When did you begin your dj career? What was your first vinyl? Who discovered you?

I STARTED PLAYING HIPHOP IN THE LATE 80’S THEN MOVED INTO JUNGLE AND DRUM & BASS IN THE EARLY 90’S. MY FIRST VINYL WAS THE FLASHDANCE ALBUM! HAHAHA….

Please tell us about the „Funky Room” and the music played by Matt Caseli.

THE FUNKY ROOM IS A LENGENDARY ROOM AT THE TOP OF PACHA AND HAS AN INCREDIBLE VIBE TO IT. WE PLAY FROM SOULFUL HOUSE TO LATIN HOUSE AND SOME REAL FUNK AND DISCO SHIT!

Soulful house music is really unknown in Hungary, you’ve been to a lot of countries, please tell me about this situation in the world.

THE PROBLEM WITH SOULFUL HOUSE IS IT’S MORE FOR THE OLDER CROWD. THE KIDS ARE NOT INTO IT SO MUCH, THEY LIKE TRANCE OR HARDER STUFF. BUT WHEN THEY GROW OUT OF THAT RUBBISH THEY WILL DISCOVER REAL HOUSE MUSIC!!! BUT THERE’S MANY COOL CLUBS AROUND THE WORLD PLAYING GOOD HOUSE. FROM CIELO IN NEW YORK TO DEEP LA. AND TOO MANY MORE TO MENTION, YOU ONLY HAVE TO LOOK AND YOU WILL FIND!!

You were born in England/UK but you live in Zürich now, why did you move there? Switzerland is a small country but a lot of producers live there (M.o.D, Roberto De Carlo, C & M Productions, Jamie Lewis) do you know them personally? Have you ever worked with them?

I MOVED TO SWITZERLAND TO DO A RESIDENCY AT ONE OF THE BEST CLUBS IN ZURICH CALLED CLUB.Q. WHERE WE CREATED A PRIVE’ ROOM SIMILAR TO THE FUNKY ROOM FROM PACHA. THAT KICKED ASS FOR SOME YEARS BUT EVERYBODY MOVES ON AND NOW I PLAY ONLY AS A GUEST THERE. AND YES I KNOW THEM SWISS PRODUCERS WELL. STAFF FROM MOD HAS JUST DONE A REMIX OF MY NEW SINGLE ON SOULFURIC CALLED ME SORPRENDISTE.

Every young dj is dreaming about being a resident in a trendy club, how did you manage to play in Ibiza?

I WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME AND I PLAYED WELL !!!! NOW THESE DAYS IT’S VERY VERY HARD TO BREAK IBIZA OR GET INTO A BIG CLUB. TOOO MANY DJ’S AROUND AND THE COMPETITION IS STRONG!!! I WAS LUCKY I WENT TO IBIZA 10 YEARS AGO CAUSE IT WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT TO GET IN THERE NOW. ESPECIALLY A RESIDENCY AT PACHA!!!!!

Don’t you think that Ibiza has lost it’s exclusivity? What’s your opinion about the South African Music Conference or places like Aya Napa?

IBIZA HAS NEVER BEED SO EXCLUSIVE!!!! IT’S MORE EXCLUSIVE THAN EVER NOW WITH THE BIG SECRET VILLA AND BEACH PARTIES. THERE’S ONLY ONE IBIZA AND IT’S SO SPECIAL THAT NO WHERE IS GONNA BEAT IT!!!! THE PEOPLE LOVE THE PLACE AND COME EVERY YEAR, AND MORE PEOPLE FROM MANY FAR AWAY COUNTRIES ARE HITTING NOW THE ISLAND. I HAD A MASSIVE GROUP THIS SUMMER COME OVER FROM MANILA IN THE PHILIPPINES. NOW THE WORD HAS SPREAD THERE AND MORE WILL COME!!!!! AS FOR AYA NAPA, THAT WAS OVER 3 YEARS AGO!!!!! SOUTH AFRICA IS COMING UP, NICE TO SEE A PLACE LIKE THAT DOING SOMETHING.

How did you get in touch with Soulfuric Records? Are you planning for a long term?

I KNOW BRIAN TAPPERT AND ALWAYS LOVED HIS LABEL FROM THE BEGINNING WHEN HE HAD OUT TRAX LIKE LOVE DON’T LIVE FROM MICHAEL PROCTOR! ALWAYS WANTED TO BE AN ARTIST ON THAT LABEL AND WORKED MY ASS OFF TO GET ON IT. NOW I’M ON MY SECOND SINGLE WITH THEM AND GOING TO PLAY THEIR PARTY IN MIAMI FOR WMC!!!!

I read that you played in almost all the good clubs, please tell me about Tabu Ultra Lounge – Las Vegas, Ruby Skye – San Francisco Which one do you prefer of these clubs?

LAS VEGAS WAS ROCKING, THEY LIKE HOUSE THERE AT TABU WHICH IS UNDER THE MGM GRAND HOTEL. RUBY SKYE IS SAN FRAN’S BEST CLUB, AND WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE GIGS!!! SAN FRAN HAS A GREAT HOUSE SCENE SO RUBY SKYE WAS FAR BETTER THAN TABU!!!

Which was the best party you’ve ever played at? I heard that Kee Club is amazing, isn’t it?

WOW THAT’S A HARD QUETION CAUSE I’VE HAD MANY COOL GIGS, BUT YEA KEE CLUB IS A GREAT SMALL CLUB IN HONG KONG WHICH I LOVE TO PLAY. IT’S LIKE A CHINESSE FUNKY ROOM!!!! THE MINISRY IN MOSCOW WAS ALSO VERY MEMEORABLE AND THERE’S A SMALL CLUB IN MIAMI I LOVE CALLED BLUE!

What do you use in your dj sets: cd, vinyl, ableton live or final sratch?

I USE NOW ONLY CD’S, DONT LIKE THESE LAPTOP STYLE DJ SET UPS. YOU ONLY SEE THE DJ LOOKING IN THE LAPTOP ALL NIGHT AND WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE ON THE DANCEFLOOR????? THEY ARE THE IMPORTANT ONES, SO I LIKE TO USE THE PIONEER CDJ1000’S, IT’S MORE OR LESS STILL LIKE PLAYING WITH VINYL!! AND YOU CAN KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE DANCEFLOOR BETTER!!!

Is there anyone you’ve never got the chance to play with but you’d love to?

I WOULD LOVE TO PLAY WITH BRIAN TAPPERT MAYBE ONE TIME. I’VE PLAYED WITH MOST OF THE BIG BOYS IN PACHA, FROM GRANT NELSON TO MIGUEL MIGS ETC ETC…..

Do you like live percussions during a party? Do you play any instrument?

YEA WE HAVE ALOT OF LIVE PERFORERS WITH US IN PACHA. I LIKE BONGO PLAYERS AND SOMETIMES A SAX PLAYER, AS LONG AS HE DOESN’T BLOW THE THING ALL THE WAY THROUGH MY DJ SET!!! LOL!! A GOOD PLAYER KNOWS WHEN TO COME IN AND OUT AND GO IN WITH THE DJ!!! HAD SOME GUITARISTS ALSO JAM WITH ME, SO YEA I LIKE A LIVE ELEMENT.

Have you ever worked with a famous vocalist? Who were them? What’s your opinion, was it better with the vocalist?

I USE TO PRODUCE BADY.D FOR POLYGRAM RECORDS, SHE’S A VERY GOOD VOCALIST AND HAD A NUMBER 1 AND 2 MORE TOP 10 HITS. I WROTE SOME TRAX FOR HER ALBUM, SHE’S ACTUALLY QUITE SLOW TO WORK WITH BUT THE END RESULT IS VERY GOOD! SHE HAS A GREAT VOICE THAT YOU EASILY RECONISE. I MEAN EVERYBODY KNOWS LET ME BE YOUR FANTASY!!!

What’ll happens with the Silo Casa Records? Sebastian told, that you’ll do together the Realbasic Records, they’ll be the producers and you’ll populize it? Is it true?

YES I AM NOW PARTNER IN REAL BASIC HANDLING THE A&R, BUT I WILL KEEP SILOCASA GOING DIGITALLY ONLY.

Did it ever happen, that you couldn’t check in, because the ticket was booked for Matt Caseli?

YES ONCE ONE IDIOT BOOKED THE FLIGHT IN MATT CASEL AND I COULDN’T BOARD THE PLANE!! I WAS PULLING RECORDS AND CD’S FROM MY BAG SAYING I REALLY AM MATT CASELI, LOOK AT THIS RECORD!! BUT WHEN IT’S WRONG ON THE FLIGHT TICKET THEN THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO. YOU HAVE TO BUY A NEW TICKET, SO IT COST THE CLUB ANOTHER 600 EUROS!!!

What’s is the most important thing in your life?

MUSIC, VERY EASY QUESTION TO ANSWER!

Have you ever been in Hungary? Do you know something about it?

NO I WAS NEVER THERE BUT THEY TELL ME IT’S THE PARIS OF THE EAST, SO I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!!!!

What kind of alcohol do you prefer? Do you like wine?

HAHAHAHAHA YEA I LIKE SOME WINE BUT I DRINK VODKA LEMONS!!!! OH AND OF COURSE CHAMPAGNE!!!!
