Firstly, can you describe your music in three words?
Not really, but today maybe:
Expansive, analogue, exploratory.
So earlier this year we saw you re-imagining Bjorks ‘Arisen my Senses’. Can you tell us a little more about your relationship with Bjork and perhaps the ways in which she has played a role in your own music?
She’s such a spiritual creature, seemingly true to herself, a great producer, editor, all round creator & artist – it’s hard NOT to be inspired by somebody like that. In terms of the remix – we had met briefly a few times & then after playing Anxi on a couple of mixes, she asked her label to get in touch about a remix. Then I received some of the most mind-blowing stems I’ve ever heard – and instead of doing standard techno remix, I basically re-imagined the song!! Forever grateful that she entrusted me enough to give it a go!
Are there any other successful women in music that you feel have inspired your work?
There are so many women in music who do inspire but really for me, it’s often the incredibly strong women in my family & close friendship circle – they reflect back to me the immense power women hold – the way we rally together to hold space for one another it inspires me every day.
You have a lot of travel in your upcoming schedule. Do you feel travel influences your music at all or is it more innate than that to you?
Travel can be such an expansive experience for sure, but atm I’m so in-and-out that I don’t get to explore so much & therefore connect. The last time I was able to do that was when I spent an extra 10 days in LA in March. I drove to Big Sur with friends, swam in the ocean & camped in the Red Wood forests, hiked up to a waterfall & felt totally & utterly connected.
