Can you tell us about the ideas and inspirations behind this mix?

Jonas Mekas and the woods.

As far as you remember, what was your first song or band that you fell in love with when you were a kid or a teenager?

As a teenager I fell in love with Drukqs (editor’s note: fifth studio album of Aphex Twin). A beloved friend of mine introduced me.

Do you remember your first encounter with electronic music and can you elaborate on that?

Used to watch MTV as a kid, that’s where I had my first encounter. Thought that the Chemical Brothers were ace. But when I think about it, it comes to my mind that Anime Theme Songs must be at the beginning.

Tell us about one of your best, worst, funniest or strangest DJ experiences.

The best DJ experiences I had were when people opened up and enjoyed the music.

Our last featured artist Bonnie would like to know, what is happening and what are the best venues/parties in the Viennese nightlife scene at the moment?

The best venues in Vienna are temporary off-locations. Parties I like to go to, when speaking of Techno, are Technoland, No Drama, Funkroom and Disorder. Also started something with Dj Warzone which goes by the name of Horsepower.

Get in touch with our next artist Lulu. What would you like to know?

What kind of sounds have major impact on you (e.g. synthesizer, drum machine) and why do you think is it like that?
