How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My influences started from a young age due to my love for lovers rock, reggae music. The 80s & 90s played a huge part in influencing me into early electronic underground music,hip hop, Techno, hardcore and jungle into most current styles.
Today my influences are the same as they always were. Underground sounds of the past,present and future ?
drum and bass, hip hop, grime and crossovers of styles whats keeping my interested in producing and DJing at present.
