1. What’s the first thing you do for inspiration when you get into the studio?
I usually spend most of my spare time soaking up inspiration, whether it’s being in clubs at the weekend, record stores, or listening to mixes. When I get into the studio, I’ll normally have an idea in my head where where I want to go (although it invariably ends up in another direction). So I’ll get a strong kick and some drums going, and just vibe from there.

2. Favorite or newest piece of hardware/software in your studio?
I’ve actually just started buying hardware and incorporating it into the studio. I picked up a second-hand Roland Groovbox 303 recently. It’s taken a bit of time to learn how to control it, but there’s quite an extensive sound bank in there, and it’s nice to be more hands-on, rather than having the ‘point and click’ approach to production.

3. One synthesizer you wish you owned?
Without a doubt, a Roland TB-303.

4. Your go-to DAW?
Ableton. I’ve spent a fair amount of time with Cubase/Logic, but feel most comfortable with Ableton.

5. Newest audio technology you’ve heard of?
Just a couple of days ago, I saw that Ambivalent had posted a kickstarter link for the ‘Cerberus 500 series’, which looks really interesting

6. Your favorite website?
I know a lot of people often whine about it, but Soundcloud is essential for what I do – in terms of both sharing new music, and also for searching out new music and producers.
