I AM…
Last Japan.

YOU MIGHT ALREADY KNOW ME FOR…
Being the only collaborator on Zomby’s ‘With Love’ LP on the track ‘Pyrex Nights’.

I’D DESCRIBE THE MUSIC I PLAY AS…
Grime, with lots of colour and blends of other genres in there. Night tracks and space music.

WHEN I’M NOT WORKING, YOU’LL FIND ME…
“Getting lean up off the coke and rums.”

MY EARLIEST MEMORY OF MUSIC IS…
My parents playing Marvin Gaye and Michael Jackson 12s. Oh, and mum doing workout steps to R.Kelly ‘She’s Got That Vibe’ lol.

IF I WAS INVISIBLE FOR THE DAY, I’D…
Hit up Hans Zimmer’s Studio.

IF I NEED INSPIRATION, I…
Grab my 50mm Nikon camera and take some pictures around London.

I CAN’T START MY DAY WITHOUT…
Double espresso and a Cuban Cigar, with the Buena Vista Social Club 12 on.

YOU MAY BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT…
I once played trumpet in an orchestra.

MY LIFE WON’T BE COMPLETE UNTIL…
I’m dead.
