Hey Babert! How are you, what’s good and bad in your world?

Hi There! I’m fine! Not an easy question, the good thing is music and culture, the bad is the ignorance, the hypocrisy and the lack of attention we have these days.

How was the pandemic for you and what affect did it have on your music taste and style?
It has been two very hard years where there has been a real reset. Today is a new beginning

How do you evolved your own sound while staying true to your roots and own signature and not jumping on new hype bandwagons?

I think that roots are important, and that you cannot lie to the soul. It is important not to lie to oneself, and to externalize what we really are, we live in a world made only of appearance and fiction, with music you cannot lie.

Do you make music that suits certain labels or do you create first and worry about that later?

I like to create freely, and then look for the right label for that creation

What are some of the key bits of music making gear in your current set up?

In my home studio I can’t miss my mini moog and also my Maschine with which I enjoy creating new grooves every time

Where is your best environment as a dj? a small dark club or a huge outdoor festival stage? late at night for the weirdos or early so you can play slow and eclectic etc?

When I was a resident here at cocobreach I liked to play in the afternoon on the beach, and play to late at night. I was doing dj sets for 6 hours, but I also really like small night clubs! People attach to each other who transmit the vital energy thanks to a primordial thing, the dance.

How do you work, do you have an idea in your head you work towards or do you just experiment and jam and see what happens?

It depends, it can be one or the other, there are days where I start from scratch, days where I take samples and I start to work from that sample

Tell us about your gimme good love EP – what inspired or influenced it, where and when and who was it written for?

It’s a song dedicated to love, which I think is important in life. Nathalie perfectly understood the concept I was talking about and wrote some wonderful words.

Did you work with Nathalie remotely or in the studio? How did you meet?

Yes we work remotely, the Irish singer Rion S introduced us. He is an important friend for me!

What else have you got coming up/are you working on?

I’m preparing some nice things! Coming up is a collaboration with Mell Hell, an Australian DJ, which will be released soon, it will be a good record! This phase of recovery will also be a rebirth I hope!
