𝟭. Where are you from and what is your hobby?
I'm from Suffolk in the UK, I've recently just graduated from university doing Computer Science. Making music is easily my number one hobby when I'm not working out, watching youtube, programming, drinking coffee or watching the crypto market.
𝟮. How did your get into music?
It feels like I've always been into music, but I think it all really started when I was about 10, having guitar lessons with my local guitar teacher. Later when I was about 12, I started messing around with Garageband and Mixcraft, just dragging in samples and loops from the stock library and making music that way, not really having any knowledge of what I was doing. Eventually, after doing music at secondary school (14-16) then doing music technology at sixth-form (16-18), my ability to produce became something I never thought it could be.
𝟯. Who are your biggest influences?
Most of my influences are big EDM artists like Diplo, Tiesto, KSHMR, R3HAB, Knife Party, Avicii, Nom de Strip and MDK, plus many others.
4. What are your goals in the music industry?
To become someone who has his EDM music played anywhere and everywhere. To show everyone how amazing EDM can be, since it isn't as highly valued as other forms of music.
5. If you could choose a location to perform at, what would it be?
To perform massive tunes in Ibiza or Miami with thousands jumping and screaming to the music would be incredible. Glastonbury might be more realistic, though.
6. What is your all-time favorite song?
To be honest, I don't have one. There are far too many songs that I like, I couldn't choose.
7. Most embarrassing moment?
Probably farting really loudly during a massive karate tournament. After each person's performance, everyone would clap, and the next kata would occur. I attempted to hide the fart within the clapping, but it came out later than expected.
8. Proudest accomplishment?
Graduating university with a first. A lot of shit happened over the last three years that made it tough, especially with covid towards the end. Some people that I knew actually died in my first year alone, and there was a lot of misery when trying to find a decent job so I could keep doing what I wanted to do. But it was all worth it. I think.
9. What is something about you that might surprise someone who knows you the best?
I actually really enjoy violent content, be it songs, films, or games, to the point that it just makes me want to attack people. I never would though, I'm not an idiot. But I do hold grudges pretty deeply.
𝟭𝟬. What is your dream collaboration?
Probably with the one and only KSHMR. His music has been extremely influential to me and he seems like a pretty decent guy to collab with.
