I began my career/adventure as a Dj in 2015, graduating from the SAE Institute around the same time, which has since led myself (Dynamics) to having supported some of the biggest names in Drum & Bass music, releasing some music, overseas DJ sets and being supported by a number of promoters (list’s below). Known in the local scene for my careful selections, ranging from deep soulful liquid Drum & Bass, to the darker and more ‘techy’ vibes, and certainly the harder hitting dance floor side of the genre as well. Gaining a residency for Extended Play in the past, during the Friday weekly Knowledge nights, and with a passion for curating music selections presenting radio shows for RTR FM 92.1 was a match made.
Music production came shortly after, and with the debut track Never Give Up gaining support on the socials from the Good Karma Music label and RTR FM’s Dart and Sardi (former co host) of Wednesdays Full Frequency, Which Mr. Dart has since still supported my music with open arms. (Big up Dart!)
I have had releases on record labels such as, Delta 9 Recordings, Protocode Music and New Forms. Alongside support from popular YouTube channels such as District Bass, as well as the Basilisk Bass channel, and have also collaborated with a number of local producers and. vocalist’s, with a couple featuring within these releases.

How did you become involved in the station?
I became involved after playing a couple of DJ sets for Will Bixler on ‘Bass Check’ Tuesdays, which then led me to co hosting with both Will and Brett Kel, aka, Vishnu on Rhythm Trippin and Bass Check. I then connected with Chris ‘Dart’ Kelly through my music I was sending over for his Full Frequency shows, not long after Dart was asking me to fill in for a few FF slots.
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
I would say I have a couple favourite things I have been involved with, I loved going b2b with RTRFM presenter Courtney Fraser, aka, Weaponess at the 40 years of RTRFM Radiothon 2017 event, held at Tetsuo nightclub. And of course when the Bass Check and Rhythm Trippin collectives get together during radiothon for the epic b2b2b2b2b shows.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Classic one, forgetting the phone number whilst live on air, and instead of bailing out, I just kept on going with giving out a completely made up phone number. Yep.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Ooo well I would love to be presenting Wednesday’s Full Frequency, since of course the Wednesday FF show is all about Drum & Bass, and Broken Beat music, those being my favourite of all genres. I wouldn’t mind taking a journey on the Ambient Zone show once in a while as well.
What do you do in real life?
I’m an Artist (abstract and modern styles), DJ, Music Producer, Audio Engineer, Music Production Tutor, Carer.
