"Born and raised in Brixton, London. Had some incredible life experiences. Influenced by a whole hurricane of genres. Film music. Hip Hop. Jungle. Reggae. Blues. Orchestras. Gospel choirs. Sound design. Playing various instruments. Drumming since the age of 10. Military cadets. Film acting. Studied at art college & film school. Grafted my way into the music industry. Engaged in the art of production.
Worked my way up. Extreme sleep deprivation. Hard work. Ambition. Learnt on the job with industry greats. Progressed from studio engineer to record producer. Formed a strong connection with reggae artists. Worked with Bob Marley's musicians. Taught to close my eyes and feel the music. Respect the rhythm. Learnt the art of dub mixing. Silence is just as powerful. Music is a gift, a truly magical and universal language.
Love character. Tone. Something to say. Talent over looks. Quality over quantity. Dedication and passion. Imagination. Trying different approaches. Mashing up genres. Pushing the boundaries. Capturing that magic. Having a laugh along the way. Embracing your journey - Build. Discover. Grow. Innovate. Plan exciting new ventures. Encourage thought-provoking concepts. Discuss new ideas. Think outside the box.
Fascinated by different cultures. Captivated by the world around us. Observed Earth from immense mountain peaks. Enchanted by stunning Maasai skies. Tribal huts to Hollywood heights. Witnessed truly poverty-stricken slums. It’s just luck if you're born on the other side. Amazed. Confused. Horrified. Inspired. Life is the greatest cinema, our time here is golden and every day is a potential adventure."
