I have been producing music for about 8 years and DJing for 10. I had my first release when I was 21 under the name 'Breakdown' with my DJ partner Tony Global (Tummy Touch records). It was called 'First of All' and sold over 2000 copies, as well as receiving rave reviews in magazines from Mixmag to The NME. At the same time we we're DJing together all over the country and ran a night at the legendary Bomb club in Nottingham called 'Breakdown'. We booked and played alongside acts such as Groove Armada, Plump DJ's, Bent, Aim and many others. I released one more track with Tony then decided to start producing stuff on my own (I was beginning to become a control freak in the studio, and it wasn't my studio!). The first outing was 'Nu-man' on British breakbeat label Boombox. It was fusion of tough electro beats (old style electro) and Gary Numan inspired melodies (hence the title). It got great reviews and support from many corners, including James Lavelle, Freq Nasty and DJ Hyper.
I then spent the next few years developing my own style, learning about production techniques and trying to start a label (which I gave up on when company after company started going under; both labels and distributors). After I decided to solely be an artist and not a mogul, I released some house and techno tracks with Cubic records and a crazy breakbeat track ('Forward')with Nottingham based Sound of Spectrum records, who were awarded best breakthrough label at last years International Breakbeat Awards at Fabric (London). I am to release one more track with them entitled 'Manabad' which will be out in April 2008 but my main outlet now is the excellent Pure Mint Recordings who I have an album coming out with some time before the summer and with whom I have already achieved great success with the single 'The Crowd C'est Beau'. My influences are far too countless to mention, but both my productions and DJ sets comprise of elements of techno, house, breakbeat, drum and bass, old rave(!), punk, funk, hip-hop and disco. I guess what may set me apart from a lot of producers is my refusal to stick to one genre or sub-genre (of which there are many to choose from; see 'click house', 'no wave' etc etc) possibly to the detriment of my career thus far! I think though, that todays iPod generation prefer a much more varied musical diet, which is good for producers/DJs like myself.
