Remix What You Love
Although hes now remixed the greats from New Order to Underworld, Digweed insists that
its not the name that counts. With remixing, its just
about working on tracks that you like. If you get the opportunity to do
a major band, then great, he says.
||I tend to like dark moody, hypnotic, progressive, driving house
music. But as soon as you put a label on it, you categorize
it he explains. You know, I think its more about music
being music. I play dance music and that covers quite a few genres.
Digweed names the Bladerunner soundtrack and Pink
Floyds The Wall as his all-time favorite records.
However, these days he mostly listens to
newer stuff. Ive got a record label now, so I spend most of my
time just listening to demos from producers and DJs, he says.
Digweed never expected to hit superstar DJ status, and hes very
thankful for his situation. Im really fortunate that I work with amazing
people, he says. I met Nick on a skiing holiday, and then he
came to the studio and we started working together. We really gelled
from the start, and its been 10 years now.
