During his decade-plus stint living in New Zealand, tropical techno producer Recloose drew together musicians like Dallas Tamaira, Lisa Tomlins and Myele Manzana around his sound, in turn allowing local influences to infuse his Motor City production.
Recloose is now Stateside once again, holding down a gang of new responsibilities in New York City: juggling new fatherhood, DJing, and managing New Zealand software company Serato’s East Coast operations.
“You definitely do feel like a ping pong ball out here with everything that’s going on. I mean, I’m sure people are aware of how hyperactive the city is, but you can mentally prepare but I don’t think there’s anything you can really do to be fully ready for it until you’re in the thick of it.”
After a three-year absence, Recloose has also deliveried a new EP, Honey Rocks, released on Will Saul’s Aus Music label. The production polymath talks to Sam Wicks about living life on NY time.
