guide - outlook special - best of 2010 - hottest acts of 2011 + more For people that haven’t heard your music, describe your sound. I play Drum &Bass, but theres a lot of influence from Dubstep, House, Electro, Jungle and Trance to name a few.. Ive been influenced a lot by awesome people like London Elektricity, 4Hero, Shy FX and Dillinja.. I think you can hear their influence in my music. How does it feel to be a part of the Hospital crew? Have they been welcoming? Ah yeah, I’ve grown up pretty much listening to them and it was a dream of mine to be a part of them, if not something equally as brilliant, but yeah it feels awesome to be a part of the crew.. Finally! And they’ve definitely welcomed me, I’m really loving it. How did you get into what you’re doing? I have a Brother who’s about 3yrs older than me and he’s always been into dnb so it was something I was around a lot of the time growing up.

How long have you been involved in the scene I’ve been Dj’ing now for about 7 years but I would say professionally for about 3yrs, I’ve been producing for just over 5yrs and have also had my hand in promoting in that time as well. Who in the scene inspired you to want to be a part of it? Hmm, this is a hard one. A lot of different artists inspired me, but each in their own way. Artists like London Elektricity. I do think that the scene itself inspired me.. does that make sense? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Ah, I’d love to be a regular at Outlook. I want to be a respected producer and well have my own successful label, finding and signing new talent.. What other types of music do you listen to? I listen to quite a range of music, Electro House, a bit of rock/metal in there too, stuff like motown and blues thanks to my

parents, I think it comes through in my music. What tune are you excited about at the moment? This tune called Relapse which is the new one from Lung. It gets played on my iPod quite a bit, especially when im out for a run or something.. What’s the most interesting place you have been to? I havent actually travelled around much, but I went down to a small club in France a few months ago. It was such a good night, i can’t even remember the name! Had a wicked time DJ’ing there. What are your plans for the rest of this year? Well im hoping to finish off my first album, featuring a few great new artists. After that ive got a number of gigs lined up around the UK and also abroad in places in Europe and even one in America which im really looking forward to.
