The architect of Singapore’s nightlife and the godfather of Singapore’s dance music scene, Godwin P, delivers a winner through a potent mixed bag of tech house, techno and house, intent on keeping the head bobbing and the dance floor moving.
We interrogate him a little here:
What are you up to?
Keeping myself busy with club-based projects locally and internationally.
A lot of djs name you as a major influence. Where do you see dance music is heading?
Really? I’m honoured :) It’s been heading into some strange sectors lately but I do believe that it’s a cycle and the good stuff usually comes back which it will soon.
What makes a great gig?
People, Sound systems and a great venue.
Out of the tunes you have, which one ‘never fails’ ?
Flood by Shapeshifter
What’s the first record you bought?
The Jets – Rock it to you. That was yonks back!!!
What’s the idea behind this mix?
It’s basically a texture mix of tech and tech house tunes that I’m digging that are ranging from 125bpm to 128bpm. If you like soundscapes and funky basslines then you’ll enjoy it. Listen and you will understand.
