We're used to seeing you out and about, and everyone seems to know you. How did you break into the scene?
"When I was at NYU, I worked at record labels and was out almost every night at shows. I spent a lot of time at what was then a new bar called Lit, partying with rockstars because my bosses told me I had to — not a rough way to make some extra money in school.
“Well, I’m kind of retired from the nighttime scene — though, and I have no idea how, I’ve become hang-out-during-the-day friends with some fantastic DJs. So, whenever Nick Catchdubs (with or without Fools Gold), Jubilee, or out-of-town friends spin or something, I’m there.”
So what's your favorite moment from your storied nightlife?
“I’ve met more than my fair share of incredibly famous and incredibly talented people, and have been completely unfazed — except for the two glorious nights I spent with Grace Jones. I met her at an art event through one of my best friends — the brilliant, beautiful, Grammy-winning Estelle — after which a dozen of us wound up at a restaurant in the Lower East Side. She was seated next to me, and we totally hit it off!
So what are your recovery tips for those nights when you have a little too much fun?
“Maintaining a healthy body and a healthy mind can pretty much fix anything. I eat healthily, weightlift often, and I’ve never drank, smoked, or done drugs. I haven’t even had caffeine in almost two years, and, aside from the occasional Tylenol, I don’t take any medications.”
