While he has performed in cities all across the world, Humphreys is no newbie when it comes to India. "It’s not my first visit to the country; I have come here a couple of times before. I love India! I feel, as an artist, India is an incredible place to be," he says.
The artist, who counts among his clients model Kate Moss and actor George Clooney, claims to be a Bollywood buff. "I often watch Bollywood films with my family, and to this day, 3 Idiots is my favorite film," he says. The international DJ’s love for India is not restricted to just films, as he’s also a fan of Indian curries, and claims to be "a sucker for the masala sauce!"
While here, Humphreys also plans to record tunes using some classical Indian instruments such as dhol and tabla. As for his plans for the future, Humphreys, who is the resident DJ at the nightclub Shroom for the month of September, says, "I’m going to be setting up my own music label with a couple of friends in October. So, all of my energy will be focused on that pretty much."
