A big part of making music is the discovery aspect, is the surprise aspect. That's why I think I'll always love sampling.

The weirdest time is when I'm having to explain myself all day to journalists, and then I don't perform, so there's no release, just a lot of self-consciousness. Then what do you do with that at the end of the day? How do you release your brain from talking about yourself all day?
