Nathan: Hah! I am not one to say whether my sets are best or not…after such an amazing year its hard to pick any moment that was greater than any other one…….but I am still thinking about my gig at Footwork in Toronto at the end of August, directly after my return from European summer when I played the beginning of the night to the end of the night…It was something I’ll never forget.

Yes, now that I am back in Toronto, I am working very hard in the studio…..working to finish EP’s for Desolat, Mood, Avotre, D-Floor and a single for Mar-T’s label, WOW Recordings…I also have something that Im working on which is quite different for me and a secret I will keep to myself until the time is right haha.
