Tuff Questions is our new series where we ask artists a series of incredibly difficult questions.

This Saturday Audio Rehab returns to Ministry of Sound. Mark Radford and his merry gang of deep tech aficionados will be taking over the club once again and this time they're doing it in Dolby Atmos!

Mark will be joined by Audiojack, Kevin Knapp and Soul Divide in The Box, where they will be pinging bass around the room on clubland's first Atmos system. Over in 103 will be Jack Swaffer & Richey Profond, K&K, Deck Radford, Archie B, P. Cassio and Wheats.

But before all that, how will the Audio Rehab boss fare in the toughest interview in dance music?

My car
