How did you get involved with the IF?
I've been a long-time supporter of the label, and a fan of the artists and especially the parties -
Omniglobe at Global Village was one of my very first raves, back in 1995 - and Andrez and I have chatted on and off various
music related internet boards over the last 5 years or so.
What does IF? mean to you?
IF? is like standing between two opposing
mirrors and looking eternally forward and backwards into infinity. It's about possibilities. The label, to me, is about
finding people who are driven to achieve the unknown with what they have at their disposal.

What are your thoughts on sampling
and humour in music?
I like that artists
can not take themselves too seriously, and it can be fun also to lighten the mood on the dance floor. It also depends on the
track, too. If a track is just great music and it happens to come along with a fucked up or silly sounding sample, I'll tend
to play it regardless. What I really, really hate, though, is when a producer just puts in an obligatory sample that adds
nothing to an already unimaginative track, just to make it more memorable. That's just lazy producing.
