Who are you most excited to see at Pitchfork this year?
Grimes, Hot Chip, Chromatics, Nicolaas Jar, AraabMuzik, Beach House, Purity Ring
What will you be spinning at Nellcote on Sunday?
A mixture of performers from all of the Pitchfork years plus friends. (Smile) I know this isn't very specific, but I mainly am focusing on the energy and vibe. Walking into Nellcote you already feel better about life, and I just want to add to that with upbeat hip music, that sets everyone off to have a killer day of music.
What is your favorite pitchfork performance or memory of all time?
Cut Copy's performance last year is at the top of my list. They brought such an amazing energy to their performance last year, especially for a Sunday night. I loved the lights that went with their show, and it was the first time I got to hear samplings from their album Zonoscope. Their live performance is so powerful and captivating, and has the unique ability of unifying the entire audience.
Who is your dream headliner lineup for Pitchfork?
Arcade Fire, the XX, Gossip, The 2 Bears
