Best thing that happened in 2015: I redid my entire music studio with mountains of amazing hardware, including 30 vintage drum machines and a huge Eurorack modular system.

Worst thing that happened in 2015: I had my Paris show cancelled because of the terror attacks… However, it’s back on for January 29 and I added a Bordeaux show the next night!

The track I played out the most this year: Alex Bau: “On Synth”

My favorite new artist this year was: Silent Servant. OK, I know he has been around forever, BUT he was a discovery for me. The guy is on an upward path… super hot.

My favorite NYC place or party to play this year was: Bossa Nova Civic Club!

My favorite NYC-based label was: The return of Path Records. It’s great to see vinyl and old labels restarting!

My favorite NYC-based radio station was: YouTube!

My vote for NYC’s hottest DJs this year: Against Nature (Daniel Meagher)… We have the same tastes; as I say, he has “selection perfection”!

Record I’m most likely to drop on NYE: Double FM: “Illusion”

In 2016, I’m most looking forward to: My new album, “Separate Dimension,” coming out!

My New Year’s resolution is: It’s always the same… make more music!

Trend I predict will be big in ’16: Well, the trend of EBM/goth entering the techno world… and, well, all music will continue and some bands/artists will break out big!
