Alex: what makes something exciting for you

Chris: its in the moment when I first hear it, or see it, I know if its right it seems somehow new to men, even if its old music I've just discovered or rediscovered

 

A: its a great way to amuse yourself, right

C: it can be more than that sometimes

A: we've been doing this stuff for five years now it seems to have no end

C: everything ends

 

A: what's your favorite record you found

C: that's a tough one there's been so many, and like you I've made some

A: what do you think of the new stuff out there

C: some of it is interesting, but I'm still intrigued with what's already been

 

A: has it always got to be cheese

C: no, but its always got to be different

A: are these the guidelines you work by

C: somewhat

 

C: what about you when you put a tape together

A: I like things not to make sense, but to make sense in the overall picture

some things didn't belong together, but that makes it better, more original

 

C: is that what you set out to do

A: yes most of the times

C: I think making tracks is much better than following tracks

A: forget about it, laughs
