Your music with Hercules has really given you a reputation as someone who really knows his stuff when it comes to vintage disco and dance music — but do you keep up with new music? Is there current dance music that you love?
Yeah, of course, especially because I DJ so much. I have to! I have to tune in to what's going on, and I have my favorites, definitely.
Yeah, I was just curious because when one gets into the whole '70s-disco thing, there's a tendency to get into the mindset of "Oh, it was so much better back then" and "No one makes music like this nowadays."
No, I definitely do not think that that's the case. I mean, I don't think that music was necessarily "better" back in the '70s. Although, I do think musicians were treated differently then, and the music industry was different then. There was a respect for songwriting and musicianship that's changed a bit in pop music. But I don't necessarily think it's better or worse or anything.
