Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
It’s a deep tech house set with energy and groove.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Hard to say, every track here is a bomb. Maybe the first one because it’s crazy.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
My moves. When I did this podcast I was dancing so hard behind the decks that I think you can feel it when listening to it.
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
It was Regression Session at Ministry of Sound 2 weeks ago, with my friends Gene Farris from Chicago and Dennis Cruz from Madrid. I wish every gig could be like this one – they asked me to play 40 minutes more because people didn’t want to leave the club. The set will soon be published on my Soundcloud.
What have you got coming up?
I’m looking forward to Eden in Ibiza with Audio Rehab on August 2nd, September 13th and 27th, and Ceremony Festival in London on September 30th
