On the occasion of the release of the last Rivet EP on Kontra Musik (Bear Bile Part. 3, personal favorite), we asked him a few questions to know more about his influences. Thanks to him for answering!

Le meilleur morceau pour détruire un dancefloor ? The ideal track to slaughter a dancefloor?

Regis (and Surgeon) pretty much raised me. This is one of the most visceral tracks ever made.

Le track idéal en after ? The ideal track for an after party?

Recoil is a long time favourite of mine, probably one of the world’s most skilled producers. This one has the trademark growling bassline, a soothing atmosphere and a heart raising ending.

Le track idéal pour commencer un set ? Best track to start a set?

So clever, emotional and functional. The one true master of techno.

Le track idéal pour avoir le smile ? Best track to make people smile?

Well, it makes people smile!
And even though terribly cheesy it’s OK to play it since it’s by Hood! 😉

Le track idéal pour se délecter d’un 18 ans d’age dans un fauteuil au coin du feu ? Best track with an 18 year old wine sitting in a rocking chair next to the fireplace?

Musick To Play In The Dark is definitely made to be enjoyed in front of a fire. Throw the wine on the fire!

Le track idéal pour replonger en enfance ? Best track to dive back into childhood?

I used to a be a punkrocker until I heard Prodigy in 1994. No turning back after that.

Le track idéal pour te réveiller ? Best track to wake you up?

One of my earliest favorites. Still gets my mood up 20 years later.Whole album is essential for any techno/house lover.

Le track idéal à n’importe quelle heure ? Best track at any time?

Come and meet another kind of love
Meet another kind of love
Different than the real thing
But just as demanding
And just as demeaning

Treacled in apathy
All worries swept away
By one so simple act of annihilation
And I’ve not cried like this
And I’ve not felt this calm

Meet murder my angel
You’ve arrived at the moment
To cross over the threshold

Le track idéal pour caractériser tes productions ? Best track to characterize your productions best?

In 2010 I was at a musical crossroads where I had no idea what I wanted to make. Then I heard this and all was clear.

Le track idéal pour résumer tes inspirations musicales ? Best track to summarize your musical inspirations?

In my opinion, these are the true originators of techno. If I was to choose one record to play for the rest of my life, it would be the Liaisons Dangereuses LP.
