Hey man ! I just have to say GREAT appearance at the s.u.n festival ! I came all the way from norway just to experience you live, and eventhough I can hardly recall any of it (it might just be that I was far up in the woods lying in my hammock) I have to thank you for being awesome and I hope you will keep on making such sweet and brainpoking (this is indeed a positive term) sounds in the future.
As for the question, do you still work with Simon and Raja on their shpongle stuff as a producer or anything like that?
Thank you, and I hope to see you soon!
I never did!
The whole "Ott produced Shpongle" thing is nonsense.
Shpongle produce Shpongle - that's what they do.
I compiled one album - i.e. edited the songs together to make the album flow - and played some percussion on a couple of others.
Oh, and I remixed '...Tea Daze'.
Simon and Raj are good friends of mine and if Simon ever asked me for a contribution I'd dig in, but our paths don't cross as much as they used to. Occasionally we discuss making a record together and it sounds like fun, and then we wistfully consider our touring schedules and the conversation tails off.
And we annoy each other in the studio because I'm always right and he won't admit it.
Do you smoke cigarettes? If so, what's your favorite brand?Ott responded on 08/20/2013 Next question
Hi Ott, after a long day's work there's nothing I enjoy more than a cold beer or 3, probably to the detriment of my work the next day… I'm curious as to when you gave up the booze, and why?
PS. I'm really enjoying reading this Q&A
