We last saw you at the We Love Space opening party in Ibiza last summer where you well and truly owned the Terrace. It was one of the most loved and talked about sets of our holiday! Where can we experience some more Smokin Jo magic this summer?
Oh thank you very much. I am still in talks at the moment but hopefully I will be at two venues which I cannot mention just yet, I also have a new night with my mate Skin (Skunk Anansie) called The Electric Tiger Cave so we are hoping to bring it to Ibiza, all very exciting.
How’ve you been finding using your Spaced360 speaker?
I love it, the sound is wicked. I have been using it in the bedroom, when I am working on my laptop or my phone , I can listen to music, very handy.
What was this first piece of DJ gear you brought? And, do you still have it?
I bought an a technics 1200 turntable and yes I still have it, it has seen better days though. I don’t use it much anymore at home as all my music is on a hard drive now.
You’ve got a new EP out soon ‘I See Sunrise’ with Falomir. It’s got ‘summer’ stamped all over it. Seriously funky. So would you rather be dancing at ‘sunset’ or ‘sunrise’?
I think I prefer dancing at sunset, sunrise means I have been up all night, eeekk prefer not to do that anymore.
Sum up the Smokin Jo sound in three words…
bassllines, uplifting, stomping
Which record in your bag is being worked the hardest the moment?
And what’s the most embarrassing record in your collection?
Seriously I do not have one, I love all music and if I have it in my collection it means it is good and I like it, not embarrassing at all.
As a White Isle regular do you have any lesser-known tips you can share with us?
My only tip would be to get off the beaten track, head up north of the island, oh a must is a trip to Tagomago island for lunch, it is stunning
And finally, the one we ask everyone, what would you do as a Techno Kitten for the day?
I would lie around all day being stroked and pampered!
