XLII Interview On Soundrope


I’ve done an interview with Soundrope about my “Like Dew In The Sun” EP. Japanese only, but if you speak the language, I recommend you read it. In line with the concept of the release, large part of the interview isn’t so much about music, but about humanity at large. I’ve also introduced some interesting Ukrainian music, so be sure to check it out.

Super Late post, but I was featured on last month’s Groove Magazine PCDJ special with advices for DJs just starting out on a PC. Some useful (IMO) tips on how to keep your gear organised, how to backup your data and some useful stuff to have in your gig bag.
 Alas, it’s all in Japanese. Still, if you read Japanese, check it out. Should be in all good bookshops / bigger convenience stores etc.

Ukrainian-born Tokyo denizen XLII has been making waves with his sound, a glittering combination of crunk, synthwave, bass and funked-up beat stylings. With releases on Civil Music, Raid System and Fubar under his belt, and forthcoming productions on Ninja tune, XLII is coming to London to make you put your hands up and get down to his romantic vibes.

Ahead of his appearance at Tempo Clash alongside Drums of Death, Darling Farah, Jehst, Starkey, dÉbruit, Blue Daisy, Micachu, Funkystepz, Kidkanevil, Om Unit & many more on the 22nd June 2012 (This Friday!) at Hidden as part of FOUND 2012, we caught up with XLII for a chat at AD Towers.
