GN: How did your collaboration with DNB superhero John B. come about on that durrrrty track from his In Transit album, "Take Me Home"?
John B and I have been friends for years, ever since we played the world's worst rave together in Atlanta when we were 19 years old. He had been wanting to do a tune with some dirty rapping on it and asked me if I thought I could do it, since I have kind of an L.A. Valley Girl accent. When I was in London in 2003, I was at his house, we drank a few Pimm's Cups, and I wrote and recorded the lyrics to "Take Me Home" in about two hours. I was really happy and surprised at how many people ended up playing it, and afterwards all the drum & bass fan dudes thought I was a dirty varmint, which was funny.
