DJTODJ – YOUNG MARCO & HUNEE INTERVIEW EACH OTHer
Continuing the series of DJ to DJ where we ask two of our favourite Discos Jockos to interview each other up steps Young Marco and Hunee ahead of this year's Farr Festival.
Hunee is a good eater. He comes from a grey and boring city, where heavy industrialization and green forests go hand in hand. Now being a Berlin resident for almost ten years he eats bumpin disco for breakfast, heats up deep jackin music for lunch and slows it soulfully down for dinner. Young Marco has been on the forefront of Amsterdam's bustling underground scene for nearly a decade. Coming up through several now infamous residencies, he's released records on Rush Hour and Lovefingers ESP Institute where he continues to craft his house filled with broken drum computers and uncool 90s new-age synthesizers. Not sure if he's a good eater…

Young Marco: What's so great about LA anyway?
Hunee: Endless Summer!

H: A mouse trapped in a hole.
YM: Who is your favourite scientist?

H: Back to the future. I am glad of all the benefits of our time and look forward to a bright and challenging future.

Hunee: What mediocre superpower would you like to possess?
Young Marco: Telepathic internet
