DJ Harvey Interview

  DJ Harvey – Interview – AllSaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints Spitalfields on Vimeo. Well here it is, perhaps the biggest interview I’ve posted on the blog so far. Me and the Basement Sessions boys got flown to LA to interview the man himself, ensconced at the Mondrian hotel, allowed to put EVERYTHING on the […]

James Lavelle Interview

Mo’ Wax Recordings releases were an essential part of my musical evolution. Plain and simple. I remember sitting in a warehouse at Taranaki St (in early 90’s Wellington, New Zealand) with a few fellow DJs and hearing for the first time DJ Shadow’s cinematic ‘Influx’ permeate the room like a sweet, dense opiate fog. It […]

Gary Numan Interview

There’s not a lot I need to say about this guy. Pioneering synth fanatic, androgynous 80’s industrial pop legend. His willingness to discuss his Aspergers was truly inspiring and will hopefully comfort the many sufferers of this disconnecting and debilitating affliction. Not only that, but I liked him, plain and simple.

Horse Meat Disco Interview

vimeo Direkt I recently interviewed Horse Meat Disco’s James Hillard for the AllSaints Basement Sessions; HMD is London’s premier full scale disco party. He’s a most agreeable fellow and it’s so good to see them progressing and doing so well; there’s compilations, global touring… HMD is almost an international nightlife brand. Good on those men. […]

Stefan Goldmann on Berlin & the music business

vimeo Direkt I recently went with AllSaints to Germany to record our first ever Basement Sessions in Berlin (including Aérea Negrot and Gold Panda) and it occurred to me if there was one person I unequivocally had to speak to it was Stefan Goldmann. Aside from being a well-known techno and house producer with releases […]

Jacques Renault Interview

vimeo Direkt If you’ve been busy buying house and the genre they call nu disco (an awful moniker and soon to be it’s death knell) recently then chances are you’ve encountered this talented chap along the way. Signed to DFA and Rekids as part of Runaway, proprietor of On The Prowl Records and remixer du […]

Digitalism Interview

vimeo Direkt Digitalism are a couple of Hamburgers (hamburglers?) that rose to fame around 2008; they arrived at that moment where indie, electro and a new raucous eclecticism (a la Erol Alkan) became fashionable and inadvertently reinvigorated dance music for a new generation. I recently conducted the above interview for the Basement Sessions , posted […]

Red Rack’em Basement Sessions Interview

vimeo Direkt It was only a matter of time before I dragged longtime Heads Down compadre and (rapidly) rising star Red Rack em down to the shady confines of the AllSaints Basement Sessions . Red Rack’em (real name Daniel Berman) has been tearing it up all over the globe of late; in the last week […]

Ivan Smagghe Interview

I’ve been rather fascinated by Ivan Smagghe since I heard his first co-mix for Kill The DJ at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007, whilst speeding along the waterfront to Nice in a convertible beamer at 3am with someone who SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN DRIVING (long story). Anyway, it struck me in my addled state […]

Warpaint Interview

It’s been a good while since I’ve had my head turned by a rock record, but I’m totally seduced by this stone-cold badboy: ‘The Fool‘ by Warpaint. The four-piece from oh-so-hot-right-now Silverlake are creators of druggy, woozily psychedelic records about longing, isolation and possessiveness (amongst other things). Andrew Weatherall‘s one of the producers behind the […]
