Sander Kleinenberg

Heard any good rumours lately?
That I had been arrested on New Yorks Time Square….naked, holding a ‘save the world’ sign. The truth is I did not hold a sign at all.
What’s the best night out you’ve ever had?
I would have to say that this last NYE was pretty close to perfection…started on the plane from London to Toronto with a lovely BA crew and plenty of bubbly… Did the gig in Toronto from 1200/0300 which rocked!
Then on to Montreal in a small jet with 50 mph winds (thank god for Xanax), played from 0600/0900 in the Bell Centre…a stadium with10.000 people going nuts, the nicest big room production I have ever seen! slept and woke up to fly to NY to do Crobar I was a bit afraid about it being the 1st of Jan, people might have stayed in….but to my pleasant surprise 3000 people showed up. I couldn’t think of a better way to start 2005.
What’s your favourite club?
Crobar in NY is doing it for me at the moment…my monthly ‘Everybody’ residency started this month, and using the DVJ-X1 on those nights is a dream come true… What’s your favourite record of all time?

What’s your dream?
What the fuck is this? Where did you get these questions? Ohh well let’s see…I’m in New York..this giant pet rat I have called Wilfred comes crawling on to me, he’s been a great friend for many years and I think he’s just out to play, but to my surprise he comes bitching about how I have not been taking his needs seriously, a really long story follows about a rats life and how difficult it is to be a giant rat in a world like today. I cant take this shit and before I can tell him how I feel, I wake up…ive been trying without luck to find out what this dream means..
