"Look, not everyone is going to like the record, are they? That's understandable. You have a lot of purists that don't want you to mix guitars with electronic music, but I don't care, really. Dance purists don't like anything that's slightly commercial, or anything that's away from the norm, and this is.” (San Bernadino County Sun)

“So much guys have so much- too much- while so many have nothing at all. We don’t feel like it is right, because it don’t take a guy a hundred million dollars to keep him satisfied. Everybody have to live. You have to share. I don’t care if it sounds political or whatever it is, but people have to share.” (Observer)

With that kind of hedonism, you need to be with people who love you; without that you’re lost.” (Sunday Times)

“They might say its “dance” or it’s “electro” but it’s just what I like! It started off as a busman’s holiday this time around, but it’s become something on which I’ve found myself. I was just doing my YTS (youth training scheme) up till now.” (EMI press release)
