After DJing at events from 2001 onwards, it was April 2008 he decided to turn his hand to producing. Having never used any form of music production equipment before he spent the first year learning and experimenting, then creating a constant stream of material month after month.
He was first introduced to Drum and Bass at the age of 13 with Goldie's ?Timeless', and then 2 years later with Roni Size album ?New Forms'. Having elements of his tracks compared to ?New Forms', he feels this is high praise for this stage in his career.
