David Squillace, the Italian techno and tech house titan, renowned for creating more grooves on the DC-10 than anyone else, sat down with us to talk about his travel essentials. After moving from his homeland of Naples to Barcelona, and having a residency at Circo Loco in Ibiza, it's safe to say that Davide knows a thing or two about what to pack for your busy life.

When you tour the world weekly, get on thousands of flights in your career and play to sold out shows almost every night, knowing what to pack becomes an art form. Thankfully, we've pulled in a bit of an expert to help us out so you know what you can and live without, or in Davide's case what he can and can't live without. Here are Davide Squillace's travel bag essentials for us at The Idle Man.

Where is the next destination you’re travelling to?

The next destination would be my tour around South America. I’ll be playing three shows in Argentina, two in Peru and two in Colombia before heading back home for three days.

How many flights do you think you’ve been on throughout your career?

Oh wow! Thousands!

Where is the nicest place you’ve travelled to?

Napoli, my hometown - I no longer live there.

Best hotel you’ve ever stayed in?

As a location, it would have to be in the Maldives. My favourite hotel would be Le Trois Rois, it means the Three Kings in French. It’s located in Basel and the building is 300/400 years old - it’s amazing!

The Maldives is one of the most beautiful places Davide has travelled to

What's the worst thing about constantly moving?

Security checks!

Do you still get jet lag or has that stopped now?

I don’t think anybody ever really gets over jet lag. Your biological body clock has the constantly change so you never get used to it.

What do you do to stay healthy whilst travelling around the world?

Erm, nothing!

What are the essentials you can’t travel without?

My headphones, wireless phone charger so I can contact my family at any time and a box of various different medicines to combat any illnesses I might face.

Any tips on how to travel efficiently?

Always print your boarding pass and don’t fly with rubbish companies as they will fuck you up!

Finally, if you could change one thing about the process of travelling, what would it be?

When you visit a country and they don’t make you feel welcome and it happens at the security point when flying too. It’s a bit sad and annoying!
