What was your state of mind when you recorded it?
I had just finished cooking and eating dinner and recorded the mix right after. I guess I was pretty happy!
"I don't think I'll miss anything more than a simple summer day in Brooklyn."
I definitely have the classic New York withdrawals. Some mornings I really crave a proper bagel. Sometimes its sort of surreal to me that I actually live in Berlin... Really I don't think I'll miss anything more than a simple summer day in Brooklyn–Coney Island, the beach, a few games of handball, and obviously pizza. Always pizza.
The EP was partly produced at home in Brooklyn and then later finished in Berlin. It’s incredibly special to me for a few reasons, the first being that it’s my debut on Rekids Special Projects—a vinyl-only series by my longtime favorite, Rekids. The release is a techno project but serves as a precursor to more emotionally-invested music I’ve written, which will land both on Rekids and Work Them Records.
What chances did you take?
It was the first record I signed since moving to Berlin. To me it it serves as a starting point here and an inspiration to keep going and push myself to work my hardest.
