  1. Many of us have seen or heard about some of your acrobatic antics whilst dj’ing……a little bird told me,in the very beginning of the old Orbit days here, you used to do handstands and mix upside down on the decks @ the Club …is this also true?

  6. Wavatar James Smith says:

    House and techno is clearly your home and what the people know you for. But I think we’re all curious about the Sven Vath behind closed doors. I like yourself am a huge Michael Jackson fan, are there any other artists we perhaps would not associate with the Cocoon man?

  9. Wavatar Dani says:

    How immense does it feel to be in control of an atmosphere and peoples spirits at the drop of a beat?

  10. Wavatar Oli says:

    Is it of your belief that hopeful DJs would need to produce a track or two of good quality to become known on the house/techno scene? Particularly in the UK, where there are very few places to get recognized as a quality DJ? Do you think there progression in just raw mixing anymore?
