MM: What are your non-musical influences?
NVOY: Our lives in London influence us, how we feel when we’re out and the emotions that we want our music to express. When we’re making tracks we think a lot about how a person will react to on a dancefloor or listening to it at home. We want people to feel something, and some connection with the music.

MM: What are your musical influences?
NVOY: We listen to a lot of hip hop/rap, future beats, grime, and leftfield electronica. We bring in sounds and ideas from these genres and pull them into our style, which is more centred around house music. It’s fun to draw on a lot of influences which aren’t directly like ourselves.

MM: Describe briefly the music scene where you live
NVOY: We live in London, grime is blowing up internationally right now coming from here. There’s a bit of everything in this city though, we like house/techno so we can have a little dance.
