Firstly I want to talk about your new track ‘More’ which is heavily supported by the likes of Hazard, Subzero etc. How did it all come about to be signed by Serial Killaz label Serial Killaz Recordings?
-I’d originally been making dubstep for a while before I’d met tobie and I wanted to go back to making D&B again. I’d put some tracks together and I’d caught tobie just as he was leaving a night in norwich he was playing at and after a quick chat I’d passed him my email address and a CD. He’d played the track ‘gunshots’ at nass festival and it got a great reaction. I’d received an email off him and a phone call saying he wanted to sign the track! It got released on vinyl with “Annix – Killa Clash” on the A side in december 2013. As for more I’d sent Tobie and Graham (Serial Killaz) A copy of more quite a while back and it wasn’t quite finished, it got put on hold for a while and then I sen’t him a final version over and he liked it. I got to work with finishing a couple other tracks as well as some new ones and then the idea for an EP came about! The support since then for the tracks has been amazing
You also made some banging jungle tracks, how do you find the transition between the different styles of drum and bass?
– I’ve always found jungle to be a massive influence in my music, I had grown up listening to people like Andy C/Micky Finn/Nicky blackmarket/Dillinja/Ronnie size ect. And my families always been into reggae music so i love a reggae influence in anything. Jungle ticked all the boxes for me and it still does! I love it.
I’ve had a really good listen of all the tracks on your EP The Killer Business and there are some bangers and the production is on point, how long have you been producting for?
-I’ve been making music for close on 10 years odd… I had the demo version of Fruity Loops 3.0 and later on got hold of version 3 of Reason. I didn’t move from that until Version 6 of FL came out and thats when I really started to focus on production, I feel I’m constantly learning new things and I’ve got a long way to go but I’m learning so much more all the time. I now work in a studio as an audio/recording engineer full time and I get to work on my own stuff a lot witch helps massively!
You are from Norwich, there are some wicked artists coming from there recently, the likes of Azza, Dominator and TI. Is there anyone else we should be looking out for?
-Yeah my little brother ‘Limited’ is smashing it at the moment, he’s come a long way. Dub justice, Dominator as you said. My good friend Diamond eyes who’s not making D&B but he’s a great producer and doing amazing things! Definitely TI I’ve actually been working on a few tracks with him recently! As for MC’s I’d say I’m highly rating MTD and Azza. They are definitely smashing it! D&B in the east is looking healthy!
Most people know Limited is your brother, do you have any collaborations in the pipeline?
– Who knows maybe one day…
Thank you Upgrade for letting me interview you. Good luck with your EP!
