Hi Smash! How are you?
I’m doing great.
Where are you from?
I was born in England, my mother is from Trinidad and my dad is from Mauritius.
When did you start music?
I have always been into music, that transformed into DJ-ing in my teens, but it was just a hobby. After obtaining my BA in Animation that’s when I started to get into music production and I started taking it seriously.
How did you get into music?
After graduating with my degree in animation I was doing a freelance job in Brixton. It was in a complex that housed many offices and studio spaces. A lot of them were occupied by creatives, from filmmakers, dancers, music studio producers. I was at this job for like 8 months and got to know some of the music studio owners and one day I asked if I can have a dabble for a few hours. I instantly fell in love with it and the rest is history.
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
That they have not just heard something I have done or something I have contributed towards, but they have experienced something about who I am.
Any new music coming out soon?
Yes! Working very closely with Krishane (son of the Reggae legend Barrington Levy). We have something we have been working on few things now for a while, things will drop as and when it’s ready, so watch this space, it’s happening soon!
