Sit in a dark room with a static television on. bzzzzz

Favorite thing to cook? Recipe welcome : ) 

Moules Marinière – Garlic, White Wine and Parsley.

Fresh Mussels, a nice dry white, butter.. Bob’s ya uncle!

Favorite Ableton trick? 

My go-to is always the Waves Enigma modulated phaser – Makes percussion go wham.

Track to show aliens what life is like now?

Love this. Ehhhrrrr probably Sensational – Paper Chase or Mark Stewert & Maffia – Liberty City

Listen to the moment at 44 minute mark in your PI mix… describe how it makes you feel?

Hopeful. Excited. Like a warm come-up with friends.

Best gig of your life so far?

MmMmmmm.. We Out Here festival ‘22 was pretty epic. 

Track you used to listen to as a teen that still hits?

Where do you see yourself musically in 2036?

Somewhere in Italy, a small plot of land by the coast. A fluffy cow, chooks and a puppy named Hénry. Making music that matches the pace of life.

Most ridiculous request while DJing?

To charge someone’s vape in the CDJ lol

If you could have anything on your DJ rider… What would you choose?

San Pellegrino Sparkling [Glass Bottle]

Favorite mix in recent memory?

Favorite club in your city and why?

Ormside Projects. No frills, calm energy, great programming.

Who was the first person in your life that you admired musically?

Great question! Probably my grade 3 trumpet teacher. He was a cool cat, liked jazz and showed me a new world 🙂

Hottest take about the current music scene?

You don’t need my opinions on this lol. Support each other and get down on good music is all.

Let’s play a pi pi pi game… I give you a situation & you give me a track…

Green room, green carpet, green fog at 5pm

Escalator to the clouds with your best friend

Wet jungle with tons of frogs

What is your favorite party/collective where you reside and why?

Watersign by a country mile. It’s the only party keeping it real imo. Hot bookings, always a sexy vibe inside. Lineup is secret until the day of. A must-attend if you’re in town <3

What movie would you pick to do the score for?

Can I choose Surfs Up?

If you could transfer all your knowledge from what you do now into something completely different, what would it be and why?

Print making 🙂

It’s a beautiful artform with so many possibilities. I would love to dive deeper.

Track that makes you think about being in water…

I have a playlist for this! I think I’ll go with LTD Colours – Messy Objects, from their Patterns EP.

What beverage would you pick to describe the way you DJ?

San Pellegrino Limonata :p

Favorite flavor and why?

Rice Pudding. Pure nostalgia and so so so comforting.

What would you like to see in the future for the dance community?

I think a more unionised approach to the scene would be nice. Solidarity and mutual aid – in regard to uplifting and platforming our peers.
