WL: Outside of electronic artists, who would be your dream collaboration?
SOE: Joanna Newsom.
WL: You've managed to avoid being pigeon-holed genre-wise when it comes to your productions. Who/what inspires you to be so musically diverse?
SOE: I am too restless to stay in one place, always wanted to try new things.
WL: What are your thoughts on the "America is killing dance music" discussion?
SOE: I cant relate to that really. I´m having the best of times touring the states, the crowds are in general very up for new sounds.
WL: With many talented producers hailing from Sweden, it's automatic to assume that the dance music scene is thriving there. What is it really like?
SOE: Its cold and lots of snow. I guess that keeps us on our toes production-wise.
WL: Any up and coming producers to look out for?
SOE: DJ Carli and Tom Starr.
WL: You've had multiple releases this year, including your remix for Miike Snow, a collaboration with Crookers & Carli, and a handful of your own originals. You've also just embarked on your Summer tour in the U.S. What else is in store for you this year?
SOE: My remix for Kylie´s Timebomb was just released, and next is a release on Fool´s Gold. Got a brand new remix of "I love it" with Icona Pop and loads of stuff coming this fall. very excited about it all at the moment.
WL: We're excited to have you back at Avalon. What can we expect from your set at Control?
SOE: I´m stoked to be back, I´m gonna bring energy and fun to the party. Roadtesting a lot of new music too..
