Master the use of negative space and minimalism in an electronic avant-garde soundscape on your debut? Easy. We caught up with Metro Skim for a Christmas chat…

What have been your most memorable moments of 2017?

There are a few of them. Of course getting in touch with Steve Bicknell and signing for 6dimensions. Also had some nice gigs this year and some great moments in the studio when things fall together.

What’s your album of the year?

Mmm…. that’s difficult as I’m not a DJ so not always updated on all the music released, but I really like the aThe Dynamic Dispatch album from Staffan Linzatti.

What was the best gig (besides your own) that you’ve been to this year?

Really enjoyed Jeff Mills sets, but LSD at Reaktor in the Netherlands really impressed me.

Where will you be this Christmas and New Year?

Always with family and friends.

No live gigs for me this year so I can really enjoy the holidays.

What’s your favourite thing to eat or drink at Christmas?

As usual some nice meat and a lot of alcohol. No, it doesn’t matter what it will be. It’s important to have some close friends with you during this time.

What’s the best and worst Christmas present you’ve ever received?

Never received a worst present.

My best present was to date is my Roland TR909 but also I really enjoy all the little things. This week I received some new ear pads for my headphones……happy as a little child.

Do you have any resolutions for 2018?

I don’t make once a year resolutions. I strive for excellence daily. I don’t set limitations because there are no limits.

What is one thing you hope does not continue into 2018?

New year, new things, new opportunities it’s your own path you can choose.

What album are you hoping for/looking forward to the most from 2018?

Really looking forward to the 6dimensions album with all the artists involved in this project, and I hope I can continue to make a lot of music and keep pushing my live act to another dimension.

What band/act do you think we should keep our eyes on in 2018?

Keep your eyes on 6dimensions, I know there will be some great releases and 6dimensions showcases planned for 2018!!!!!!
