Tracklist + Interview below.

DSOTW: Tell us a bit about yourself, and some facts of PTN.
PTN: Class '91, I was born in Padua (Italy), I have always loved techno music, I started to play in raves party a few years ago and I felt that music was part of my soul. Afterwards I started producing and my firsts tracks were remixes for: The Brilliants, Totentanz and ZenToy (i won the remix contest organized by Rainbow Mode Records). My tracks/remixes are influenced by artists such: NT89, Congorock, Boys Noize, Blatta & Inesha, Sound of Stereo, Shinichi Osawa, The Loops Of Fury and many others.

DSOTWIf you could describe your music in 3 words, what would they be?
PTNIf i must describe my music in 3 words I'd certainly say passion, devotion and life.

DSOTWCould you tell the readers a bit about your musical roots? How and when did you know you wanted to produce electro/techno? 
PTNWhen I was a child I was a drummer in a rock band. Afterwards I decided to start producing and remixing because my passion for hard music was always growing. I chose to do electro/techno because in my opinion this sort of music is the perfect balance between techno and electro. My music is the perfect mirror of my difficult personality. People must remember that: New Techno is the WAY!

DSOTWYou have recently moved to London (from Italy?!). How are you finding it? Do you think it was the right move?
PTNOn winter 2011 i  moved to London for a few months to test new styles of music and know the real world of clubbing. I'm very proud of my choise because i've lived in a city that teachs you the real means of clubbing. There you are close to every type of music so i learned a lot. ( For example i made dubstep for the first time in Chase and Status - Time Remix).

DSOTWWhat do you when you're not DJing/producing?
PTNWhen I'm not producing I'm a normal guy, I love chillin' with my friends. 

DSOTWWhat's your equipment of choice for producing music?
PTNI produce music with FL Studio 9 and I think that it's a very cool program for making music. It's professional.

DSOTWAre there any producers at the moment you think we should be keeping our eyes on?
PTNIn my opinion at the moment there are two DJs/producers that people should be keeping their eyes on: Etnik and SCNTST.

DSOTWWhat are you top three favorite club tunes at the moment?
PTNNT89 - DB /  The Loops Of Fury - Don't Stop / Style of Eye - We Are Boys

DSOTWWhat has been the most memorable show you have played, and why?   
PTNThe most memorable show I played was certainly in Germany because German people are very crazy, it was the best show ever in my life. I'd like to return there it was awesome.

DSOTWYou have official remixes released for 'Brilliants - La Fuga', "Totentanz - Apocalypse' and 'ZenToy - Zentai Love' EP's to name a few... what's next?

PTNThe next step will be my exclusive track called Revenge on Basserk Records and at the moment I'm doing remixes for Vakkuum and Speaker Buster.

DSOTWSay you could name any DJ/Producer in the world to have a back to back session with. Who would he/she be?

PTN: There are a lot of artists with who I'd really like to have back to back season with, in particular Boys Noize. On the other hand my dream is to have a back to back session with Shinichi Osawa.
