Favourite breakfast: French classic - chocolate croissants + amandine + dark coffee.
What is the best thing about living in your city?
Cultural centre, unique friends and cheap flights to get out.
What music-related projects do you have a hand in?
DJ/Promoter at monthly parties Voices, and Beauty and the Beat.
Is your approach to music influenced by your upbringing or country of origin, and if so, how?
I guess growing up in Clermont-Fd, (France) kept me away from most of the hype surrounding music and fashion in bigger cities and taught me to appreciate music for what it is, not what it represents.
What are you looking forward to discovering while in Seattle?
The Westcoast lifestyle and Mudhoney T-shirts... are they still around?
What do you collect besides music?
Collecting is no good for you...
Three non-music nerd things to do?
Reading Iouri Droujnikov, growing your own and getting lost in the enchanted forests of Scotland.
Personal motto or mascot?
Love your brother, respect your sister.
What was the last song that made you laugh?
'Fake French' by Kenny Larkin... no wonder he's a comedy artist on the side!
What song gets you out of bed in the morning? '
Yellow Daises' by Fertile Ground.
Imagine you can create your dream band for a one-off show.
Who's gonna join you on stage?
Tony Allen (drums), Paul Randolph (bass), Brian Auger (organ), Guem (percussions), Pharoah Sanders (sax and magic), Mos Def and Bahamadia (rap, scat, whatever). I'll be watching!
