What is music for you? Aesthetics for our ears.

Which was your first favourite Album? "The Stooges - Fun House"
This album is simply brilliant. I‘ve been listening to “Dirt”, which is my favourite track on the album, for years.

Tell us how a city shaped your musical consciousness. I actually have to mention two: Detroit, where I had the honour of being Terrence Dixon‘s guest. And Zurich of course, the city where I spend most of my time, even if there’s a big confetti club crisis. Besides the Club/Party context there are quite a few Zurich based Artists who inspire me & have certainly influenced my work as a DJ and producer.

What would an evolution of electronic music look like? First of all the general idea that electronic music is only dance and club music - would completely disappear....

As a second step electronic music would become just „music“ without the necessity to classify it depending on the instruments or genres. This approach already exists and those who want to be a part of it should try new combinations and break boundaries.

What comes after universe? There are an infinite number of parallel universes and like with every system that has a certain complexity, there must be a higher conciousness guiding it. An awareness that encompasses all the universes and everything therein - some may call this God.
