Aaron Sigmon is one of America’s finest: headlining events, slaving away in the studio to produce breaks monsters, or collaborating alongside transatlantic legends like DJ Fixx, Keith MacKenzie and DJ Icey.
He’s been in Miami this week, laying down his floor thumping thing at WMC (where you’d also expect to see the likes of DJ Fresh, Paul Oakenfold and a million or so others), but he’s found enough time to answer some of life's biggest questions, exclusively for Funk and Filth.
Check out what Aaron has to say below, and download his free WMC 2012 Mixtape, which includes bangers from Deekline, Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia, Figure and some of his own remixes, it’s pretty special.
You get to DJ all over the place, to crowds of all sizes. What’s your favourite venue or event to play, and what makes it so special?
“Future Sound of Breaks” at WMC is my favorite event to play! I’ve played it every year since 2006 (with exception of 2010 when I took a break from dj’ing), and that event gets bigger and better every year!
What’s the one tune that you always have in your back pocket, ready to drop into a set to lift the roof?
Keith Mackenzie’s “Sporty-O vs R3hab - Guestlist Mashup” gets the crowd going every time! A couple others would have to be my Bass Mix of Calvin Harris’s “Awooga” and my ReRub of DJ Fresh’s “Louder”.
You can do a back-to-back set with any DJ in the world. Who would you pick?
I’ve always loved opening up for DJ Icey, but I would absolutely love to open for Krafty Kuts! Krafty is an amazing DJ, and I had the pleasure of seeing him perform twice this past week at WMC.
What else is on the cards for Mr Aaron Sigmon in 2012? What can we expect to hear and where can we expect to see you? Planning any trips to Europe or the UK?
I have some new original house & breaks tunes I’m about to release, as well as more free rubs, edits, and mashups! I have several upcoming dates here in the states with John B, Deekline, and Baby Anne, as well as my monthly residencies. No overseas trips planned at the moment...Any promoters interested?
A big question now . . . not musically related but very very important! Footwear. What’s the coolest pair in your footlocker at the moment?
I’m a big fan of the slip-on DC’s, as well as the Puma Roma’s…I think I own almost every color stripe they make lol.
And finally . . . Funk or Filth . . . . musically which way are you feeling right now?
Both! My roots will always be funky, but I’m a big fan of the Filth and try to incorporate both into my music!
