If you’ve been anywhere near a soundsystem in the last year, you’ve probably heard his outstanding Taj Mahal, which is already being hailed by some as the release of the year.

Released this March on Infernal Sounds, the vinyl only two-track EP IFSXXX001 includes his equally brilliant Danny Uzi Vert. He’s following up his EP launch with a string of local sets including a massive lineup from the Freerange crew at Blue Mountain, alongside Caspa, Kahn and Neek with Commodo and Killa P, Joker and Flirta D, and Egoless.

He’s also put together an exclusive 30-minute mix for Nitelife NOISE. Listen below to see why he’s shaping up to be next in line to take the crown for Bristol’s best grime producer.

Those questions

What have you learned today?
Answering questions about yourself is a lot harder than it seems.

Favourite track of all time?
Can’t pin it down to one as I go through so much music depending on how I’m feeling, but here are a few that stick out: Dr. S. Gachet – Remember The Roller, J Dilla – Life, Wiley – Igloo (Devils Mix), Maurice – This Is Acid and Roy Ayers – Everybody Loves the Sunshine.

It’s 3am and the party is winding down, what track do you play to get everyone going again?
Jakes & Joker – 3K Lane.

Who are your top three acts right now?
Really feeling everything Headland is sending me, he’s a very serious dubstep producer. Blay Vision just dropped his second instrumental album and I can’t get enough of it and, finally, Commodo… Nuff said.

If you couldn’t work in music, what would you be doing instead?
I want to say photography, but more realistically I would be at home playing video games.

What was the last book you read?
Haven’t read a book in years, I’m more of an online article kind of guy.

Favourite thing on TV?
Vikings – only thing I watch.

Are you afraid of anything?
Dead MCs and clanging mixes.

I used to make house back in the day.

Tell us something people don’t know about you…
I used to make house back in the day.

What are you doing tomorrow?
Recording a couple guest mixes and hopefully going to Pho to devour some Vietnamese food.
