How did you become involved?

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.

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

This is always changing for me but my 2017 “Desert Island Top 5” in no particular order:

  • The Books – Lost and Safe
  • Bibio – Mind Bokeh
  • Boards Of Canada – Music Has The Right To Children
  • Wisp – The Shimmering Hour
  • Brenton Wood – Oogum Boogum

What is the best thing about being involved with the station?

Being the soundtrack to the city and coastline that inspires me. Everyone at the station does their part for the love of it!

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?

The relationships I’ve developed with listeners over the years who I have yet to meet in person.

If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?

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.

What do you do in real life?
