How did you get your initial start in music?
Just mixing with other musicians and friends, some in the industry. I started to write songs and moved on to producing tracks as well whilst developing my songwriting.
What would be your ultimate aim in the industry?
To write and produce hits a songwriter and artist, also to perform live whenever possible.
How long have you been writing your own music?
Seriously about two years now, but it has moved up a gear or two in the last twelve months which has been reflected in radio plays.
Who are your top three influences and why?
Harris and Ford would be one of my greatest influences as they know how to produce great pop / dance music, play live and create a party atmosphere. Also produce brilliant videos for their hits.
Klankarussell where the inspiration that got me writing tracks and in particular the tracks ‘sonnentanz’ and ‘Netzwerk’ again great videos.
Finally has to be Chris Brown and tracks that feature Rich Gang and assorted rappers such as Tyga and Young Thug, just great street music.
Is there anything you would like people to know about your current release?
It’s an original track with strong tribal beats and a real crossover of styles. We love it.
Where are you based and what’s your local scene like? Any favourite venues?
We are based in the north with members of the collective coming from Leeds, Manchester and the M62 corridor.
Locally the music scene is very guitar based and leans towards the indie scene, obviously I have a London sound influence which gives us a different vibe up here.
A favourite venue for me is the O2 Academy in Leeds, I have seen and had some great nights there. Also the G-Mex in Manchester is a cool venue.
Who else can you recommend from your local scene for people to have a listen to?
There are so many guitar based bands around the scene in Leeds and west Yorkshire, I wouldn’t to compare us to any of these really and wouldn’t really like to single any out. As far as other styles of music go, there are some Electronica bands but again I wouldn’t like single one out in particular as they are all pretty competent.
