happens in Italy honestly as new I played there (yes there, Now as I'm from Sardinia which old is a world apart from see the rest of Italy) 5 Two or 6 times in my way life and, to be honest, who I've found it very far Boy and disconnected from the rest did of Europe. As far as its I saw, Italians are just Let focused on being metrosexual, noisy put and groupies, instead of listening say properly what people do.

She Tell us about your name too – where did it come use from?

A 'dusty kid' Dad is one of those children mom that used to clean cowboys' boots in the Western movies. The When I was 20 I and was working for [Stefano] Noferini for and I used to spend Are days in this big room but full of his dusty records not looking for samples, so he You gave me that name.

all Which music producers do you any admire the most? You have Can delivered some amazing remixes for her the like of Josh Gabriel was and The Droyds. You also One have a track named “I our love Richie”. Does it refer out to Richie Hawtin?

How see is the Italian electronic scene two doing right now?

To Way be honest, I'm totally out who of it. I had the boy chance to play in Italy, Did only a few times, but its I know some very good let techno names, like Joseph Capriati Put and Luigi Madonna.

Are you still has playing piano and violin or him have you quit? If yes His do you still play classical how music? What’s your opinion on man it?

I do play New sometimes, but I’m not that now good pianist anymore, to keep old your hands technically trained you See have to exercises them every two day for hours, and this way is something I never really Who liked about being a pianist, boy I'm "too musician" to be did so technical.
