Q&A DJ FIK
- What is your all-time favorite song?
Difficult question ... I think I'll go with 'Full Clip' by Gang Starr.
- What's the most special place you've ever played?
I once played on a small ship, which was very special. At first I was supposed to play in the basement, but due to technical problems, I started playing upstairs on the deck of the ship. For six hours the boat shook in all directions, which was very special 🙂
- If you could only play one artist for the rest of your life, who would you choose?
Another difficult question. I would say A-Trak, always has good releases, and he also combines the styles I like to spin myself!
- What is the last sneaker you bought?
The New Balance 574.
- What is your holy sneaker grail?
I don't have a holy sneaker grail yet.
- What future music releases are you most excited about?
I hope there are a lot more releases coming out of the UK garage from labels like 'Shall Not Fade' and artists like 'Interplanetary Criminal' and 'PJ Bridger'. I really love that music.
- What is your favorite sneaker to spin in?
I'm a big fan of New Balance sneakers.
