"I'm wearing an Adidas sweat-suit. I have to pay my full respect to the old skool. Adidas has always been an influential brand for us house heads in New York. I've been wearing Adidas since the beginning of the 80's and I'll still be wearing Adidas when I'm 70."
What are your favorite labels/designers and why?
"Sean John is my favorite because their jeans are very comfortable and stylish. For you dudes in the UK, Sean John is P.Diddy's fashion label with their store on 5th Ave New York. I also really like Akademiks because I love the old-school styling."
"The Adidas store in SoHo is my favorite because they have a lot of variety. But I spend a lot of time in Covent Garden in London and 5th Ave in New York. I still buy a lot of trainers especially the Nike air max high tops. The Nike store in New York and Oxford St are awesome, but now you can get the same ranges all over the world at the same time so it's not so exclusive anymore!"
How do you like to shop?
"I don't have a massive amount of time but when I travel I shop during the day as well as hanging out in cafe and bars. If I see something I like I buy it."
Do you have a sport that you're into?
"Basketball because it constantly keeps you athletic throughout the game, no matter what. The fashion and style that goes with basketball suits me, baggy and loose and that's the way I like to roll."
Most treasured item
"I'd have to say my cars. I won't list them because I don't want the IRS to find out."
What are you up to?
"After the 'Get Down' single comes out, I'm going to focus on finishing the Todd Terry All-Stars album. Hopefully it'll be out by June."
