Kreature (aka Ashley Burgoyne) had a solid 2012, dropping tracks and remixes on Kumasi, Bits and Pieces, and Nurvous while his 2011 rework of Cubiq and Real Nice’s “Had Enough” was still setting flames to main rooms from LA to Ibiza. With much in the pipeline for the Leeds-based deep-house producer—including a remix on Chase & Status’ MTA Records, a new album, and his brand-new remix of 16 Bit Lolitas’ “Fat Fly”—we’re excited to see his continued evolution of the deep-house sound, and what 2013 holds.

Sum up 2012 in three words.

The best yet.

There’s been a lot written about you lately… tell us one thing about yourself that the press has missed.

I have nine toes.

Have a favorite track from last year?

It has to be Pachanga Boys’ “Time.” I have had so many amazing moments to that track!

Besides you, who else should we keep an eye on this year?

All of the Kumasi crew! Especially Matt Fear, SION, and Jonny Cade.

Any predictions for 2013, music or otherwise?

Music-wise, I think things are going to get a bit more energetic than 2012… that’s the path I’m taking anyway. Also I’m going back to my roots and bringing a hint of garage back into my tracks. Other than that… total economic meltdown, and somebody will probably tell us the world is going to end again.
