LM: It’s really nice to have you, so give my readers a little introduction!?
Thanks for having me! I’m 23 years old and am currently living in
Toronto. I started producing just over a year ago while I was doing an
internship in Bonn at Deutsche Welle and have been keeping up with it
since. You might remember me from my remix of The xx’s ‘Sunset’.
LM: Your hometown is Jena? So you’ve got German roots?
Yeah, I was born there when it was still East Germany and moved to a
small town in Ontario with my parents when I was six. The rest of my
family is still there and I always look forward to coming back.
LM: Try to describe your productions with 5 words.
Bold, impending, unrelenting, makeshift, charming.
LM: Please tell us something about your upcoming releases/remixes and
stuff…Maybe some secrets?
My next original release will be my Mossing/Wasabi EP on Crux Records,
still waiting on the final release date. That will include two remixes
of ‘Mossing’ by Count Clockwork and Made in Paris and a free remix by
Dr. Bread of ‘Wasabi’.
I also have a remix for PTN coming out on Macro Records soon, as well
as remix for Jean e La Plastique on Trashz Records.
LM: Let’s end up with some simple questions, the track you start your sets?
Right now I’d say I start most with On Further Inspection by JoeFarr.
LM: The track you can listen to every day?
Right now: I’ve Been Waiting by Nightbreaker.
All time: Aaron by Paul Kalkbrenner
or Jeffer by Boys Noize.
LM: Which track you’re forced to play in a club at the peak time?
Surreal Sound’s remix of Alko’s ‘Zelfen’.
LM: Thanks for the mix and if you want to say something to the
internet, now you’ll have the chance
I guess this would be a good place to share my remix of Boys Noize’s
‘What You Want’ for the Beatport Play contest. Voting starts today
& thanks for the continued support.
