'TRY OUTS FOR THE HUMAN RACE', ARMS US WITH AN INTERESTING READ ALONG THE WAY.
Firstly we would like to say a huge thank you for supplying us with an outstanding mix. Tell us a little bit about it?
Sure. There was no great plan to it. Just went with the flow. Started slow and upped the bpm’s as we took flight on our cosmic mission. The Mars theme you presented me gave me some guidance. Lot’s of new and promo action in there, hope you like it.
You also go by the name Haules Baules, can you tell our readers more about your alias name?
Haules Baules is a gypsy slang term. It’s a kind of greeting to the absurd. I used to hear my gypsy neighbour exclaim it many a time when they were partying all night when I lived in Bucharest, Romania.
Haules Baules is actually the name of my record label which I launched whilst living in Bucharest in about 2011. It was vinyl only but I recently stuck the back catalogue up on Bandcamp in digital formats as I’ve been back in the studio and wanted to get the page established before releasing some new music.
Old but gold - We recently received a rare copy of your “Creeper” EP. Two cracking mixes on there. What’s the story behind it?
Well, “Walk The Night” has always been a big track for me when playing out but as with most edits I wanted to change it up a bit. The lyrics are super sleazy and dark and I wanted to emphasise that feeling more. Stripped out the cheese, added this horror synth part and beefed up the drums. Sean had stayed over in Bucharest a bit before and we had worked on some tracks together so when I sent him Creeper he offered to remix it. Got to give big thanks to him for that as well as caning the hell out of it at ALFOS.

Lets pretend and fast forward to the year 2033, and NASA announces they are selecting an elite few to be the first of mankind to touch down on Mars. Based on your resounding intelligence, witty humour, skills and good looks - You have been chosen! Question is, would you accept a one way ticket?
The way we’re going Earth in 2033 will be f*cked, so sure, take me to Mars.
You are the chosen Commander! Theres a big old space ship waiting to be named..... What are you going to call her?
Tryouts 01” in homage to our illicit warehouse parties “Tryouts For The Human Race” in which our own crew of intelligent, witty, skilled and extremely good looking candidates audition for a place to represent us all by dancing like loons to a wonky soundtrack until past 6 on a Sunday morning.
Tricky one but you have to make the decision... If you can take anyone – past or present – fact or fiction - What 3 space cadets are you going to take with you on your adventure of a lifetime?
Probably my wife and a couple of close friends you don’t know, but that’s not very reader friendly, so for artistic purposes I’d take Hunter S Thompson, Malcolm Mclaren and Cindy Sherman.
Crew and spaceship ready, the final countdown has begun. Now you have just one day left on Earth ........what would you do?
Visit the mushroom juice man.
It takes 7 months for you and your teams quest to Mars. 7 months! You are allowed a choice of 5 records to play on the Inflight Space Entertainment system– which belters do you take with you?

You’ve made it! Now time to make things like home... What Netflix series would you choose to watch?
Norsemen on Netflix is hilarious. That’s my current favourite.
A new planet needs new rules and regulations. You can write one law on planet Mars that everyone has to obey by, what law would you put in place and why?
Don’t ask the DJ for anything “more dancey”. DJ requests illegal and punishable by hanging. :)
Things have got a little hairy, you are in a sticky situation and stood face to face with a 3 eyed,15ft neon green Alien and about to get into a bust up! What song comes on as as your chosen kick ass sound track.
Interviews - You Can (Turn Around)
Finally, you are allowed one phone call back to Earth, who do you call?
Describe a heart warming, skin tingling, goosey memorable moment from your musical journey so far?
A few years ago I was back at some random flat for an after party in Edinburgh. I didn't know anyone there but they had shelves full of records and some decks so I asked if I could play. After getting the nod I started looking through the racks and found my first ever record release from 1995 which was released under the name "Bumpy Capers" which was the club I ran at Plastic People back in the 90's when it was on Oxford Street. I pulled it out and asked the host how he came to have it (it was a pretty limited release). He went on to tell me that when he was 18 years old him and his mates caught the train to London and ended up at a club on Oxford Street where he had his first E and the best night of his life and that his life changed forever after that experience. The look on his face when I told him that was my club night was something i'll never forget. Some coincidence.
If you can name anything, what is your best ever / worse ever musical purchase?
My worst musical purchases usually involve purchasing overpriced VG+ records on Discogs that are anything but.
Tell us something we don't know…
A Guy Called Gerald's seminal hit "Voodoo Ray" gets its vocal samples from a 1976 Peter Cook and Dudley Moore comedy sketch.

Oops. I need to hide a body. Any ideas?
Don't try and drag me into your sordid recreational activities!
Would you rather go to a super Club, House party. Local boozer or small get together with 4 or 5 close friends over dinner at home?
Would miss the super club event and head straight for the boozer followed by house party then an after party with 4-5 mates.
And Lastly, we all like a good affirmation at TDDUD HQ……. What is your life’s Mantra?
If it ain't broke, break it.
