The last track of the night?
Wow, that could be any track, depends where I am playing. If it’s a very special night when you are totally in and with the crowd then I would always play something a bit special and something that maybe not everyone would know but they still feel the groove. One of my favorites is Cesaria Evora – ‘Angola (Carl Craig Remix)’. I’ve been playing this for a decade or so.
The soundtrack to a lazy Sunday afternoon?
Last week I bought the soundtrack from Silver Linings Playboook. It’s a great movie and I fell in love with the soundtrack. Especially to Stevie Wonder’s ‘My Cherie Amor’, but there are really too many to mention.
The record you’re proudest of?
I would say my last LP on Mobilee, Good Times. Had so much fun last year creating it. In 2012 I was living in Berlin again and somehow always get stranded there. But now I am back in Mannheim, my hometown. I particularly love the track ‘Hero’, which I made with Luis Anaya, my good Mexican friend who lives in Copenhagen.
