(Dominique) Well, how I came across getting on Earthquake? Is that I just signed to a new management called Insanity Group and DJ Fresh signed with them as well so I had to fly to London to record my first album and I met up with DJ Fresh and he played me the track so I went in his home studio and recorded a top line for it… So I played it to my manager and to Sony so they loved it and it went from there…
How was collaborating with Diplo and DJ Fresh? Any particular or funny anecdote of the time you spent with them at the studio?
-Well, I was in the studio with DJ Fresh, he’s so cool and very outgoing and funny but when it comes down to record and and write music etc, he’s all about his music like he’s very focus like he really gets in his zone, but we had some great times together as this was my first time meeting him he’s a very cool guy and Diplo, I never recorded with him in the studio but I will soon… but I met him down in Miami and it’s funny because he was like “I’m from florida as well” and I never knew that but we had some fun twitter exchange….
