Hi Pete! Can you share some of the music, live shows, or raves that deeply inspired you while growing up?
Throughout your career, you have developed a distinct and consistent style. Can you elaborate on whether this was a conscious choice or something that naturally evolved? If it was an intentional decision, were there specific sounds, samples, or gear you actively sought out to achieve your signature sound?
When you start working on a new track, how do you typically begin the creative process? Is there a specific workflow, concept, or idea that serves as a catalyst for your music-making?
Turing your phone off is sage advice. Do you have any rituals or routines that you follow when starting a new track or album?
Get sleep, eat well, try to do some exercise. Obvious stuff and Im not always the best at it, but these simple practices can help. My partner is always telling me to have breaks, leave the studio, go to the park, stroke a dog, hug a tree etc However, again, get stuck in…just make sure you have a deadline and know how much you’re getting paid.
