The City that inspires me the most…

Berlin for sure. The art, culture and history is encapsulating and it’s made home to some of my most fondest memories including recording a soundtrack for film, performing in a friends play and meeting my hip-hop hero.

My desert-island disc would be...

Soundtrack to the film Drive. Made up of beautifully hypnotic synth-pop filled with the ambience and underlying tensions of the super cool urban thriller. Compiled by Cliff Martinez (drummer from RHCP), it features electro masterminds Chromatics and Kavinsky. My favourite track is Under Your Spell by Desire. A wonderful soundscape that sends you away to neon lights and fast cars in an 80’s L.A.
