I accidentally discovered RTRFM as a child and it introduced me to some of my favourite artists. It was a catalyst for my interest in music production and radio. Fast forward to my late teens, I was now living in California. This is where I experienced underground sound system culture for the first time. Bay Area promoters and DJs encouraged me to produce Drum & Bass and eventually I got around to spinning records. I moved back home in 2008 as a Dubstep enthusiast and immediately began to spread the sound around Perth. Trainwreck and Rhythm Trippin’ invited me in for a guest mix in 2009 and shortly after I joined the Bass Check crew and have been here ever since.
This is always changing for me but my 2017 “Desert Island Top 5” in no particular order:
Being the soundtrack to the city and coastline that inspires me. Everyone at the station does their part for the love of it!
The relationships I’ve developed with listeners over the years who I have yet to meet in person.
I’ve been fortunate enough to guest host most on my original list but someday I would love to fill in for Jamdown Vershun, Siamese Dream, Ambient Zone or Breakfast.
