Dubspot is a digital production school in New York and LA specializing in arming the next generation of producers with the tools they'll need to create incredible music. They caught up with Photek in SXSW this year to speak about his first music-making set-up, his advice to up-and-coming producers, and his DJ-Kicks mix.
Photek's masterful DJ-Kicks mix is out this week in North America, and is currently charting on the iTunes Electronic chart. He'll be hitting the road for a string of dates in the US to celebrate the release, including major electronic music festivals Together Boston, Symbiosis Fest, and the mighty DEMF. Having caught a taste in Austin, we're sure you won't want to miss the chance to see this man take to the decks!

Watching Photek in his studio is a bit like watching a master chef in the kitchen. We were lucky enough to drop in to his Los Angeles home base to chat about his massive DJ-Kicks mix, his first live show DJing with Peshay, and the inspiration behind the titles for some of the exclusive Photek tracks that appear on the mix. DJ-Kicks is out now everyone but the US, where it comes out on April 3rd.
