I'm TZMO, I'm 21 and I've been producing since I was 14 years old.
To begin with I was actually doing incredibly well for the following I had. I had around 10,000 followers total across all my music and social media pages and had been played multiple times on BBC Radio 6, BBC Introducing and various other places. I then had a bit of a mental breakdown due to a lot of things going on and took a year out of EVERYTHING.
I went to college for a bit, and spent the majority of my time in the studios recording artists. When I wasn't in the studios I was out as sound tech at gigs around the South West UK.
I have come back to productio now though, changed my production name and I'm hoping to make a splash again!
I haven't, but I have sound tech'd a lot of amazing artists.
My list of influences goes on forever...
My parents were ravers back in the 90's, and before that my dad was a metal head. Now the genres that get played a lot around the house are New Wave, Punk, Indie, LoFi and experimental stuff.
I personally love a bit of everything, from Son Lux to Zounds and all the way to Chemical Brothers and back to L'Entourloop, Fela Kuti, the list goes on and on and on. You name a genre and I probably like a fair few artists from it.
