1. What are you working on at the moment?

Currently on working on some exciting new projects with my MiMo brand. We’ve got some massive secret warehouse parties coming up in East London, the line-ups for which are going to be massive! Plus we’ve just started a new residency @ The Roof Top Madinat in Dubai. The first event was rammed, so we’re looking to expand on that as the year goes on.

2. Where do you see dance music going in 2010?

For me the music have gone back to it’s original house routes. Its Underground! It’s a much slower BPM over the last year with little bits of vocal coming back in and that’s where I see it continuing down the line.

3. What makes a good DJ?

It’s just the ability to know what the crowd are wanting, and really being able to make the dance floor groove just through the records you play and the vibe you create.

4. What’s your favourite bit of kit, and how does it sit in your overall set-up?

I’m not really a “kit” man, my CDJ’s, my mixer and my ears do all the work!

5. Tune of 2009/Most influential artist of 2009?

I’m really feeling Nima Gorji and Alex Niggamann’s music at the moment!

6. What can we expect from you in the future?

Really going for some exciting underground house productions this year, concentrating on the sort of sound I play and making sure the records I make always rock my dancefloor.

7. How did you get into DJing?

Always loved it, from as far back as I can remember and it just always felt the way for me to go. Which is why I also got into promotion, as it’s something I’m good at and I really enjoy, so why not make it my life.

8. Favourite gig you have ever played?

In the summer of 2007 I had 2 headline sets in The Coco Loco room at Privilege Ibiza. Such an amazing room to play, especially when it’s rammed!
