What life moments inspired you to start making electronic music?
SB: I was a DJ and one day this new hot music came in from Chicago called house. I was blown away and jumped straight on it and it wasn’t long before I started doing illicit remixes of tracks putting house beats to them.
What pulled you towards working on this remix?
SB: I did a lot of work for Champion in the 90’s and met the track’s producer Rollo often when I visited London. We always discussed how to program drums and what swing to apply. Then fast forward a decade and I get the offer to remix this track, had to be done!
Besides this remix, what is your favorite original work you have released?
SB: I have done 3000 productions and remixes over the years so it’s hard to pick one, but the most well known track is Robin S ‘Show Me Love’ and my biggest artist single so far is ‘Put ‘Em High’ even though last three singles ‘Losing Contro’, ‘You Can Have It All’ and ‘Be Kind’ are doing really well too so I’ve kept busy.
Do you prefer being in the studio or performing live?
SB: Live shows inspire me a lot in the studio. Love to play things I’m working on to see how the crowd reacts, then tweak and try at the next gig. I love both really!
What has been you greatest achievement so far, and what is your next major goal?
SB: I think my three artist albums are my proudest achievement. It’s a special feeling writing a full album of original songs without having to follow guide lines or rules, then seeing people being into the music.
