Having a residency in Japan, how has the electronic scene changed since your time there? Have you noticed a difference in styles from the culture there?

Over the course the years, techno has been around for a while. What do you think is your duo’s strength that keeps it refreshing for your audience?

Working with the beat packs you’ve made, have you ever received any artists sending you their work using those sound packs? Have you recognized it at all while going to any shows?

Electronic music has a deep history over the past 4 decades, where do you find your inspiration in electronic music?

While making a song, is there a routine or pattern you do to make your music or do you construct it by feel?

Live, how ten do you improvise? If so, what makes you confident in doing so?

There are so many new ‘controllers’ that roll out faster than phones – how do you determine what is worth keeping? Is it because you can use it live and at home?

Tracks such as ‘The Signs Within’ and ‘Life We Knew’ radiate a deliciously sinister hook while track such as ‘Secret Garden’ and ‘Perfect Dominance’ hit the audience with something more deep, what style or sounds should fans expect more from you guys?
