Sarah Palin taught me in a seminar
Has your hometown of Los Angeles been a major influence in getting you into the house music scene?
Wouldn’t say it’s been a massive influence on me, as majority of stuff i bang out is from across the pond. But I guess you can say decent weather could be a good mood setter
Which DJs have influenced your style of producing?
There’s lots, and the list seems to be expanding every day. But recently, I would say dude’s like Quell, Tigerskin, Christopher Rau, Kyle Hall.. to name a few ofcourse

Not sure if it’s happened yet. For some in the UK it would probably be the Sincerely 91 EP.

Hard to say, but Germany is always a safe bet

I run it with two friends out of Montreal, one being rising artist/vocalist Forrest. We sign music we like and try to keep it in the family.
What does the future hold for ‘Amadeus Records’?
Trying to stay relevant I suppose haha
You have done a lot of work with fellow compatriot Steve Huerta. Can you tell us a bit about your connection with him?
I secretly despise the guy, but he makes decent music so I’ll put up with him in the mean time
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?

Don’t be dumb

Evan Iff, Steve Huerta, Sage Caswell, Ben La Desh, Terrance Pearce, James Del Barco, Zoo Look, DFRNT
How do you rate 90s house music with todays?
Not sure, I wasn’t really around for the era... or at least not comprehending what was going on. But it feels as if house music is kinda kickin at the moment. Pretty good year to be a DJ I guess
What track would you play to rescue a dance floor?
DJ Assassin - A Face In The Crowd (Intellidred Mix)

Hopefully doing the same thing, maybe even ghost producing some pop stuff... who knows, like I said, it's a pretty good time to be a DJ/producer
