“When we started really hanging out, before we started the label, it was every single Saturday down at a record store called Killa Cutz, which is sadly gone now – it’s turned into a bike rental shop. We used to go there every Saturday at ten o’clock – that’s when the boxes of promos would arrive – and we’d be in there listening to records all day. That’s where our love for this comes from.”

As you’ve probably noticed, an interview usually precedes an event at Trouw. We’ve adapted quite well to receiving last minute replies but mere hours before an appearance proved too much for even us. An opportunity to share some of Spencer’s thoughts and experiences doesn’t come along everyday and we’d be fools to resign this one to the wastebasket. So without further delay and in the spirit of better late than never, may we present the Spencer interview.

Usually, when an artist wants to do an interview by mail, I try my best to still do it over Skype. For some reason, many Spanish artists are very afraid of their English skills, and think they won’t be able to express themselves fully - in a way that often is correct. On the other hand, an interviewer will never be able to get the most out of a question with an interview by mail, for obvious reasons. Strangely enough, Marc Piñol answered me very blatantly while sitting in front of his computer and gave some beautiful open answers. Below you can read about his affection with pop, his aversion to Sónar and his discontentment with his own productions.

House has few secrets left for Mano le Tough. Thanks to his intensive submersion in Berlin’s club culture, it takes more than some random Kerri Chandler rip-off to get him enthusiastic. Mano likes his music fresh and original. As if we weren’t already excited enough to see him play!

Serge had a chat with DJ Deep (Cyril Etienne) about his past and a good look into the future of his Deeply Rooted label and the status of the Parisian club scene.

When thinking about a Food Bazaar, you’re probably thinking about cuisine. And that’s correct, because we’ve got burgers, pizzas, Korean food, vegan, gluten-free, ice cream, sweets, cheese, drinks and so much more… But there’s so much more you can do with food than just fill your belly. We previously wrote about the Food Chain Installation by Itamar Gilboa, which you can view on the vide in our building. Here are some more highlights on June 19th which you can use to fill the time in-between eating all those delicious items.
