Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Recorded Live at The Black Lab. Exciting, fresh, spontaneous, energetic.

What’s your personal favorite track on it?
That would be a head to head battle between the 2 forthcoming Noir Music tracks by Thomas Schumacher and Victor Ruiz.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Its Noir “live”. What you hear is what you get. New techno tunes that inspires me, excites me, makes me move.

What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
I just came home from Mexico and US tour and my gig at Playa del Carmen still sits fresh in my mind. I Didn’t know what to expect after the tragedy at BPM (heard a lot of rumors and not so good vibes about the place) but the night was great and the crowd really up for it. So that was a pleasant surprise and I ended up playing an extended set that night.

What have you got coming up?
I am working on a couple of NOIR tracks at the moment. As for Noir Music we got the a release by Thomas Schumacher in June and one by Victor Ruiz in July. You can hear a track from both releases in this mix for Data Transmission.
