How have you evolved as DJs over the years?
We have been DJing for 20 years now, starting off in the bedroom on a pair of belt drive decks so we have plenty of experience. Only recently have we made the jump to USBs – so glad that I did. But I must say the first time we tried it for a show it didn’t work right so we had no music and had to borrow some guy’s CDs, which was embarrassing. We’ve done a lot of warm-up slots over the years including Space Ibiza, Sankeys, Ministry of Sound and a load more. The warm-up slot is so important – people are just coming in and starting to get loose so you can’t just smash it out. I think it’s helped us evolve a lot.

What’s your record to get any dancefloor going?
At the moment it’s Detlef – Jaydee. Guaranteed to go off.

Any record that unfortunately cleared it?
Happy to say none on this one, ha ha!

Some say club culture is dying. What do you think?
Bullshit. We played at Lightbox London for the 10th birthday last week and it was so busy by 12pm. I think it’s thriving.

What are you up to at the moment?
The Work My Body EP is out now. We have an EP coming on Jamie Jones’s Hottrax label on 24 November, which we’re so buzzing for. Then coming up we have music coming on Rawthentic Music, which Nathan Barato and Carlo Lio are re-launching, another EP on Solá for Solardo and loads more. Also we have a debut show in Hull on 24 November, which we’re really excited about.

What’s on your rider?
