Well, this is very important : People have said that I do a bit of this and a bit of that, but that’s never been the case. I never wanted a style simply for style’s sake. Music is a very personal and human thing, so if I go and do a song with, say, Tricky, I don’t give a shit where he comes from. His race is bollocks. And when I’m talking with you, I’m not looking for your passport and wondering where you’re from or what you brought here, like the hippies do : "I wonder what star sign he is." No luggage, please ! When I work with someone, it’s down to two characters. Björk Goes Latin, that wouldn’t be honest.
