Tranzfusion: There seems to be a cold, sometimes melancholy aspect to the music on Bedrock Breaks. Is this something that's inherent in breakbeat at the moment-
Mr Hyper: Probably stuff that I like! Not throughout the scene but there is a more mature (production wise) sound emerging in some areas.
Tranzfusion: Are there any tracks you think have been overplayed in clubs over the past couple of months-
Mr Hyper: Now that 'Dooms Night's finally f**ked off, I guess it's just Plump Dj's records that you hear in everyone's set. Doesn't matter though, they're all great records which should pass the test of time anyway. Apart from that, a lot of people may say that our Addicted To Bass mix has been overplayed but it's one of mine so I don't really mind at all and you can bet your life I'll be playing it.
Tranzfusion: What's your favourite tune at the moment-
Mr Hyper: Loads! 'Flying' by Fatliners, 'Nothing' remix by PMT, 'Close Yer Eyes' by Dan F and JP Oliver, Terminalhead's 'Breaking Rules' and 'Karma Sammy' by Stir Fry.
Tranzfusion: Do you do non-breakbeat sets-
Mr Hyper: Nope, the world doesn't need too many more House DJ's. I like spinning more downtempo sets on occasion though and there are records from all scenes that I love.
Tranzfusion: Do you think the "barriers" which exist between the electronic-dance-music genres will every be completely erased- Would this be a good thing-
Mr Hyper: Doubtful, and people like to belong to a SCENE so probably would be good and bad in equal proportions.
Tranzfusion: How did you hook up with Bedrock to do this compilation (Bedrock Breaks)-
Mr Hyper: I wanted to leave Distinctive after my two Y3K compilations and approached someone who worked with Bedrock and put the idea to them. They liked it and I spoke to John at Bedrock and he was really up for it!
Tranzfusion: Were there any tracks that would wanted but didn't get-
Mr Hyper: Yes, Dr Motte & Westbams 'Sunshine' - an excellent Electro cut which has been in my box for two years or more.
Tranzfusion: Are you planning to work with Bedrock in the future-
Mr Hyper: I'm signed for two more compilations so I hope so. On top of this the room at the Bedrock club is still going strongly.
Tranzfusion: How did you get roped in to the Two Tribes extravaganza-
Mr Hyper: An agent picked me up to do it.
Tranzfusion: Have you travelled much outside the UK- Australia at all-
Mr Hyper: I spend a lot of America and Europe. I was in the States for the whole of January and played Rome last week, am in Amsterdam this w/end and come to NZ on Tuesday. It will be my first time in Oz and I can't wait, I'm very excited!
Tranzfusion: Are crowds different off your own home turf-
Mr Hyper: Yes, you never know what you are going to get but that's half the challenge.
Tranzfusion: What are you working on (production-wise) at the moment-
Mr Hyper: Just finished a remix for Mark Shimmon which I'm very pleased with, done a mix for DJ Infiniti from the States and have one more to do before getting stuck into some new material with a new single for Whole 9 Yards coming soon.
Tranzfusion: When can we expect more Dj Hyper product-
