For those who may not be aware of your sound, what key elements do you try to incorporate into your productions and even your DJ sets?
Deep rolling tech-funk, that slips into house as well as breaks.
Your DJ schedule is very hectic these days, how do you find the time to still release quality productions?
In all honesty, I’m struggling. But working with good people helps.
Do you ever produce while on tour?
Not very often, I have worked in L.A before (where I did next life), but as a rule, no.
Do you plan to focus on DJ'ing or Producing in the near and distant future, or continue to balance the two?
DJ’ing, I have a mix comp to do exclusive to Australia called "Destination Australia" for stomp distribution, so I’m concentrating my efforts on that for the moment.
Your latest production on SAW, 'K-Hole', again seems to cross the genre boundaries. Do you think that your work not only appeals to the Breakbeat loyals, but rather a whole host of people?
I hope so.
What can you tell us about any upcoming remixes and productions?
Meat Katie & Dark Globe "I feel it/future abuse" on Bedrock Breaks
Unkle "An eye for an eye" (Meat Katie remix) on Island Records
Apollo Kids "Counting off" (Meat Katie & Elite Force remix) fat
Meat Katie & Christian J "Turn me out" on Kingsize Records.
Do you have any opinions on the downturn in sales for record labels due to the increase of music pirating and downloading?
What producers or DJ's have been influential to you over the years?
I like all sorts of producers, Umek, Timberland, Derrick Carter, Bushwacka!, Peace Division, the list goes on forever.........
Koma + Bones
I would have nothing to play.
What kind and style of music do you like to listen in your spare time?
Jazz, hip hop, reggae, slower, more chilled stuff, like most people I should imagine?
Do you have any favourite albums that you can always pull out and enjoy?
Jill Scott "Who is Jill Scott" is an amazing album that helps me relax on flights, it's either that, or prescription drugs.
What do you like to get up to in your little spare time that you have?
I build things in my garden, and strip the paint off the doors in my house :o)
Look out for Meat Katie's latest production, 'K-Hole', on SAW Recordings. It's due in stores on the 9th June.
