My mind is always creating sounds.

ESCAPE, INSPIRATION, PASSION & SOUL

Music is part of me, my soul was born with a passion for music to escape in. Surrounded by music and musical instruments all my life it would have been hard to ignore.

Labels I have worked with include; Deep Down Dirty, Deep Down Dirty Drum & Bass, Locked Up Music, Mindbending, Heavy Bassweight & Catharsis as these work well with my style.

My passion is to bridge gap between different styles of music (dance, trance, techno, break beat, drum and bass, dub, chill out, acid, house, dubstep, drum step. In fact, my only passion is to create music that is not run of the mill, it needs passion, bass and most of all soul.

Welcome to my site, which contains a number of tracks I’ve written recently and some of the background which inspired them.

The Sonic Construction Studio

This is my creation studio… a place where wonderful things happen, and I’m never quite sure how they are going to turn out…

The Sonic Construction studio has evolved over the last 25 years from an Atari ST and a Casio CZ101 to this ensemble of instruments.

I use the Access Virus TI along with a number of plugins such as Xfer Serum and NI Razor for most of my sounds. These are embellished by beauty or beastly-ness from the Moog Sub-37, Roland Juno 106 or any number of other classics I happen to have lying around 🙂

My collection has evolved since the early 90’s and includes other old faithfuls such as the Bass station, JV / XV modules and really old stuff like the Casios.

With hardware and plugins alike, my favorite trick, which I believe makes my sound unique is to twist them out of recognition and use them for things they were never designed for!

About

Let’s start at the very beginning. A very good place to start…

My mind is always creating sounds.

ESCAPE, INSPIRATION, PASSION & SOUL.

Music is part of me, my soul was born with a passion for music to escape in. Surrounded by music and musical instruments all my life it would have been hard to ignore.

With various audio hardware items and attending musical performances with my talented musicians as parents, my own style, intrigue and passion was lit. My Mum still plays her church organ or accompanies a choir with her flute!

My passion for music really kicked in around the age of 7, anything I could make a sound and rhythm with and even started beatboxing. My greatest delight was when my own son also began creating his own beatboxing around 4years old.

Music must be in the genes! Dad would perform, conduct and record at a variety of classical concerts. His treasured hobby was creating and repairing audio hardware. Naturally I began helping him with the synthesizers and amplifiers.

He also built huge and ridiculously loud speakers built to last, even 50 years on I know of a set still in regular use. What young boy wouldn’t just love the thought of a concert sound in their lounge pounding through the body.

I too have made several sets for myself and numerous commissions since. Imagine a Suburban garden surrounded by trees with light sets with imposing speakers carefully placed ready to deafen the neighbors, such joy! With or without instruments I have always created my own style of music.

My interest was particularly in electronic music, Jean-Michel Jarre, Jean Jack Perry, and new wave music in my teens. So starting with my Dad’s synthesizer I have learnt, progressed and produced 100’s of tracks since. My first selling track was a remix of Humanoid and have since released 3 albums and several Eps, with numerous tucked away awaiting release.

My latest album is being finalized for imminent release.Labels I have worked with include; Deep Down Dirty, Deep Down Dirty Drum & Bass, Locked Up Music, Mindbending, Heavy Bassweight & Catharsis as these work well with my style.Private events have hired my services; the launch party for Deep Down and Dirty, an Electronic Music event and numerous mini festivals.

One of the first events I performed at was in Brighton, playing a new album, of which Comabt9 was the track that attracted people’s heads into my speakers for the bass effect! Life’s simple pleasures bought such joy to me witnessing that. The bass lines of my music are the biggest appeal to my followers.

My passion is to bridge gap between different styles of music (dance, trance, techno, break beat, drum and bass, dub, chill out, acid, house, dubstep, drum step. In fact, my only passion is to create music that is not run of the mill, it needs passion, bass and most of all soul.
