In the beginning... God created the heaven, and the earth, and electronic music. Then, there was... well, as far as we're concerned, then there was Sasha and Digweed with what would become known as the first ever 'proper' DJ mix compilation! And if you're young (or, ahem, were there) you might not remember Digweed was the 1st British DJ to have a residency at a US club - the legendary Twilo in NYC, also with Sasha. Time passed, the world turned, and both Sasha and Digweed became legends in their own right. Along the way, Digweed founded Bedrock Records, remixed everyone under the sun worth remixing, and with his weekly Transitions radio show on Kiss 100, his influence on electronic music continues to be lengthy and profound.

And let us not forget the beer and porn. Slip into your jim jams and join us for a little unedited e-chat with Mr. John Digweed!

Hi John! Thanks for doing this interview for Raves.com and DJfix.com. Since interviews by email can be a little faceless... can you describe to me where you are sitting as you answer the questions, and maybe what kind of mood you’re in (or even just the kind of shoes you’re wearing)?

I am in a good mood sitting in my slippers and jim jams

What have you been doing all day before this?

Drinking beer and watching porn

Let’s talk about Transitions Vol. 2.... has how you select and mix the tracks for your compilations changed over the years?

Yes I am constantly striving to find new tracks to keep my albums fresh. I always put a lot of work and research into every album I do and this is no different.

That's funny, I was just going to ask if was anything you did differently when compiling Transitions 2?

It still takes about 2 months to put these albums together I spent a lot of time editing each track and making sure that the track listing was perfect and the cd flows as a whole

What kind of hardware/software setup did you use?

Allen and heath x 92 / CDJ’s and mac g5 computer albeton software

Where did you get most of (or some of) the tracks you chose?

All over the world different record shops / producers. As I said before the whole process takes months to put together so I let a lot of producers etc know when I am compiling the next cd.

You’ve probably been asked every possible interview question at least twice... some I’m imagining a lot more than that? What would be one question you’d be happy never have to answer again?

I think like anything you get out what you put into something ­ a lot of magazines just ask the same questions to everybody. that’s just lazy the web is out there do some research on your subject then ask him some questions

Now I feel like the pressure is on!! Let's see... your latest press release says you are touring with “indie-dance darlings MSTRKRFT” -- how’d you end up with them as your tour partners?

My management got into talks when the tour was being put together and it seemed like a good idea. The response has been great to find out more on this www.diamondstour.com

Your March Diamonds 07 tour schedule is insane!! A different city almost every day. Are you in a tour bus or flying? How will you keep from going insane (or passing out from exhaustion) during all those stops?

On the tour bus it is very important too try and eat heathily get plenty of sleep each night. If this fails start drinking beer and watch porn

If someone had a track they produced that they thought would be perfect in a Digweed set, how would be the best way (or is there a way) to get it to your ears?

Through my website www.johndigweed.com

Is there anything else you’d like to say to all your fans that will be reading this?

Thanks for the support over the years, I hope you all like the new cd and looking forward to hitting the road in march

Thanks John!! Hope to see you in LA soon!

For now you can catch him online...
