If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be: 
I would choose to stop all superheroes. As human beings, we're all of equal importance on this planet.
Should you play to the crowd or for yourself: 
For me, I have a 100% clear idea of what I want to play, but it always comes down to the interaction with the audience as to what the gig will be like in the end.
What does EDM mean to you: 
Err, Electronic Dance Music!
Should celebrities be DJs: 
It's really down to the individual's choice and not down to me to judge what people are doing or not doing.
Have you ever been thrown off the decks: 
Yes, I have. When I was much younger. After one particularly long bedroom session I fell asleep across the turntables. My mother was unable to clean around me, so she picked me up and threw me off. She still reminds me of this.
Are you a DJ if you don't beat match: 
There are different technologies to beat-mixing these days, so it'd be difficult to answer that very clearly. Instinctively, though, I'm going to say 'yes'.
Where's the next dance music capital: 
Uttoxeter. Maybe.
