Curses: In a Berlin State of Mind
CURSES: Besides being a 5-story sex party, it is definitely the most exciting party in Berlin right now. One person can be dancing in exciting attire next to a totally naked person. The party allows people to lose all inhibitions and be their true, honest selves.
Judging by your stream of new releases and DJ sets, Berlin keeps being a great source of inspiration. How would you describe your Berlin state of mind?
Healthy and curious like a child. Finally finding love and cooking a lot keeps me focused and creative.

One good thing about living in Berlin is that you can travel to the rest of Europe very easily. What has been your most recent Euro coup-de-foudre?
The move from the US to Europe was so attractive to me because of the state of mind I was in and the music I was making. When I first hit Budapest, I fell head over heels in love with the architecture and mystic romanticism of the city. From spa life to nightlife, that city is gorgeous.

It seems there are more and more NY artists moving to Berlin. Is there some kind of a NY secret society?
[Laughs.] There are quite bit of New Yorkers here. We don't hang out with one another as much as we should, though. Recently our good friends Nadia and Khaled [aka DJ Abu Ashley] got married, and this brought everyone together, which was a nice reunion for the New York expats.
