We Spoke To Sixth Avenue ExpressBy Bruno Bayley
There are often news stories featuring odd set ups, where the wives of serial killers, or the mothers of prostitute slaying perverts lived in total ignorance of their activities. That’s a bit how I feel about my friend Dave. Dave lived with me throughout university, and though he often told all of us he was making music, we sort of assumed he was just pissing about and putting off getting a job or doing anything useful around the house. Then, about a month ago I actually clicked on a link he sent me and found out that when he isn’t breaking electronic goods, finishing his masters degree, or playing for his local cricket team, he makes songs that strangers on the internet really, really like. Primarily I feel like a dick who didn’t pay attention to a friend’s talents, but partly I also still can’t quite believe it. So I had a chat with him to clear things up.
So, were you secretly making electronic music back in Manchester? Because back then I sort of assumed you only liked music with guitars in it, you used to wear a neckerchief...
When did you start getting properly into dance?
OK, I am struggling to see that past life. When did you start getting serious about making music?
