Locked Grove: "I moved my studio into my living room"

The Berlin based Belgian DJ goes for bike rides on Tempelhof and he admits he kind of like the isolation that comes with the Corona Virus, at least music wise.

The community has been standing still for more than a month now. How are you? "I'm good thanks.  I have moved my studio into my living room so I can keep working without making any unnecessary movements throughout the city."

How do you pass the days? "I usually get up at 7.30– 8 am, have a coffee and go for a couple of laps with my bike on Tempelhofer Feld. It jumpstarts my day and forces me to actually get out of bed."

What is your daily routine these days?

"It's not that different from my routine before to be fair. As I said I usually go for a bike ride and after that I just start working on music. This period has been remarkably productive now that I think of it. The only danger is that I'm sitting 2 meters away from a Playstation 4 at the moment which can rope me in from time to time."

Have you discovered something new about yourself by being isolated?

"Life seemingly moves at a slower pace, days flow into each other with no real beginning or end. To be honest with you I kind of enjoy that aspect from it. There's no more rat race or at least that's how it feels personally for me. Music wise it has opened up new roads that I never thought I would walk

What is the first thing you’re going to do in Berlin when this is all over?  "Have some drinks and dinner with a bunch of friends. I'd say that's what I miss the most at the minute, just being able to go and do whatever you like."
