Seth Troxler Recommends

The enigma of a DJ gives us his top picks before he plays the Red Dot Relief party this week with Jamie Jones and one other part of Visionquest

This Thursday, Red Dot Relief will be bidding the music community to raise money and awareness for the disaster in Japan. Headlined by one of the most lauded DJs of our time, Seth Troxler, fellow Visionquest-er Ryan Crosson, and Hot Natured's Jamie Jones, the event will also be supported by London disco collective Shoplifter with Derren Smart, jozif and Fabric resident Craig Richards. The event will also present a one-off photographic exhibition showcasing a decade of London clubbing from three infamous local photographers Rob Low, Nick Ensing and Ralf Obergfell documenting the last ten years. We speak to Mr Troxler before his upcoming set about his favourite new acts, some man who thinks he's a snake and his not-so-secret love of Sheryl Crow.
