I have Damian on there with Jungle, who are like a rock band. I'm trying to make all of these records with different people that you wouldn't otherwise expect. I've got Rampa from Keinemusic on there helping me produce a song with Leon Bridges. I've got Lil Yachty on a tech house record. It's showing that with dance music, there's no rules to it.”
