Grain isn’t structured like a screen door that you’re looking through, but pixels are. Film-based grain is just all over the place, one frame totally different from the next. So your edges are coolly sharp and have a different feeling, an organic feeling rather than this mechanic feeling you get with digital.

I’m always getting sent new stuff, so I have to incorporate digital equipment into my sets, but I try to play vinyl as much as possible. It’s just the best-sounding format still. And I’ve been using vinyl since I started deejaying, for over 15 years, so it also just feels the most natural for me.
