What advice would you give to aspiring DJs & producers?
Be brave. Mostly: be creative and real. Produce things that work in your set, but do something different, this is what I personally find exciting. A surprise and unique element. DJing means freedom to me, not so much genre barriers and clichés. Once you stand for a certain sound and you are popular for a very particular type of music, you may reconsider and ask for further advice. But in fact I never stopped learning and experimenting, so also I take advice from others all the time.
What do you have coming up over the next few months? (gigs, releases etc)
Now after ‘Nuts’ on Mother Recordings and my hiphop-house-hybrid ‘With Nuts’ featuring the legendary NYC rap crew The Beatnuts, there is a remix coming. Milk & Sugar celebrate their classic house hit ‘Higher and Higher’ with a Robosonic version, which was actually the first transatlantic production Sacha and me managed to finish together between LA and Berlin. Crew Love will release remixes for Soul Clap’s ‘Timespent’. In both a Robosonic Dub and a Cord Labuhn version…
There is a video of ‘Drowning’ feat. Son Little on Get Physical, which will come as a whole remix EP with a wonderful set of new interpretations…
Sacha has a dope remix on Nervous coming and is touring the US. And besides all that I’m excited to release a mixtape with only sleep music (‘Sleep Out’), and a series of hiphop-inspired stoner beats, a few rap tunes and some more ‘Outtakes’…
Where can people find out more about you and your music?
