RC: A clear head, some inspiration, lots of coffee. SM: Best place in the world to listen to music?

words by Sarah Miniaci

Oh, Russ Chimes. In a maelstrom of bore-me-todeath tech house and yawn-worthy rock n’ roll, Chimes’ original tracks and remixes are just...well, awesome. And cool. And sexy. And really, everything good, fun, out-of-your-mind dance music should be. With remixes under his belt of big name acts like Ellie Goulding and Mark Ronson whipping dance floors around the world into frenzies, Chimes’ first official offering of original material, the Midnight Club EP speaks of his penchant for beautiful sports cars and glittering, spacey synthesizers. Read on to find out what turns this London, UK native on, off and who he’d choose to be if given the option of time travel. SM: 3 things you can't produce music without?

RC: In your car at dusk or on a train watching the world go by. SM: What feeling or mood were you accessing when making the!Midnight Club EP, and did you think that the Keshavarz-directed series of videos accurately captured it? RC: The loose concept of the EP was originally just to make some good driving music, get the adrenaline pumping and use the melodies to take you away for a short time. I think Saman captured the essence really well, and obviously added a whole lot more! He managed to create huge drama, tension and displayed super complex storytelling using those three little tracks!
