THE INTERVIEW

Please could you tell us about your background and how it leads to the work you do today? 

1)   I’m originally from Bristol so I grew up there and was heavily influenced by the music scene growing up by the likes of Massive attack, Roni size. Portishead, Smith and Mighty and generally bass heavy fusion music. I always loved hip hop, trip hop and Drum and bass, Dubstep Bristol is very well known for these genres and I picked it up from a young age and traveled a lot and ended up in Trinidad so some of my music has a West Indian influence a Caribbean pulse and has fused into what it is today.

What or who has been the biggest singular influence on your work

5) My daughter and my anxiety. My daughter was taken from me to another country without consent when she was 3 years old and it broke me and I went into a huge depression for years and had terrible anxiety, I really had to question my mental health at the time.

You can hear this in my music at that time, my songs “Skyla Rain”, “Men In white coats” and “Dark Days” reflect my pain.
