Taking into account the rapid rise in popularity of house music over the course of this year, what do you think about the house scene currently?
It's really big now, seeing that there are so many sub-genres too. But with that also comes a lot of really bad house, or at least I think its bad haha.

Dirtybird. I don't know if it's a valid answer though, lol, seeing that I had a release, but as Munnibrotherz, with Rob Deep.
How do you rate 90s house music with todays?
These days there's more quality. Not saying the music from the 90s isn't good. Just the quality of production has a higher standard now.

Notorious n P.Diddy - Nasty Girl
Where do you dream of being in 5 years?
I actually wanna be a well known producer, like really well off in the next 5 years.. if that will happen, only time will tell
What next for you?
I'm just taking everything as it comes. I don't have anything big planned for future, even though I am in contact with big people haha.
Nigurr doesn't have any scheduled events as of yet, so you can catch him as the Munnibrotherz with Rob Deep in Cape Town, South Africa. Be sure to keep tabs on Nigurr's upcoming gigs though.
