With a forthcoming release on Food Music, a busy autumn of gigs and their next London show at the Bondax & Friends party, here’s a little interview with Toucán. On top of that they’ve recorded a mix for the LWE mix series so you can see what they are about.
Hey Toucán. Thanks for taking the time to talk to LWE – what have you been up to? Thanks for having us! We’ve been super busy with all things music, playing lots of gigs and spending the rest of our time in the studio together, really putting our heads down at the moment and giving Toucán everything we’ve got.
If you could describe your sound in 3 words what would you say? Bassy, Rollin, Deep
What have been the biggest influences on your DJing style? I wouldn’t say we have anyone that influences us solely we just do what we do, we’ve watched DJs like EZ, Cause& Affect, Zinc and literally been like ‘Woah!’ ..But our style is different, we like to keep things smooth and rollin’ on the dance floor, we pick up tips and tricks as we go.
Can you tell us about any forthcoming releases or other projects you are playing on? We’ve been working on quite a few bits for a while now and we’ve got a track signed to the Food DNA LP which will be coming out soon, were pretty excited about that. We’ve also got some great gigs coming up this weekend we’re in Reading, London & Kent!
Top 5 tracks you’re playing out at the moment.
No Panties – Kill Frenzy Overtime (Rare Candys 1,998 Reasons for Bass Mix) –
Fabio Lendrum All The Lights Are Low. Lyon (Reset Safari Remix) –
LeSonic Shaman (Tim Cullen Remix) –
My Digital Enemy Need A Friend (Original Mix) Calippo
Tell us something people might not know about you?
We once went on a 2 week holiday to Thailand together and the day before our flight home we decided not to leave, we quit our jobs and dropped everything to stay there, we were very close to not ever coming back to England at all. Spontaneous decisions are the best ones!
