    06: Antony & Cleopatra / "Slow Down"

    06: Antony & Cleopatra / "Slow Down"

    Antony & Cleopatra are a fantastic London dance duo who make club music with ancient origin and a healthy dash of pathos. Alex and Anita are prolific songwriters as a team and as individuals, and we first met nearly 6 years ago while working on some of the early A&C records. “Slow Down” is a culmination of that relationship, and we connected over internet video transmission to share stories about the Queen’s Empire, timing, control, Bono & Tiesto, the first songs they wrote as kids, and of course the creation process for our song on “Someday”.

    05: Brillstein aka (thee) Mike B / "The Plaza"

    SOMEDAY is out! Go and listen to the album! And then afterwards, check out this pod with my guest Brillstein aka Thee Mike B. Mike is an encyclopedia of electronic knowledge, one of the best DJs I know and a really good friend. He’s the only guest on the album who attended my wedding. He’s also the only guest who isn’t a singer. We dive really deep into meeting in the Myspace era, the first time I played in LA, bonding over tacos at the Alameda Swap Meet, having the same birthday, our collab group Fifteenth and the long journey of "The Plaza" from seed to flower.
