The Not So Serious Session 4 with Jordan Peak

the not so serious sessions Schooled in the art of groove long before he started making music himself, Jordan Peak fits bang into that “a childhood filled with music” category. Raised around wax and the early days of house music, the young DJ and producer  has been releasing his own slant on low slung house since 2009. Infusing gritty analogue depth with the forward thinking sounds of today, Jordan’s productions are seen on the catalogue shelves of labels such as One Records, Raum...Musik, Tsuba  and more recently Nicholas’s vinyl only imprint House Sound. After being named ‘one to watch’ on Radio 1’s ‘Introducing’ section of the Essential Selection in 2011, that’s exactly what we’ve been doing  at MEOKO (or listening to be precise) and we too are mighty taken with Monsieur Peak. So much so, that we asked him to talk some jibber jabber for the 4th Not So Serious Session.

If I only had 24 hours left on Earth...


...I'd try and have as much fun as (ill)legally possible! I mean if there's going to be some 'The Day After Tomorrow' or '2012' type shit that happens, touch wood it never does but if for some reason you find out that the world as we know it is coming to an end your going want to go out with a bang aren't you? Saying that it probably depends what day of the week it is, I mean if it's been a long weekend of gigs, parties and afters etc then you get home and find out that you've only got so long to live then my ambitions and lack of energy would probably stretch to watching the entire series of 'The Sopranos' or 'Fringe' back to back.

The debate about vinyl and digital is...


...still going on and still as silly as ever. Personally I play both formats when I DJ, after all I'm sure as long as your audience is on the dance floor having a good time then I don't think anyone really cares whether the DJ is mixing with wax or WAV's. In fact it’s so stupid I’d prefer you to ask me a more relevant question such as "Who's a better person, someone that's right or left handed?" or "Are vegetarians or meat eater’s better lovers?"

If I could have a pie and a pint with anyone it would be...


...Megan Fox, actually that's a bit too obvious and I don't think she'd probably be into a steak and kidney based pastry dish, doesn't really look like she enjoys a nice meaty meal does she? Actually to be honest I don't get to see a lot of my close friends as much as I'd like to so it would be nice to have a good old catch up down the boozer with them. There would also have to be pork scratchings and a pool table involved.

The most atrocious set I've ever heard...


...I went to an outdoor rave a few years ago and heard this guy playing Breakcore, have you heard of this genre? I hope you haven't, you don't want to. Imagine something as horrendous as the sound of finger nails scratching a chalkboard, multiply this by a million to the power of four and you still haven't even come close to how bad it actually is. I'm a very open person when it comes to music, I listen to loads of stuff and appreciate there is good and bad of everything except when it comes to Breakcore, there is only shit

You'd never know it but I'm really good at...


...getting in peoples way. I'm only a small person, I don't take up that much room but for some reason I'm forever blocking up public transport and always being asked to move over. It's my 6th sense, my special power. I'd be the most boring super hero ever, there definitely won't be a bidding war between Warner Brothers and Miramax on the rights to my movie 'The Obstructor'. Even the title sounds dull.   

Love...
