Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Some dancefloor fire to compliment my classical-electronic album ‘Leyenda’.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
It has to be Leyenda, I recorded Worbey & Farrell playing a Steinway B Grand Piano and made a music video, so it means a lot to me.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
A few of the tracks are written and produced by myself and there’s a cheeky one called ‘Telesto’ from my recent collaboration with Worbey & Farrell.
Tell us about your next Release?
Did I mention I had an album out? It’s called ‘Leyenda’ and it’s a classical-electronic hybrid, composed with two of the most talented composers I’ve ever worked with.
What have you got coming up?
I’ve just finished an EP for Toolroom with the legend that is Mark Knight and two of the tracks are collaborations between myself and Mark. This one’s special.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
