Yeah, you do seem to find a lot of techy, minimal psytrance for your DJ sets. There’s not a lot of that around. Where do you find all those killer tunes?
www.KillerTechyFreePsyTunes.com ..Kidding…. Being a part of the producer circle has the benefit of access to unreleased music. It’s through sharing with other producers that l have come across certain tech-psy gems. Often the producer hasn’t found the right label for the tune or simply isn’t comfortable releasing it yet, so it can remain hidden in limbo i.e. my CD wallet, heh heh.
How much have you enjoyed the travelling overseas? Are you bored yet?
It’s been a real blessing and has made me a far more rounded person. Although l’ve had times where l hated individual trips, l wouldn’t trade it for anything. Definitely not bored.
I believe you’re going to spend most of our winter enjoying the European summer. Tell us a bit about the gigs you’re booked for…
So far I have closed Glade (U.K.) , Solstice (Holland), Blissful Festival (Portugal), Colour of Forest (Switzerland), Sonica (Montenegro), Aqua Veda Festival (France), Aurora Festival (Greece) and a couple more are still in negotiation.
So life’s good then?
Well it’s a rollercoaster but l’m loving the ride.
One more trance related question… last month our Little Misfit columnist wrote an opinion piece on the CT trance scene. Do you think she was spot on, or a little unkind to the board short boys from the ‘burbs?
On the whole she’s on the money but maybe a tad harsh to the boardie boys. l think all of us who’ve been in the scene for a long time will feel somewhat alienated by certain stirrings created by the younger blood but this exaggerates our assessment of the state of our scene. The youthful troops are the strongest supporters and energy bringers so it’s wise to accept them all and help them settle down into a calmer more respectful party existence.
And finally…. Beef or chicken?
Bacon & eggs or lentil & tofu?
Bacon & eggs.
What’s ALWAYS in your fridge?
Lindt 70% Dark Chocolate
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
Hit the snooze button
And the last thing before bed?
If you did not live in Cape Town, which city can you see yourself living in?
