“Stupidity combined with arrogance and a huge ego will get you a long way.”
“There’s a great club in London called The Secret Sundays, and it’s on a Sunday afternoon and it’s outdoors, and it’s mainly Italians that go, and they all look great, and they’re dancing on the tables, and life’s a party, and they’re totally into the music, going mental, and that’s when dance music is really fantastic, I think.”
“Yes, it’s a very difficult thing to do, to promote a record, do television shows, and to still want to remain private, it’s really quite difficult to explain to people what you’re trying to do. I mean I’d actually quite like to be a recluse, but you know, you’ve got to promote the record as well.”
“The clubs are good fun-having a laugh, really having a good time.”
“Well, I love what you would call boys’ music, you know, the prodigy, banging techno, music that girls generally don’t like.”
“Dance music is about having a good time, and a lot of dance music is very serious now. When progressive house and progressive tech came along, it was kind of serious, but it’s all context as well.”
“There are people that have that confidence, who march into VIP areas. I assume I won’t get in. I don’t say, ‘Do you know who I am?’, but sometimes I’m with someone who says it for you. Then, I pretend to be all, ‘Oh, please don’t shame me!’.”
“I used to play works in progress to people, but now I wait ’til it’s finished, because you make excuses all the time: ‘Well, there’s gonna be an orchestra on it.’ Rather than make excuses, wait ’til it’s finished, and then they can say they don’t like it.”
“I don’t think you ever know in yourself whether you have gone mad. You exist in a bubble. There comes a point where you suddenly feel not really a part of the world, you’re just passing through.”
“Shameless self-publicity works, of course: living your life as a soap opera.”
“If I could, I’d be a recluse. I do want to be one. I’m trying really hard. But it’s a difficult thing to pull off in this job.”
“One Direction. Proper pop band. There has to be a band that people want to scream at. I don’t think I’ve ever behaved like a pop star.”
“Electroclash is good because it’s stayed underground.”
“I feel like the Internet has really freed everything up to an extent, hasn’t it? That radio maybe doesn’t have quite the power that it had before.”
“I’m beginning to think that you should only be allowed to serve two terms, before madness sets in.”
“There’s nothing I like more than being on a dance floor with a thousand people feeling love for humanity.”
