"Every day is an adventure - Born and raised in Brixton, London. Influenced by a whole hurricane of genres. Film music. Hip Hop. Jungle. Reggae. Blues. A lover of rhythm and bass. Orchestras. Gospel choirs. Sound design. Playing various instruments. Drumming since the age of 10. Military cadet training. 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. Grew a deep respect for their techniques. Taught to close my eyes and feel the music. Respect the rhythm. Learnt the art of dub mixing. Silence is just as powerful.
Love character. Tone. Something to say. Talent over looks. Quality over quantity. Dedication and passion. Love capturing the magic. Trying different approaches. Mashing up genres. Pushing boundaries. Having a laugh along the way. Enjoy the journey - keep growing, imagining and discovering. Plan exciting new ventures. Encourage thought-provoking ideas. Discuss new ideas. Think outside the box.
Fascinated by different cultures. Captivated by the world around us. Had some incredible life experiences. Observed Earth from immense mountain peaks. Enchanted by Maasai skies. Tribal caves 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 a collaboration, music is a universal gift, an d our time here is golden."
