Along the same lines, a lot of these new scenes built off of old music attract younger and younger crowds–especially abroad. When you’re on the road, have the changing demographics influenced the way you approach a dance floor/pack your bag?
Not at all. Actually, it’s opened it up to where I can play some of the jams that were go-tos for me back in the day. Like I said, these young crowds and pop-up scenes are still experiencing what house is about and it gives us an opportunity to teach and share the roots and culture of house music.
