Where in the world are you right now?

I’m at home in Portsmouth, getting my Christmas on!

Which track has been the highlight of your sets this year?

Round Table Knights ‘Calypso’ has always been fun to play.. maybe KiNK’s mix of ‘Muchness’ too.. my track with Pete Tong.

Where can we find you playing this New Years Eve?

I’m lucky enough to be with the Toolroom crew at both Ministry of Sound London, then Stanford Hall in Loughborough. I’ll also be in Manchester at Venus on New Years Day.

New Years Eve always gives a DJ the chance to drop some tracks they do not usually get the chance to play, what can we expect to hear from you at Toolroom Knights?

Well I’ll be digging through the crates.. oops I mean folders on my hard-drive, and playing some biggies from the last few years. I love playing classics so there’s going to be a few surprises I can promise!

What have you got planned for 2011 (gigs / album / releases)?

My album project has taken on a life of it’s own.. I’m so excited to get it out there but it won’t be as simple as just a Dave Spoon release. It’s really rewarding to do something different and I can’t wait to share it! Aside from that there’s some great new club stuff coming on Size & my label Televizion. I’ve signed new tracks from WAFA, Kyle Watson & Worthy to name just 3.. Exciting times.

What New Years resolution will you be making?

Many personal ones, it’s been a challenging year but aside from those.. I have to start riding my bike again. Hate the gym + love great food = gotta do something!

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
