What difference is there between the new remix and the original song?

I think the remix is a real dance floor banger through the risen tempo and the very extroverted production. I really love it!

Remixes are a great way to stir the creative juices. What are you most excited about in ‘Dance or We Are Lost (Semodi Remix)’?

I am very excited to get to work with Semodi. He is a brilliant producer and a great person as well and I think the exchange will create a future connection, which I totally love.

What inspires you?

Life in general and the people I meet; the stories they tell and that I experience.

At what point in your life did you have that moment where you said to yourself “This is it. This is the type of music I want to create?”

Finding myself on the dancefloor of Panorma Bar. After a deep dive into jazz vocals I said, I want to combine everything. I learned that too.

Most underrated piece of equipment / software?

A Lax Vox – (for vocals).

Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, what do you prefer?

I love both – one is introverted, the other extroverted. I am both. Sometimes it’s challenging to get the role at the time.

What’s the weirdest or most amazing reaction you’ve had to your music?

People screaming, being totally filled up with energy and hope after my gig and wanting to take so many pictures on my Brazil tour.

Where is dance music going?

It’s going in a million different directions, and I love that. I think it’s important not wanting to serve, but speak the very personal truth.

All-time favourite album?

Matthew Herbert – Bodily Functions.

What have you got in the pipeline for the near future?

My album and a lot of great remixes.
