You know, kids come to see me in the same way that their parents would go to see a rock concert.
So dance music is now pop music. So now, as a dance producer, what do I have to do? So I’m starting to do alien music, because pop is not pop anymore; we need to go alien to be independent.
Kids listen to everything on the Internet.
The more melodies and chord changes, the less good it is for the clubs, but the better it is for radio, because it makes it really emotional.
I can make everything I do come from my laptop. Even when I go to a big studio, all I do is to plug in my laptops. That’s they way I do it.
I have studios in the different places where I live – in Ibiza, Paris and London – but they’re not crazy studios, they’re just rooms with good monitors, and all I do is plug my laptop in. It’s a different way to make music, but for me, I love it, because it’s more connected to the world.
If you put a demo on the net and people say it was the finished version then they’re going to say it sucks. I really hate that.
I mix up all styles on my albums because that is what music is about now.
I headline concert halls for 20,000 people, but I still play smaller venues.
I’m totally not a nostalgic person. I always look to the future and as much as I’ve enjoyed the ride until now and the different phases, I’m more excited about the next music.
I’ve created a bridge between European electronic culture and urban American culture, and I’ve worked with established brands.
It’s nice because success has allowed me to have a blast on stage, to be in the studio with amazing people, but I find it all a bit bizarre.
I wanna be a nice guy.
Our job as producers is to make the music sound as good as possible.
Actually, because of new technologies, my full studio is on my laptop. And I have a little keyboard in my bag. I can make everything I do come from my laptop. Even when I go to a big studio, all I do is to plug in my laptops. That’s they way I do it.
