You’re in music production from over 15 years, creating a lot of labels
(Five20East, L.E.S.S. etc...), projects and releases for others labels (DFA, Poker
Flat, Domino etc...) and moving in different sounds in the electronic/dance
world. So it’s very hard to make order in your career...
Please make for us a brief “emotional” history, selecting your personal
highlights and/or key moments, of your musical adventure, from your first steps
I started making music about 14 years old, beginning with rave / hardcore music, then into
techno, hip-hop, experimental, jungle, house etc. I love lots of types of music and I think
a lot of elements of many kinds of music filter into my sound today. Key moments in my
production history would probably be records like Deportivo Street Team “How Can I Get
Thru To You?”, The Hong Kong Micros “Love’s Gonna Get Us”, Harri & The Revenge
“Space Doubt”, The Revenge “Cadillac” rework, 6th Borough Project “Do It To The Max”.
All of these productions were important stages in developing my sound.
You’re very connected with Glasgow, the city that you’ve chosen years ago like
“headquarter”, and with its musical scene. Explain us the reasons of this decision
(why not London for example, etc...) and suggest us some new talented artist from
this area. And which are your favourite musicians, djs or bands from Glasgow, not
only in electronic scene, I mean.
The nightlife in Glasgow and the record labels I was listening to at the time (Soma, Glasgow
Underground etc) attracted me to the city. Also I went to college there for 1 year after
studying sound engineering in Perth, Scotland. There’s lots of DJ / production talent in
Glasgow - people like Harri & Domenic, Optimo, AliOOFT, Esa, Sensu, Mash, Jackmaster,
Hudson Mohawke, Boom Monk Ben …
I don’t go and see bands very often, but there’s a very strong indie music scene here too.
What about your dj-sets? You have a lot of experience in this “field” too...
Which is the first rule to be an interesting and estimated “night entertainer”
year after year?
You have to work with the audience to create a vibe for the night. It’s important to enjoy the
process of playing the music and try and connect in someway to the people on the dancefloor.
These are the most important things I think.
As we have already said, you have changed several monikers during your career
for your different projects like Deportivo Street Team, OOFT Music or Cronk
Which are you more “attached”? Which you would have hoped a better relevance
from audience and/or critics instead? At last tell us about the “genesis” of The
Revenge project, starting from the story behind the moniker...
I have no ‘one’ special project, they are all special to me in someway. The musical direction
of each is slightly different, but it is all somehow connected to me. The Revenge moniker is a
secret … my lips are sealed.
Tell us more about your fortcoming releases, scheduled for the next months, like
the two albums for Delusions Of Grandeur and Z Records...
The Z Records album is an album of unreleased edits which I worked on last year for the
label. It contains some slightly more obscure tracks that I thought would be interesting
to rework. The album for Delusions Of Grandeur is under my 6th Borough Project
alias with Craig Smith. It’s a more sample-based House album I guess. It’s tracks we
have worked on over the last 10 years since we hooked up. I’m looking forward to finally
releasing both of them.
Tell us your top 5 listenings at the moment, the music of your days and nights in
this spring of 2011...
