If you could work with any other Producer/ Rapper/ Singer on a record who would it be and why?

Producer: James Blake, I think he’s a genius in producing minimalistic, electronic music in a simple and soulful way.

James Blake

I think his artistic expression is of really high quality, and I’d love to learn from him or Nellee Hooper, the producer of Björk’s debut album, since it’s my favourite album. Or Flying Lotus, because he makes such extravagant beats.

Rapper: Tylor the Creator, because his attitude is rowdy in a sophisticated yet unique and playful way. His voice tembre is beautiful!

Sir Elton John and Jennifer Lawrence

Rate yourself(s) on a scale of 1-10?

If Hollywood made a movie about your life who would you like to see play the lead role as you?

Emilia Clarke (Khaleesi from GOT)

If You could trade places with another person for a week- famous or non famous/living or dead / real or fictional who would it be?

Björk. I think it’s amazing how she uncompromisingly keeps her integrity, honesty and originality throughout her artistic work. I’d love to experience that kind of self-trust and strength.
