Tensnake Interview

vimeo Direkt Tensnake (aka Marco Niemerski) is a German producer and DJ who, let’s face it, has had a rather power-packed sixteen months. His single ‘Coma Cat’ was a smash with everyone from Optimo to the likes of Radio 1’s Annie Mac. I have to admit it never did much for me as I thought […]

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.

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. […]

Jose James On The Moodymann remix of ‘Desire’

vimeo Direkt Jose James is an intimidatingly cool cat. I’d like to see someone give him a fright, just so I could see a fracture in that seamless wall of cool. Even more intimidating (in it’s own strange way) is the fact that he’s disarmingly charming, earnest and… Talented (the most offensive of all). I […]

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. […]

Kris Needs Interview (Part One)

vimeo Direkt Kris Needs is a bit of a legend. OK, he’s a lot of a legend. From his almost supernatural ability to find himself at the point of so many cultural lightening strikes over the years (from NYC disco and post punk to Acid House), Kris has found himself producing dance music as Secret […]

Lexx Interview

vimeo Direkt Swiss DJ and producer Alex Storrer aka Lexx is one of the most respected members of the modern disco house firmament. He manages to achieve this without being particularly prolific, but by being high on the quality control and by being very selective as to where he releases his music; Permanent Vacation, Drumpoet […]

Jacques Renault Interview

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 […]
