Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I guess you could call me a “beat maker”, i prefer “curious creator” though as it’s a little more discriptive of what it is i actually do. Doesn’t always have to be music, i just love creation or “art” in general! I think it’s everything! Music just tend to be the best way for me to portray how im feeling or have felt… it’s certainly one of the stronger ways to connect through expression. With out getting too deep, i think if you can convey what you feel or have felt… you can almost become apart of those it resonates with most! I love that. I try and make emotive music… and i also try and steer clear of following a set template or trend, its hard but i think that “feel” is most important overall, id like to think most of my stuff is a little left of centre, just like me ? probably doesnt help in terms of having my music played out but who cares… its not all about that! Also i dont believe in being one particular style or genre… your never just happy all the time, mad all the time or in love all the time are you? Why would my music be that way. If i had to describe my style in a few words id say, ambient, emotive, bass driven with a slight hip hop edge!



How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years? Do you feel that changing tastes over years as artistic growth? ?


I have so many influences! Everything that catches my ear or eye is a definite “influence” some times it can be a smell haha it’s hard to explain but everything i experience on a daily basis is an influence for me… in terms of music specifically, it started out rather dark, melodic and heavy and over the years has become very light melodic and vibey, i still love the music i liked 10 years ago as much as i love the music i like now, its all angles isnt it? Like moods, they change… also your taste matures and refines with age and experiences! Kinda like a journey of feels. I used to discover new artists randomly search the internet, and friends influence played a big part! Now alot of it is spotify and youtube, friends still play a part of it but its all very different now to when i started




What´s new right now?


Well it’s funny you ask haha i put a new instrumental out yesturday for free titled “EAST” a small island off the coast of Thailand called Koh Toa was the inspiration! It’s rather chill but still bass driven! Also i’ve got another free track which is a little harder coming out a month from now titled “Unite” which has been inspired by all the war and segragation nonsense thats been going on since forever up until this very day… i can’t wait to put that one out into the interwebs! ?

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


Dont fall for the glam of “the scene” its fully of politics a fake people that just want something from you! Seek true and real relationships! They will last longer

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?


Life has been challenging in general! We are brought into a world where the system is set up so tight that if you dont slave your life away working then your probably going to struggle to do what really drives you to exist! I wont get to deep into it but all im going to say is… keep going! Strive for what you live for and dont take anything less. I’ve been broke for years just scraping by so that i can do what truly makes me happy… small time or big time im haooy either which way because im doing what i want to do!
