Any chance of some new Fatboy material? "It's just not at the top of my list. I've got a baby daughter... I want to see her grow up. But there's also the problem of writer's block. With the Atari, I could pull out some vinyl, sample a few bits and pieces and get a groove going..."
But you can do that in Ableton. It's probably even easier in Ableton... "I know! Look, you don't have to convince me. I know what Ableton's capable of. [He switches on the laptop and plays a squelching, heavily-filtered tune.] I made this yesterday. I get sent about 50 or 60 tunes every day and I go through them, looking for stuff to play in my set. Sometimes, there might just be a bassline that I like or a drum-break. If I find four or five different elements from different tunes, I put them all together and create a new piece of music that I can play out live. It's a mash-up, really.
"But, as I said, before, I sort of come to a standstill when I try to get the laptop to talk to the outside world. I get frustrated and then... themoment's gone. I switch everything off and go into the kitchen to make a cup of tea.
"I'm going to have to bite the bullet at some point. I know I'm going to have to sit here and make a tune in Ableton. It'll be good therapy for me."
PS: пара видео интервью с ним в его старой студии. Во втором видео он там показывает работу Атари.
