Every young producer dreams of scoring a respected crossover hit like Something Special. Did you write the track for someone special wonderful and why was the track was not the A1 and title track of the release?

The song was born out of one of those moments when someone catches your eye and your begin to wonder about what could be. My first really popular tune was Baby I Got It and this was always planned to be my first release with Hot Creations. Something Special was a track that we decided to pair up on the first release and use on the b side. Even though I knew this track had become very popular I was happy to run with the plans unchanged and that’s what we did. Over the years, I have often found that my fave tracks were the tracks on the b side and I’m happy that my first b side did so well!

Since your career has taken on a global presence, with US, Australia and South America tours, a mega hit, about 5 LP’s and residencies around the world, is there a place you look forward to come back to play?

I think the place I most look forward to returning to in Europe is Paris. My favourite place to play is Zig-Zag club however, Paris as a city, is a place I always enjoy returning to. I have a great crew of friends and a good team of people looking after me in Paris and I always fully enjoy the experience there.

Has there been a moment that you think back of like: If I didn’t take that decision at that time or I wasn’t at that place at that time, something important did not happen to you?

Yes. In its simplest form, if I didn’t post a track one random Sunday afternoon, Richy would have never asked me to send him it and my music would not have been played that year in Miami!

Any new artist you are crazy about and surprised that he or she is not know yet?

Iain O’hare is an artsist on my label who has now began touring with us. He has a sound which is very similar to Matt Hughes and myself and his sound compliments our label very well so I am very excited to see him flow this year.

As 2015 just begun, what was your most special moment of 2014 and what are you looking forward to in the coming year?

My time in Ibiza last year was amazing and I think my main highlight of the year was playing the Outcross Boat Parties with the crew. I also very much enjoyed my tour of Australia last time around and so I’m definitely looking forward to that again this year. I have lots of new music coming out in 2015 and I’m really excited to share these sounds with everyone!

Here is a mini mix of some themes from my next album – Night Games.

We look forward to see you the 10th at Blockparty!

I will see you there!

About The Author

New York ’78 – It’s Saturday night and there’s a full moon. Blood is crawling in hidden places. On New York’s West 54th Street stands an endless row of fans who are dying to get into Studio 54 and become part of the inside crowd. Studio 54 is the only thing that really matters to these loyal followers. In the infamous VIP-room of the club owned by Steve Rubell events take place that never see daylight. But some things are just irreversible. There are rumours that Freddie Mercury and Blondie (Debbie Harry) found each other in the middle of the night, while being in ecstasy. During this night something that is rather unthought of happened. Freddie Mercury, who is gay, makes love to Blondie in a shadow corner of the VIP room, and makes her pregnant. Blondie decides to keep the baby, while being at the height of her career. Between her two most successful albums ‘Paralellel Lines’ and ‘Eat to the Beat’, Blondie is off the radar for five months - ‘sick’, and does not accept any performances. Nightlife people say that she gave birth to a boy, who was brought forth amid all the buzz of the nightlife, and has music flowing through every cell in his body.
