The DJ, also known as Tom Jenkinson, previously revealed plans for a collaboration with the Outkast rapper on a 2007 edition of The Culture Show.
Jenkinson has now told Drowned in Sound: "The intentions are all good on both sides and we're both really keen to do it.
"But factoring in how busy we are and how s**t we are at organising things, it's three years later and it's like 'Why isn't it happening?'. It hasn't hit the point of making that important phone call, and nothing happens."
He added: "But we've talked a few times on the phone and we're gradually edging towards a plan. 'cos I think it could be absolutely amazing, it could be f**king astonishingly good. I couldn't think of any vocalist I'd rather work with, and the ideas I've got are f**king staggering!
"So it's gonna happen... my publisher's onto it now, so I think that might mean that it'll happen in the next few years, rather than the next 30 years!"
