How would you describe your sound in a few words?

Organic Electronic and Evolving, ideally I’d like things to sound like a crazy flip of an old sample, except I’ve also made the sample.

How do you handle music requests?

They are the worst, especially from drunk angry people.

What do you do when equipment goes on strike?

I paint or walk my dog.

You’re preparing to release your next EP, have the tracks been in the works for a while? Tell us more about the project.

Yeah! This project is a mix of a few tracks that have been bubbling around since around 2019. It’s been a whole process trying to get the right team around it but in the end I’ve just gone for it myself totally solo, it feels good, I’m excited to have them out in the world alongside the music videos and new artwork. I’ve made the tracks between London, Vilnius in Lithuania, Warsaw, Mexico and LA, I’m kind of always tinkering away at things as I travel.

The video for ‘Touch’ has a feel of early Beastie Boys videos, can you tell us more about the direction of the visual concept?

This all happened very last minute with my friend Troy Baird, he’s also a photographer and a great director. We shot the whole thing around his house and area in Bristol, trying to balance some comedy with the well crafted abstract shots. The song is about commitment issues, with the lyrics “Come closer, But leave me alone” Playing with that push pull idea we wanted to depict a character on the run from his subconscious, with an undertow of humour and melancholy.

What are your musical influences from childhood?

My first influences were wide ranging thanks to my Dad, from Fishbone and early Red Hot Chili Peppers to a lot of early breakbeat and Hip Hop. I was simultaneously getting hit with the energy of Punk and Funk and the sonic energy of the drums and 808’s in the sample and beat driven music.

Is it even possible to argue about musical tastes?

I don’t think so. In the words of David Bowie ‘Talking about art is like dancing about architecture’.

Which track would run when you moved into your boxing match?

Maybe Yankee Rose by David Lee Roth

What was the worst job you ever had?

When I was a photography assistant at a studio called Big Sky in London – I was on carpark duty in the winter just letting people in and out of the carpark which you had to do via your phone – my hands got so iced out that they wouldn’t work my phone so I had to operate it with my tongue letting some pretty high brow fashion people in and out of the carpark looking like a nutter licking his phone.

Do you have any good tour stories from clubs or festivals?

Hopefully I’ll have some next year when I start touring!

What would you do if you weren’t a musician?

I’d be doing photography and film full time I think, with painting on the side, I just love making stuff, it doesn’t really matter in which medium.

Which style of music should have the most followers? And why?

I think just good songs, that can translate through any style and appeal to anyone depending on a feeling. I like the idea that a great song can affect a 80 year old the same as it can a 15 year old kid if its delivered to them in a way that resonates.

What is the most important musical equipment invention of all time – and why?

I hate to say it but probably the laptop.

What would you advise to become a professional?

Try to make money in various ways so that you can survive whilst creating, also try not to waste too much time doing unproductive stuff like drinking or playing video games. Also see where you can take inspiration from that is outside of your craft. Also on a productivity nerd flex – set timers and practice, if you wanna make beats set a timer for 15 minutes every day and try things out.
