I personally love electronic music specifically because it has the rhythm, the kick, the thump – it has energy.
The first record I heard as a kid? My dad is a great soul and blues fan, so he showed me James Brown. That was my first stuff, and I loved it.
I did psychology at university, but I wouldn’t say that my music is too influenced by it. The way I make music is a little more to do with an emotional connection. When I compose the melodies for my tracks, it always comes from the heart.
If someone wants to make very, very original music that no one has ever heard before, you shouldn’t know anything about music. It just narrows you down, you know?
To play vinyl onstage is not my thing. For me, vinyl is for home listening.
