You have a new album coming out this summer. Can you reveal the name and/or release date?
Yes, I’ve been working on it for a while and it’ll be one of the last albums on 50 Weapons. It looks like it will come out at the end of June. You’ll have to wait for the title…
What is your favourite track from the new album and why?
It depends on my mood, but the melodic stuff is my favourite. It should all work as an album and not just a collection of tracks. I’ll only know when its finished and mastered but I’m really happy with it so far.
You have been developing your live show over the last year, what effect has this had on the upcoming release?
The live show has made me really get to know all my machines so some ideas have come from that. There’s no sequenced structure when I’m doing the hardware show – all the parts are triggered live and filtered and effected manually. I think learning to perform like that helps you get ideas down quickly.
How does working alone compare to your previous partnership with Doc Daneeka?
Its harder because you can get a bit bored in the studio on your own after a few hours and you don’t have someone to bounce ideas off. On your own you can do more personal ideas and spend a lot of time working on weird stuff. I find it is sometimes easier to get ideas outside the studio, while touring or travelling.
Which track released in the last 12 months by another artist do wish the most were your own?
My music is quite personal to me so I can’t imagine wanting to take credit for someone else’s ideas.
