“Part of my approach has always been to try and take elements of a style of music that maybe somewhat distasteful to my ears - say disco or techno - and try to remake it using my preferred sonic palette of 1960's production techniques and the influences of my favourite styles of music - Jamaican reggae, East and West African music and American funk and soul. A room full of people doesn't lie - it'll tell you in the first 5 seconds if your track doesn't stand up to the one before it. So I may revise and remake a song again and again until it has the effect or atmosphere that I'm after.”
