For someone who estimates they take 200 flights a year jetting around the globe, it's no surprise to learn that Laidback Luke is shattered come the end of 2010. Not that he's complaining, mind. This year has been another stellar 12 months in the life of one of dance music's most popular DJs and producers.
"It's been amazing," he says. "Ibiza was my best season to date: It was a DJ dream coming true having my own billboards for the first time this year (for his Super You&Me nights). And the reaction to both 'Till Tonight' and 'Turbulence' was pleasing."
Having managed to keep up his kung fu ("It's a way of life") and complete an artist album ("We're just working out if it's a good idea to release it in the current environment"), his one dream for 2011 is to remix Nelly Furtado or Madonna.
"I'd love to get my hands on them," he laughs. "Their music, I mean! Justin Timberlake too. I'm concentrating a lot on remixes right now."
Oh yes, 2010 has been a good year for Laidback Luke.
