CJ: Your upcoming album, Tons of Friends, is a different style from most of your previous works, what can we expect from it?
Phra: Yes, it’s not a 12 club tracks album…or a 12 Day N Night rmx album, it’s more what we like to listen to in our car when we are going to the airport… So actually it’s airport music to listen to on an iPod near the security control and when you’re waiting at the gate. Don’t expect nothin from this album if you don’t have to go to the airport!
CJ: Was it different for you sitting down and nailing out a whole album and not just another EP?
Phra: No differences, we worked the album about 2 years in free time between rmxs and gigs so it was kinda a way to work on something different in between..make sense?
CJ: Have there been any songs that you heard and instantly knew you wanted to do a remix of?
Phra: Sometimes…but if I really like a song it’s actually difficult for me / or Bot to rmx it! We don’t want to touch the magic of the original.
CJ: Any current obsessions, music or otherwise?
CJ: Who’s your favorite new artist on the scene right now?
Phra: Hudson Mohawke is incredible!
CJ: Lastly, I know you love animals, but what animal would you be?
Phra: My dog will reply on this : bau bau—-grrrr—bau bau bauuu
Crookers ft. Kelis – No Security (320 kbps)
