Warm Up Weapon: ABILITY II - Pressure Dub

Why: It wakes up my senses.

-------------------------------------------

Peak Time: Truth - Jade Helm

Why: Its intensity and drops are dancefloor killers.

-------------------------------------------

One Last Tune: Orphx - Cut Through

Why: Easy… I don’t think a track like this could be even legal :)

-------------------------------------------

After-Party: Dan White - Precognitive Dreams

Why: This is the perfect after-party track. It takes you out of this world.

-------------------------------------------

Wild Card: Pinch - Fighting Talk

Why: This one needs to be supported by a great sound system - it works out really well. Breaking times and huge bass punching your stomach... the perfect combo.

Next Morning: The Pilotwings - Just Be (Ushuaia Mix)

Why: I've played it many many times the morning after a party, without a special reason. The music speaks for itself.

Tell us about Danza Tribale. What made you want to start your own label? We love the breadth of the releases, from Marcel Dettmann to Donato Dozzy...

Starting a label was very challenging. I never thought I’d reach this point. It all started with the idea to be free when making music - I wanted to make music without any boundaries. Dedication and time were essential to the launch of the label. I'm lucky to be able to work with such amazing artists and people.

How did your residency at Goa Ultrabeat come about? And do you feel it's helped prepare you for international performances? It’s one of Italy’s most established nightclubs, so it must have been very rewarding to become a resident there…

Goa Club means everything to me. There is no other place I’d see myself, I learned all I could from one of the best clubs in the world. It's where I found my true inspiration for music, ever since I was 18 years old. I used to work at the club and I loved to be surrounded by my friends and music. There's a special kind of power that exists inside the club.

I started spinning records later on. It became quite natural for me to approach music and give the best that I could because one day I knew I was going to reach that booth. I played there for the first time and my life changed - now I see it as everything was really meant to be.

We’ve seen you’re a keen vinyl enthusiast. Do you approach your sets differently depending on whether you’ll be using vinyl or digital?

I only play vinyl (when I can). I learned to discover myself through vinyl, so it's the only way for me to approach my sets, even though it can be challenging sometimes to get used to a booth that you've never touched before. It took a while for me to feel secure behind the decks - I needed a lot of experience.

I only play digital when it's hard for me to play vinyl because of potential technical problems or because I want to try out some new productions. I always try to approach my sets in different ways depending on how I want "the night" to be interpreted - whether I do that with vinyl or digital makes no difference. It just depends on how deep the connection gets.
