UK HIP HOP. DRUM AND BASS. LIVE SHOWS, BEATBOXER.
Growin up around the Bristol rave scene I was too young to get into clubs and used to get the tapes off my older sisters Boyfriend and create my own little mash ups using a walkman a loudspeaker and my stereo. After about four years of making pause button mixtapes (when mixtapes were actually tapes!) I started dj'ing Drum and Bass in about 97'. After locking myself away for about 6 years I came out with 1 cd and got hooked up with Drive By and Infidelity - The two biggest names in Drum and Bass in The south west. After being a resident for about four years and playing in every club you can think of I grew tired of the way the scene was going and producers started putting out rubbish and the "clown era began". Meanwhile I was now living in london lovin the uk Hip hop scene and doing some gigs with Orifice Vulgatron from the Foreign Beggars aka Mc Drop and My passion for hip hop turntableism grew and grew. Through out my time in the Drum and Bass scene I have always worked closely with one mc in particular- Blaze mc- to compliment my sets. We have played everywhere from London to Timbuktu and with his unique voice and lyrical metaphors it was obvious we were going to flex some hip hop. I am now part of the six man crew called Sons Of South (S.O.S) with Verbal Remedy, Prophecy, Nature Kid, Blaze Mc, and Terrorist. Now I have a studio with an MPC, an apple mac and a keyboard. If you need cuts on your tunes-or a mixtape done-Trust me i'm your man
