What was the first record you bought?

Pablo Honey by Radiohead

Where in the world would you like to play that you have not already?

Due to the type of music we play, definitely Germany! There’s such an amazing electronic scene out there and we love the poetic lyrical style of contemporary German indie.

Who was the first band/artist you ever saw perform live?

Nine Black Alps at Middlesbrough Music Live.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

A room full of instruments, free recording and unlimited time.

Who are your favourite writers?

William Gibson, Philip K Dick, Aldous Huxley.

Who are your favourite painters?

Miró and Goya.

If you could collaborate with any other artists, living or dead, who would you choose?

Anthony Gonzalez from M83.

What are you listening to at the moment?

Oh! We have a playlist for that! Listen to our guest playlist here

Where’s your favourite place to go on holiday?

Alamillo in Castilla La Mancha, Spain. 3 streets, 3 bars, 40 degrees and probably the same amount of people.

Best advice you can give to emerging talent?

Be brave. Be nice. All the time.
