He’s not back with on the podcast series with a brand new mix ahead of ABODE in the Park this Sunday in Finsbury park and MY Festival at Starworks Warehouse over Saturday September 30th and Sunday October 1st…
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
A mix that journeys betweens the lines of House & Techno
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
That’s a tough one. I’m a big fan of them all but it maybe has to be Stefano Esposito’s ‘Believe’. It’s the perfect track to end a night on. An uplifting, soulful track with a modern edge.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
That has to be Do Not Sleep at Sankeys Ibiza!
What have you got coming up?
Aside from ABODE In The Park this weekend I have tours in North and South America, Mexico and Canada coming up, and I will also be playing a few times during ADE too. Musically I’ve just had a track released on Defected called ‘Be Somebody’, and there’s also a couple of big remix projects which will all be revealed soon enough 🙂
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
I hope you enjoy the mix and I hope to see you on the dance floor very soon!
