Having just finished his soundtrack duties for Jeremy Scott's Autumn Winter 2012 show, we sat down with DJ Jonny Makeup to get the lowdown on the process and inspiration behind the music. As seen in these images, a Jeremy Scott show is always about fun - loud colours, daring cuts and lots of make up - so the music has to mirror the designs and Scott's attitude for the season...

It goes so well with the collection, there's a lot of OMG's and LOL's and all that stuff

"The song is one that my friend Amanda Blank wrote for me. It goes so well with the collection, there's a lot of OMG's and LOL's and all that stuff. Amanda gave me the demo, which was produced by Eli Escobar and I was like 'oh my god I love this song' and she was like it was basically written for you, you have to take it. I played it for Jeremy and he said this is so good for my collection, we should loop it for the online feed.

I'm working on an EP and a lot of other things but I'm really excited to perform again and it was awesome that Jeremy helped me out by letting so many people tune in to listen to this

Jeremy has been using Michel's runway mixes for years, so it was awesome that this season he kept Michel's mix for the live show and debuted my song online. I used to be in this gay rap band; we were super underground and a lot of my friends have been wanting me to perform again – Jeremy, JD Samson and Amanda Blank all kind of pushed me to do this, which is amazing. I'm working on an EP and a lot of other things but I'm really excited to perform again."
