Tricky Interview

From his early days riding with the hugely influential Bristolian Wild Bunch (the foundation of Massive Attack) to featuring in The Fifth Element movie, no one can accuse Tricky (aka Adrian Thaws) of being a couch potato. This my interview with him for Creative Britain, a culture programme curated by AllSaints Basement Sessions and GQ. […]

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. […]

Aérea Negrot Interview

vimeo Direkt As most of you regular readers of Heads Down know, I present a music directive called Basement Sessions.

Digitalism Interview

I recently conducted the above interview for the Basement Sessions , posted […]

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 […]

Idjut Boys Interview

I interviewed the Idjuts for the first time a year or so ago, and it was great fun. Unfortunately it was on a very lo-res format and it’s like watching an interview with two cartoon bubble men made out of Tetris blocks (or something). Anyway, My work with the AllSaints Basement Sessions has luckily allowed […]

All Saints Basement Session: Zane Lowe (Pt 2)

Due to the surprising (read astonishing) number of you who showed interest and appreciation for part one of my interview with Zane, here’s part two. I have to say I’m quite astonished by the reception… I was expecting a barrage of vile comments and ticking mail; I guess there’s still time though. vimeo Direkt

I’m going to post my […]
