Rundell doesn’t follow trends, adhering to his own beliefs and interests both on and off the dancefloor.

What’s your personal favourite track on it?
The Fitzpatrick remix of Skream’s ‘Poison’. The original is just a mental distinctive track, something I feel that’s been lacking generally in what I’ve been hearing all year, and this remix sent it over the edge, so it just jumped out at me as something really fresh.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Flow and rhythm, it all stitches together, if that makes sense.
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
I played at a great event in Rosario at a venue called Metropolitan. Everything just clicked that night.
What have you got coming up?
A lot of overdue studio time
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
