Rushmore returns to Superstore tomorrow to play Society Presents Robert Owens. Having been a previous guest at the launch of Banjee Boy Realness, and with his own night House Of Trax being the talk of the town, we thought it high time to catch up with the man himself and even get our mitts on an exclusive mix!
Are you named after the mountain or the movie?
Haha! Neither, I first learned to make music on Rushmore Road in Clapton.
What's the scariest tune you plan to play at the Halloween Society party on Thursday?
I've got an exclusive Icy Lake refix by a Night Slugs friend which is pretty spooky and also a special little edit of something I have done myself.
You've had some amazing guests at your own party House Of Trax. Who's been your favourite so far this year for whatever reason?
On the spot! It has been a great year for guests, but I would have to say MikeQ. He played our launch party back in January, which was special, and our most recent party too. He's great all round DJ, Producer and a great guy. He will be back for us next year too.
We also hear House Of Trax is expanding from a night into a record label- what's on the cards for the first few releases?
Ohh... news travels quick! We haven't really told anyone. Well our first vinyl release will be for end of November. That will be three tracks from myself. The second and third releases will be in the first half of next year. We can't reveal who they will be from, but some very interesting projects and remixes indeed. There's more than just the vinyl too!
And finally, tell us a bit about the exclusive mix you've made up…
Well, I thought of it as The Rushmore Superstore... so I went on a shopping spree with some of my favourite tracks of old and new. An appetizing minimix to whet the palate for this week’s party.
