Where are you answering these questions?

Long Beach, California

You are a Brighton-based Trap producer. How did you get in touch with electronic music in the first place and how did you get into DJing and music production?

I first really encountered electronic music when I was a big fan of Dubstep and DnB around 2009. I’ve always been a fan of hiphop since a pretty young age. My older brother Ben introduced me to FL Studio 7 a while back and I experimented with producing Dubstep, it wasn’t great. I later moved on to FL Studio 11 and currently use that. The DJing and live element all came after production when booking offers slowly started coming in, and my first show was in Budapest, April 27th 2013.

How would you describe your own music, what is distinct about it?

I find this is a difficult question to answer, but i’ve been told it’s like alternative hiphop instrumentals, some of which are club-friendly.

You are best known for your track “Ball So Hard” - a collaboration with Stööki Sound. What other tracks, remixed or mixsets would you recommend to someone that is not yet familiar with your music?

More popular ones would be House Party or Panic Cord (Remix), but I would want to suggest just having a browse on the SoundCloud and see if anything resonates.

What are you currently working and focusing on? What’s on your agenda for the near future?

Currently touring a lot. I just did Australia with OZZIE and am in the U.S. as of now until the end of October. Brand new music/album and label related work is on the agenda as well as more live events.

What were the best and the worst gigs you ever played and what were the funniest things ever occurred during any of your performances?

Thinking back on some, it’s hard to single out a best gig but one for the books was definitely Paradiso 2016 at a venue called The Gorge Amphitheatre. The settings are incredible and was great vibes. A worst gig would be one where the S4 starts playing up! Luckily no gigs have been too much of a nightmare.

What can you tell us about clubbing and nightlife in Brighton? Do you have any nightlife related suggestions for first-time visitors?

It’s very Southern-England, a mix of people, a lot of Uni goers. It’s a good laugh. The seafront strip is a popular night out or in town.

On 19th November you will make your Thailand Debut at Live RCA Bangkok. Have you visited Thailand before? What can the Bangkok crowd expect of your upcoming performance?

I have visited Thailand once before but stayed only in Bangkok and was there for a month. It was really awesome and I much look forward to going back. This time we are spending some time in the Islands while on that side of the pond.

The crowd can expect dance music with good vibes. I will be playing a mixture of my own productions along with teammates from my label VEYRON ARCHE and interesting songs from producers and artists in the scene.
