Hi everyone. As part of the build up to our big party at the Bells Of Shoreditch on Easter weekend (less than three weeks to go! Full details HERE!), we sat down with our two special guest DJs, Peo De Pitte and Meat Katie, to exclusively chat with them about the hot topics in the world at the moment – kind of like a mash up of Newsnight and MTV Base, with Jeremy Paxman bogling to jump up drum n bass, just to set the scene for you.
Anyway, we first spoke to electro-funkster Peo De Pitte with some hard-hitting questions. Peo has been smashing dancefloors all over the world with his unique brand of bouncy bass music and mental mash ups. And when he’s not tearing up nightclubs, he’s usually found sat astride his studio mixing desk, cooking up beats and samples for his bass-heavy productions and remixes for the stars. Here’s what he had to say about jelly wrestling with Meat Katie and much, much more…
Bass[sic]: To kick off… You and Meat Katie make up one of the biggest lineups we’ve had at Bass[sic], but did you know that you’re probably the baldest lineup too? Of the two of you, who do you think has the LEAST body hair overall?
Peo: If I just remember to pluck my ear hair it might be a close competition.
Bass[sic]: For those people who are unfamiliar with you, how would you sum up the Peo de Pitte sound in only 3 words?
Peo: Three day bender!
Bass[sic]: Moving onto the dancefloor, which tune are you most looking forward to dropping at Bass[sic] on the 29th of March?
Peo: I have a few new ones that I’m looking forward to playing from my next EP… will keep the titles under wraps for now!
Bass[sic]: Of all of the massive tunes that have been released over the years, what is the one tune that you wish you’d written or signed to your label?
Peo: My own label was just a stepping stone in the beginning to get my own voice heard when no other labels wanted to answer my emails so I don’t really have any regrets.
Bass[sic]: Now onto the serious questions that everyone’s been dying to know the answers to… How do you prefer your eggs to be cooked?
Peo: Sunny side up!
Bass[sic]: What’s the last album you bought on CD?
Peo: Hmm, yeah it must have been the last Prodigy album. I still have an obsession with buying their physical products!
Bass[sic]: Who would win in a jelly wrestling contest:- you or Meat Katie?
Peo: I’m a skinny lanky person, I think he could just sit on me and he would win. But I might just have my garlic/chilli cocktail before and kill him with my breath!
Bass[sic]: Which do you prefer:- cats or dogs?
Peo: Cats, I used to have one. Hated dogs in my early days but I do like them now… But yeah cats still win.
Bass[sic]: Star Wars or Star Trek?
Peo: Star Wars… maybe a cuddle with Princess Leia.
Bass[sic]: Who really shot first:- Greedo? Or Han Solo?
Peo: Oh, someone’s a fan here… I’d just say Han I guess…
Bass[sic]: Would you rather be trapped in a room with 1 horse-sized chicken? Or 10 chicken-sized breakbeat purists?
Peo: I’d probably be afraid of what that horse-sized chicken would do to me when it gets hungry. The chicken sized purists I could always step on when they raise their voices, or play them re-rubs so they keep quiet.
Bass[sic]: Do you have a musical guilty pleasure?
Peo: Yesterday I actually had a listen to an old Swedish artist I grew up to, Eric Gadd – Bara Himlen Ser På…. Google that if you dare. [Ed: we did and it was… sexual]
Bass[sic]: What was the last movie you went to see at the cinema?
Peo: Django Unchained… good stuff!
Bass[sic]: Do you have any hidden talents?
Peo: I used to train in Judo
Bass[sic]: And finally, what are you up to for the rest of this year? Releases, gigs, tours, etc?
Peo: Next up is my release with NAPT on Strictly Rhythm sometime this month. Going to America for gigs in May and later on Australia again. 2013 should be a good one!
