Following his huge hit single 'Chicago' last year, newcomer Après is on the up. His latest single 'Prophet' has gained hype from Radio 1 selector Annie Mac, and is set to drop next Friday 29th January via on point house imprint, Love & Other.
Off the back of his stellar new single, DJ Mag thought it high time to catch up with Après for a Fresh Kicks quiz, plus an exclusive mix especially for DJ Mag readers. Listen to the mix and check out our chat below.
Last record you bought?
"Detroit Swindle 'Figure of Speech'. I finally bought a turntable over the Christmas break and this was a must get for me straight away."
Last film you saw?
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 10/10 recommendation if you’re one of the few people left that haven’t seen it."
Last club you visited?
"EGG LDN. I played there just before Christmas for the first time and had a wicked night playing with Billon & Mike Mago."
Last meal you ate?
"Homemade Chinese chicken noodle soup with extra Sriracha."
Last car you drove?
"My brother’s Land Rover Defender although I’m in the process of finding a new car for myself."
Last album you listened to in full?
"Caribou 'Our Love'. I love this album and it’s one that I can come back to over and over without skipping over any tracks. Perfect for an hours drive."
Last mix you downloaded?
"Low Steppa’s Minirig MixTape. His mixes are always on point and have become a bit of a source for finding new music to play out in my own sets."
Last person you played back-to-back with?
"XY Constant. I went to uni in his hometown of Falmouth, Cornwall so we both went back down for a B2B set at The Union late last year. He’s always a good laugh to play with and our sets seem to work well together."
Last vinyl you spun?
"Again, this would have to be Detroit Swindle 'Figure of Speech'. I’m just starting to get to grips with mixing vinyl but have set myself the challenge to bring vinyl into my sets by the summertime this year — so it’s all hands on deck (literally) to get comfortable with it."
Last country you visited?
"Ibiza back in the summer last year but I’m off to the Alps later this month and have some exciting gigs abroad lined up over the next few months."
Last dream you remember?
"I wish I could remember my dreams... I even have a dream dictionary that tells you what they mean but I just never seem to remember them!"
