      So, as the dust has settled on our recent Attic event headlined by Laurence Guy—our fourth instalment—I am making available my recorded set from the evening.
      I opened up shop for the first hour on this occasion, so, accordingly; this is very much a lower, slower effort—105 BPM upwards—though, in doing so, I did my best to retain a lot of the melodic elements that make up our "Attic sound".
      I really enjoyed putting this one together and kicking off the night in a method that I saw fit—and what an evening it turned out to be!
      I hope you enjoy this one, all the same.
      Comments and feedback—and if you really enjoy it, bookings—are always welcome!
      'till next time!

      DJ/Producer Dennis White aka Latroit won a Grammy for his remix of Depeche Mode’s track ‘You Move’ at this year’s 60th Grammy Awards, at Madison Square Gardens, New York.
      His current release ‘Feather’ with Lliam Taylor & Aussie vocalist Charlz is currently being played on radio across Australia.
      When Ozclubbers spoke to Latroit, he had just returned home to LA from New York and was decompressing from an intense week. He talks about the surrealness of winning a Grammy and how he came to work on the Depeche Mode classic “You Move”.
      How did you come to work with Depeche Mode?
      I was approached to remix the song and when I heard the vocal I like the way you move I just thought it was such a great vocal for a dance remix. I couldn’t get it out of my head and I had the entire remix done in my brain pretty quickly after hearing the vocal.
      It was really natural, it came to me really quickly. Maybe just one day of prep. It has taken me 5 or 6 days previously to do a remix, but that is usually when I was overthinking things. Sometimes it’s just best to embrace the notion that your first idea is your best idea”.
      You recently worked with Aussie vocalist Charlz on the track Feather. Can you tell us about how you and Charlz linked up?
      I have been a fan of hers for a long time, I was familiar with her voice, we were linked up by a friend of mine. Charlz is the greatest undiscovered talent in the world, she’s my favourite vocalist, I love her work on Feather and I’m excited to see how her career evolves.
      What advice would you give up and coming producers given the amount of music being released on a weekly basis (estimated 30,000 tracks on Beatport).
      My advice is always the same for up and coming producers. Listen to what everyone else is doing, and then do the total opposite. Find a way to stand out from the crowd because you are far more likely to be ignored doing what everyone else is doing, than you are if you’re doing something that’s different and unique.
      So, my two bits of advice are always the same, be good at your craft, be good! Put in the time, don’t fuck around on twitter and Instagram so much, get in there and be good at your craft. Just be conscious of doing something that’s unique that is natural to you. It’s so tempting when you hear something popular to want to do something that will fit but be unique.
      How long does it take you to make professional tracks?
      Sometimes a day but I’ve worked on songs for 6 months, if I’m not feeling it, I’ll shelf it and come back to it. There are songs I’ve let lay around for a few years. But try to find a balance and move on.
      What's your favourite synth?
      I have a Roland Juno 6 that I brought in 84’. It’s my favourite synth because I saved up to buy it. It was the first thing I played around with and that’s how I fell in love with electronic music. I still have it in my studio and I use it in some of my songs.
      What’s it like winning a Grammy? – It’s a surreal experience at first. You’re asked - what’s it feel like when you hear your name? Well it doesn’t feel like anything, but your like, I heard my name and I was like oh shit! I didn’t prepare a speech because I wasn’t going to win this thing. So I had like about 15 seconds between this seat and that stage to figure out what the hell I’m going do in front of a room full of people. I really went straight to focusing on that and then there’s a bunch of stuff that happens backstage after that. There isn’t really a lot of time for it to sink in. Dave Chappelle won best comedy album and his speech summed it up perfectly, he said - I’d like to thank my wife, my dad etc etc and at the end he says “see you on Monday” and that’s exactly what it’s like. You arrive home and your back to taking out the garbage and doing your laundry.
