BM: What advice would you give your 13 year old self? YO:!Listen to your inner self, not to what people say. Where do you find the energy to remain so prolific and the inspiration to remain so relevant? I'm just doing what I am inspired to do. I feel strongly that the energy comes with the inspiration, letting me know what is good to do.! How does it feel to be #1 on the charts again?

I used to have songs I didn't want them remixed. But I know better, now. It's a crime to not let others try out their creativity. What is the power of collecting wishes? Collective wishes are very, very strong. It could move a mountain.... What were your ideas behind the lyrics of Wouldnit (I'm a Star)? We are all unknown heros. YES?WHY?

It's great. It is giving me an education of what dance track is, and can be. I am totally impressed by the "high art" of dance remix.! ! Why did you decide to open your musical vault to remixers?

Eternal questions which make life interesting. ! As an originator of electronic music, what do you think about current electronic music culture?! And remix culture specifically?

Why keep it in the vault. For what?!

I don't comment what kids are doing. I only encourage them.

How did you select the remixers for Wouldnit (I'm a Star)? I didn't. This remix was dropped on my lap. "I'm A Star!" !I'm impressed. ! How did the!collaborative process work? The remixer has creative freedom. I am there to give the encouragement they need. ! Why did you decide to provide the sample packs for 'The Sun is Down!' to the world?! Do you think everyone is an artist? I want to encourage people to find their creativity. Everyone is not an artist, but can be. Is there a song of yours, or several, that you would never allow to be remixed? If so, why?

Which of the Wouldnit (I'm a Star) remixes is your favourite? !Why? They are all fantastic. The reason I hope, partly exist in the strength of the original song...but the remixers are particularly creative in this song. How do you feel about being a dance floor queen at this stage in your career?! What led you to the dance floor? I was a dance floor queen from way back....there is a 8mm film of me dancing when I was two and half years old. What do you think is the future of music (near, mid and/or long-term)? Music will always be with us. If not with us, might it be with martians?
