“House music is the language I speak naturally, growing up listening to soul, funk and disco. Although this heritage will always influence my music production, I feel this language doesn’t currently allows me to easily describe the ever changing contemporary world. My music research is always more driven by the shamanic aspects of the relationship between man and nature, and man to man. The organic texture and ethnic feel of my latest productions is a reminder of our history and heritage. And in this moment of dehumanization I feel it’s important to remember who we are and where we come from.”
