A UK based producer for 15 years, experiencing most success between 1997-2000 with the tracks: Indica, Aftershock and Pink Bomb (Quad communications / BOXED).

Band/artist history
A brief history: Started off in the 1992 using a Commodore A500 with Soundtracker (mods) and quickly got into the demo scene. I then moved on to the Atari ST in 1994 (something i would be using for a VERY long time) running Cubase 3.1. Ive lost count of the number of synths or modules ive owned, but the favorite was the Roland JV1080. Using the above setup we were able to produce tracks that were quickly snapped up by the Newcastle based "Quad Communications" (Sub division of Boxed). The biggest track by far was "Indica", which was licensed worldwide (450,000 sales on the Ministry of sound annual).
Have you performed in front of an audience?
No live play (yet)... cant be arsed. But Ive had bags of radio play in the past (BBC Radio 1, Essential selection.. etc..)
