I wait four hours, go through it, ready to work at seven, work all day long for twelve hours, and get it taken off for an hours, go home and go to sleep, and do the same thing again.”

“You want to do something, you want to have the bravery to do something original. And there will always be people who are like, the classicists who are like, ‘No, but it’s got to have this.’ In life, there are people like that attached to every single thing that there is. These are the same people that are like, still playing vinyl.”
