Dance? No. I mean the music. That’s what I’m looking for. (I try a couple of other words) I’ll say something with my voice like “Oh” and there’s always room.
We’re also a group comprised of guys like myself who grew up together, who know each other, who got involved together in certain clubs and things. And for me, that’s the thing. The most important part is that we all have been there, in the same clubs together, and we’ve heard the same songs at the same time.
So it should be a seamless transition to the new music.

I didn’t even know the artist on the records…and he came out with music that was similar to mine but was missing some elements. I don’t feel the pressure as much anymore. But it’s also important, so I like how you do that, you show us.
I would say that the music does also have an element of surprise. Like, if people want to know more about it, that’s great. And it has to do with something in the sound. I feel that the sound now has a slightly darker, more
