This provides the audience something very experimental, versitile and unique which make his performances an unforgetable experience. Behind the scenes as he just released his remix of Dave Seaman on the EP “Control Freak”.
Have you got a bedside book?
Yes, for many years it was “The Exorcist”, a first edition from 1975. I found the original one in a second hand shop and although not at my bedside any longer, it’s now in a special place in my house.
One track you listen to in secret?
I don’t really have any tracks I would keep a secret when talking about music I listen to. I love all of it and am not ashamed to say so! I listen to a lot of classical music when I am alone. But I have to tell you that my main track for ‘shower time’ is REM’s “Losing My Religion”.
What are you go at, besides music?
I really love to read, as much as I can. I read a lot of books about interesting things, and conspiracy theories like flat earth, UFOs etc.
