EI: First of all, I'd like to say thank you for taking the time for this interview. How are you doing today?

FP: Pretty good thanks, just had some poutine in Montreal.

EI: How would you describe your sound?

FP: Epic.

EI: I went to your show at the Royal Oak Music Theater with Doctor P a couple years ago. It was one of the best shows I've ever been to. Do you have a show that you remember as your favorite?

FP: Ah thanks! I had a really great time playing Red Rocks in denver, It's just a legendary venue and was an honour to play there. Being honest I just love the opportunity to play music wherever it is!

EI: What artists/songs are you listening to now?

FP: Right now, I'm listening to DJ Snake. Generally I'm pretty hyped up for the new Strokes album.

EI: Are there any artists that inspired you to start making music?

FP: I think in electronic music it has to be The Prodigy. Their music set such a precedent for the direction of everything that has been happening over the past few years.

EI: Where do you find the inspiration for your songs?

FP: Wherever I can, there are no rules.

EI: Do you have a favorite sound that you use in your productions?

FP: I love building chords using weird sounds to create a wall, pretty much how I write a lot of my music.

EI: Do you have a dream collaboration, and if yes, who with?

FP: Probably Julian Casablancas from The Strokes.

EI: How has the electronic music scene changed, in your opinion, considering the rise in popularity electronic music has recently received?

FP: I think it's become a whole lot more interesting. It's popularity has drawn attention and interest from all sorts of different places. I never thought I would have heard a Muse and Nero tune but it happened!

EI: Thank you again for taking the time to do this interview. I wish you all the best in the future.
