INTERVIEW: DAN AVERY

THIS FRIDAY WILL MARK THE FIRST TIME DAN AVERY, ONE OF THE UK’S LIVEST DJ’S PLAYS IN NYC. AT GLASSLANDS IN BROOKLYN ALONG WITH JDH AND DAVE P FOR THEIR UPCOMING FIXED PARTY, BE SURE TO CHECK HIM OUT. ALSO BE SURE TO LISTEN TO THIS RADIO SHOW HE JUST DID FOR RBMA RADIO AND THE INTERVIEW MELLANY DID WITH THE LONDON BASED DJ:

Whats your relationship with NY like?  Any experiences dj’ing in NYC?: This will be my fifth time in the city but I’ve never played in the US before. I love New York! So much great music has come from there too. Luckily I have a few days off to enjoy the place.

 What are some major / minor differences you perceive from the club scene in NYC vs. London?: I guess Londoners are totally spoilt by how many great nightclub venues we have to choose from. It would seem that New York has had a bit of a tough time with some weird and unfathomable ‘dancing laws’ over the last decade but where there’s a will there’s a way. It seems that the underground scene has been forced to put on events in some really interesting venues. You guys pretty much invented what we’re all doing now anyway.

 Top 5 songs you’re into playing right now?:

Daniel Avery – Drone Logic (Factory Floor Remix)

Bonobo – Cirrus

Sebastien Tex – Butterfish

Mock & Toof – Walking The Streets (Legowelt Remix)

Dimitri Veimar – Obama & Birds

Can you put us on to any UK artists you think deserve some light?: There is so much good stuff right now. All of these deserve to be checked out: Matt Walsh, Raudive, Timothy J Fairplay, Eskimo Twins, Call Super, Scott Fraser, Hardway Bros, People Get Real, Capracara…

 NYC dream venue to play: I don’t know about playing but I would love to have experienced The Loft and The Paradise Garage at the height of their powers.
