How did you get into the
French underground scene? You released your first singles at a very young age.
90s the techno scene in Dijon was quite big. I got into techno when I was 16
and after a while I felt like I really wanted to compose myself.
How does French house
differ from British house?
French house is really influenced by Daft Punk and the saturated basses.
You’ve traveled around the
world on tour. Which city has the greatest night life?
think Berlin, London and Barcelona have the best night life in Europe.
You will be playing a set
at the Playground Festival at the O2 Academy Brixton this summer. Are you
excited to be a part of an all night party?
am excited. The line up is really cool and I'm excited to play at that venue.
When you make a track,
where do you imagine your fans listening to it?
depends on the track. When I made Stamina I was thinking of summer festivals
with thousands of kids going mad.
In the past you’ve been
compared to Daft Punk. Would you ever want to do the soundtrack to a Hollywood
blockbuster? What sort of movie would it be?
a drama like Alan Parker used to make.
As an openly gay French man,
what are your views on equal marriage? Would you consider it? How do you feel
about the protests against that are being held in France?
think it’s a question of equal rights and that's normal. The protests just made
homophobia and silent fascism visible again.
What does the rest of 2013
hold for you?
