Hello guys, the following interview may be a little harsh but I need to say it´s
I started making music in 2009, I slowly bought more gear for my studio and started to self release beat CDs for free and a bit of money here and there. What I set out to do is still what I am trying to do now, just make my music with my own voice.
Its very hard for me to say, my favourites are often the most recent and they have not been released yet so I can not share them… for now I will say this track:
I start my sampling lots of material from records whilst thinking about what I want to make. I then begin to try and structure a tune. Often They don’t work so I will go back to the project and reuse the samples in other ways for other tracks
Madlib, Theo Parrish, Moodyman, Dilla, massive attack, DJ Shadow
Playing at the national portrait Gallery in London 2014 as well as the TATE Britain were pretty cool.
Im finishing off a hiphop album with a rapper called Madlean, also trying to finish off an ep with a cool label called 22a. Im doing some music also with a singer called Aisha Zoe. Hopefully these will all be out on Vinyl. Apart from this Im trying to get more Sound Design work and teach more drum lessons.
It can be very frustrating spending 4 hours on a tune and it still not work.. Im currently developing my sound so I’m learning much more about my methods and attitudes for producing music. Also, I don’t have as much time as I wish I did, this means collaborations I would like to do I can’t, and I find my self having to turn down a lot of projects which could go places
A label based in south London called 22a have a unique sound which completely resonate with where I musically come from and where I would like to take it.
