First off, Tell how you got into Electro and how you created one of the most consistent labels out there right now “Exploited” – I have been into so many different music styles at once but Hip Hop was my first love. It just didnt feel right for me as a DJ at some point. I will always be an eclectic DJ that cant really stay true to one genre. Though my sets are quite warm and housey at the moment I dont know how I will sound in 6 months. I see this as my personal freedom to just go with the time and not try to repeat myself. So you can still say when you book Shir Khan you dont know really whats happening. Maybe a good thing – sometimes bad:) That has always been the same approach to my label. There is not that one labelsound. It only reflects what I like as a DJ at the moment. This can go from House, to Disco, Tropical and maybe I will start releasing some bangers in the future again. Who knows:)
Now, if our readers and your fans haven’t figured it our yet, your a Jungle Book Fan, whats your favourite scene? – There is plenty of scenes I like: The Monkey Dance, The Balu Dance and how Mowgli burns Shir Khan’s tail:) Ouch.
Now, we have a overcrowded planet, which i don’t really care about. What i do care about planet being overcrowded by Dj’s, We aren’t saying that they are not all talented but how would you suggest we could lower the percentage of mates calling themselves DJ’s? – I dont care who calls themselves DJs or not. Everyone should have the chance to be a DJ. However – to me its more about the selection, than the perfection of the mix. I am seriously bored with Ableton Live and Traktor Mixes….they all sound too perfect. I am missing the warmth and the little mistakes….Thats why I have said to myself I am not going to post anymore edited mixes of mine…I only will do livemixes….they just sound more real.
Getting Album of the month in the two biggest dance magazines, DJ Mag & Mix Mag for your album “Exploited”, how did that make you feel? – It encouraged me to move on and believe in what I do and that I might be quite good in it. I am sure there is another Mix-CD/Compilation coming of mine next year:)
To the studio, what are your future projects now? anything in the works… – Theres a few rumours….but I cant tell:)
When can we expect Shir Khan in Australia? – I have been 2 times to Australia to tour there. I really loved it. I hope I am gonna come back in the next year. Would be heaps of fun:)
You’ve put together a little mix for us, what can we expect? Our ears are excited! – Just have a listen 🙂
Finally, any words for your fans down under? – I have the inner feeling I have a strong connection to Australia. I miss you people from Sidney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and the few places I havent been yet but I am sure I am gonna come back next year.
