12 Weeks of Techno: Eyes and Ears on the Ground / Week 9 March 09, 2016 07:09

Last weekend saw Scuba joined in the Main Room of XOYO by Chris Liebing and Tallmen785. I've chatted with loads of people who went, and it sounded absolutely brilliant. As is the norm with the 12 Weeks of Techno residency, I ALWAYS interview a punter on the following Wednesday.

My first choice this week was the model, Anita Kaushik, who Tweeted enthusiastically about her night, but she didn't respond to my creepy, over-familiar request for an interview. I gave her over 48 hours to respond, and at the last minute (last night) I got into a panic and had a look on Twitter for someone else who went...

...Hugo is NOT a fucking model, but, in this instance, he'll do.

Here's the transcript from our online chat:

Q. What's your name and where do you come from?
A. Hi there. My name is Hugo. None of your business where I’m from.

Q. What clothes and eau de toilette did you wear for XOYO?
A. Mens clothes and Lynx Africa.

Q. Did you pull?
A. No, I’m afraid I didn't. I tried to smash into a blonde bird, but she was sober.

Q. Any good whistles being blown in the Main Room?
A. Would you rather have whistlers or camera phones in a club? is a question that should be as high up the cultural list of "would you rather" games as, "would you rather be ginger or bald?" No offence.

But yes, one heard some decent whistling in the Main Room.

Q. Tune of the night?

A. All of the Tallmen785 tunes by Tallmen785.

Q. Stone cold sober or absolutely fucking terminated?
A. T-1000 meets Wayne's World. Got the fear bigtime and left.

Q. Any funny anecdotes from the night?
A. No.

Q. What time did you leave the club?
A. Before the end.

Q. Will you be going along to any of the other Weeks of Techno?
A. Every week. I want my free G.

What a lovely young man! Please join me in wishing Hugo all the very best in every one of his future endeavours. I'm sure we're all rooting for him with regard to the promise Scuba made aboCONTENT REMOVED BY HOTFLUSH RECORDINGS LAWYERS.

I'll be back tomorrow with a brand new video blog.
