1. What inspired you to start making music?

I’ve always been obsessed with the world of sound and how we perceive it. I was first introduced to playing music in the form of Cello when I was 7. This progressed on to drums, synthesisers and twiddling with anything else I could get my hands on. I started coming up with my own stuff on my breaks at school where we had access to guitars and pianos. After coming up with a number of hooky riffs I followed in my peers footsteps and started a band. Realising that we were rubbish I jumped on the back of a prog rock band playing drums for some guys a few years above me. I got squeezed out eventually and replaced. I don’t think much happened to them. Producing came later when I was set loose on Cubase VST, a very basic piece of software that enabled me to produce basic beats. This is where I met the world of sequencing and have never looked back.

I guess a general love for music and sound got me into it.

2. What is the best part about what you do?

Every part is amazing. I guess variation keeps things exiting. It’s impossible to have two days the same when you’re making music every track I write is very individual.

Also working with like minded people and having flexibility is great. I get to be a geek playing with technology and a business head as the music industry acts as a pilot for loads of marketing techniques.

3. Who do you admire?

I think the question should be more what do I admire. Of course loved ones top the list but I have a great admiration for the world around us. I find life fascinating and have an admiration for nature. This doesn’t mean I’m a hippy, I just think a lot of human creations are a reinvention of something in nature.

4. You recently released a song, ‘No Chances’ with Mi7 Records in London, U.K.. What brought about this collaboration?

 It’s not really a collaboration. I wrote the tracks and produced them. Mi7 helped me with mixdowns and post production.

Mi7 are like minded renovators of the music industry and a close knit family.

5. How do you generate themes for your music?

That’s not a question with a simple answer.

6. What kinds of work have you done with the band King Charles?

 King Charles is the lead singer. I’ve done remixes.

7. What is it about remixes that compels you to make them so much?

Taking a story and writing it the way I want.

8. What do you respect most in a creative collaboration?

Being open and not letting ego get in the way of making something great.

9. Do you see yourself making music in countries other than the U.K.?

Yes
