Coming from the diverse musical landscape of the UK, this artist has been deeply influenced by the rich genres and cultural nuances of the region. From a young age, their passion for electronic music was ignited by watching their father deejay around the world. Their musical journey took a formal shape with the study of Music Technology in College and further honing their skills at a specialist Music University in Brighton.

With influences from Dubstep, Drum & Bass, and rave music, their music presents a unique blend that’s gritty, underground, and fresh. Their collaboration with Ella Roxburgh on “I Broke You First” represents an important milestone in their career, marking the first time they ventured outside of pure electronic music.

In addition to their performances across the UK, Greece, Albania, and Las Vegas, they have also released three EPs, ten Singles, and an Album that have been positively received. Future plans include a tour, an upcoming EP, and possibly two Albums, reflecting their ongoing commitment to performing and engaging with new audiences.

One amusing anecdote from their career involves a late-night studio session at their college, leading to a mad dash out the door when the alarms went off. Whether it’s on stage or in the studio, their commitment to music shines through, promising more innovative and powerful creations in the years to come.

Interview with MXTE

Tell us about yourself, who are you and where do you come from?

Music has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. Growing up in the UK, I was exposed to a diverse range of musical genres and cultures. This rich musical tapestry influenced my artistic development and ignited my passion for creating and sharing music. I began my musical journey by taking on music production masterclasses in my hometown of Chelmsford at a studio round the corner from where I live. The owner of the studio took me under his wing and ever since then I’ve been producing electronic music. I’m heavily influenced by my dad to do well within this scene as from an early age I’ve watched him deejay multiple times around the world in front of a huge audience I knew that this is what I wanted to do. These experiences allowed me to explore my creative potential and develop a deep connection with music as a means of self-expression. As I delved deeper into my musical aspirations, I pursued formal training in College studying Music Technology and currently perfecting my craft at a specialist Music University in Brighton. This education not only has refined my technical skills but also broadened my musical horizons by exposing me to different styles, techniques, and musical theories. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of collaborating with various musicians and artists, both locally and internationally. These collaborations have expanded my musical palette and encouraged me to experiment with different genres and fusion of styles. As a result, my music has evolved into a unique blend that reflects my personal experiences, cultural influences, and artistic vision. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to perform at a plethora of locations, including the UK, Greece, Albania and Las Vegas, and I aim to do more as I truly believe that this culture of music should be heard all over the world. These experiences have not only honed my stage presence and performance skills but have also allowed me to connect with audiences on a deeper level. The ability to evoke emotions and create a meaningful connection through music is something I cherish as an artist. In addition to my performances, I have also released three EP’s, ten Singles and an Album which have received positive feedback from both critics and fans. Each release has been a labor of love, meticulously crafted to convey my authentic vision and artistic identity. Coming from the UK, I carry with me the cultural heritage and musical influences of the region. This background has shaped my music in unique ways, infusing it with elements of Dubstep, Drum & Bass and good old rave music, which all have deep roots within where I come from. It is this gritty, underground fusion of influences that sets me apart as an artist and allows me to offer a fresh perspective in the music industry. As I continue to grow as a music artist, I am committed to pushing the boundaries of my creativity and exploring new sonic landscapes. I am constantly seeking inspiration from diverse sources, drawing from my own life experiences, and observing the world around me. Through my music, I aspire to inspire, uplift, and connect with listeners on a profound level.

How was your passion for music born? Who are your idols?

My passion really comes from multiple sources, other good and bad. Seeing my dad do what he does best really painted that picture for me in terms of where I wanted my life to go. Him and his colleagues that have aided me on this journey, trying to make them proud is what I strive to do everyday. Also having people doubt me in the past telling me that I would never get anywhere with this truly fuels this fire in me to do well in life. To be honest my dad is my biggest idol. But in terms of other artist out there in which I take inspiration from and would love to perfect their sound, it would have to be Deadmau5, Hadley, Disclosure, Culture Shock, Enei, Turno, Fred Again… the list could go on and on, I really fuck with those guys.

What kind of music do you do?

I try to make music with a captivating blend of genres. The best way I can describe it would be a fusion of electronic, pop, gritty electronic bass music with alternative elements. I try to create catchy melodies, infectious rhythms, and when I write lyrics for music i’m working on with other artists, introspective lyrics that delve into personal experiences and emotions. I strive to create a sonic landscape that is both relatable and sonically engaging, drawing inspiration from a wide range of musical influences. I hope that my innovative approach to music allows me to craft a sound that is uniquely my own, captivating listeners with my distinctive blend of genres.

What is the most important song for you? What message do you want to convey to the listener?

The most important track I have made myself would have to be my collaboration with Ella Roxburgh “I Broke You First”. It’s one of those tracks that I’ve spent the longest in the studio to make, it was my first collaboration with another artist including a vocalist, first time writing lyrics and it was the first track I made which wasn’t electronic. In some ways, it was the first time I ever really opened up to experimenting outside of the box. It was truly a creative journey that I will never forget and will always treasure, many emotions where put into this track and i’m so so glad that it was well received. I aim to create more music like this in the future. If it wasn’t for that track , I don’t think I would be as open minded and creative as I am today.

Why should a listener who doesn’t know you listen to your music?

I feel as though people should check me out and listen to what I create because of how much time and effort I put into this dream I have. My music is a reflection of myself and the intensities I feel and experience in my life. I really do feel like people can relate to that, life ebbs and flows. One day you’re feeling the best you’ve ever felt in you’re life and the next you’re filled with either hatred anger or sadness, and these things are so normal in human nature and I think we should express those feelings. I would love to jam out to the same song one day feeling great and the another day scream it out with all that pent up rage inside of me. If one track or song can release those two contrasting emotions for everyday people, a slight glimpse of emotional freedom, then I know I’ve done okay. I aim to create powerful music, and I would love it for people to listen to my process, my journey, my life-long roller coaster into trying to achieve this goal.

What are your future projects? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

Well I’ve got a little tour coming up this year which should be fun, and another EP before the end of this year but quite frankly i’m focusing on getting out there more you know, seeing new people new faces and performing more than releasing. Once i’m comfortable with my performances and feel as though I have done enough that’s when I’ll start releasing the big guns. I’ve got two Albums ready for the world to see but they’ll come out when the time is right. Five years from now I couldn’t honestly tell you where i’ll be, I tend to just focus on the now, the present, the moment. Sure I have aspirations of where id want to be in five years time but as they say, learn to walk before you run, and that’s what I plan to do. But who knows maybe I will be somebody someday and maybe I won’t but either way as long as im doing what I love best then i’m happy.

Tell our readers a funny episode that happened in your career as an artist.

I think one of the funniest stories I have from being in the studio would have to be when during the production of “I Broke You First”, me and the vocalist got so distracted and then continued to work on the track for so long, we completely forgot that we where in college grounds and it was easy gone past eight at night. We got up thinking everything was normal and then all of a sudden all the alarms went off. We bolted out those college doors like a bat out of hell it was hilarious!!
