”These five tracks that have helped shape my career as an artist. It was a challenge trying to think of just 5 tracks that have influenced me as there is so much to talk about. I’ve narrowed it down to these as they had a significant impact on me as a new listener and producer of drum and bass way back in 2012.

‘Deep’ - TC ft Jakes (Released 2007)
‘Deep’ was one of the first jump up records I heard. Being into grime and dubstep at the time, the vibe of this track felt very familiar to me, especially as the track featured lyrics from Jakes. What really drew me in was the production (which I could tell was more complex than it sounded) and I was hooked instantly.
‘Original Ninja’ - Taxman (Released 2008)
I stumbled across a Youtube cut of Taxman’s ‘Original Ninja’ from Hype’s Kiss FM show. This track opened the door to the heavier, darker side of drum and bass and the reggae influences here resonated with me.
‘Infected Headphones’ - Tyke (Released 2012)
‘Infected Headphones’ was the gateway track which turned me from being an avid listener into a drum and bass producer. Before this I’d been experimenting in dubstep production however soon as I heard this track it changed my course. It was the first time I’d heard such a unique production style that was loud, gritty and complex. I’ve never looked back since!
‘You Skream’ - Original Sin (Released 2012)
Original Sin’s ‘You Skream’ was a go to reference track for me as a learning producer. The track rolls out with his signature drums but with eerie vocals and deep pads flowing over the top. The atmosphere in this track is powerful and I keep finding new things every time I come back to it.
‘Collide’ - Alex Centra (Released 2014)
‘Collide’ from Centra blew me away when I first heard it on the Lifted Podcast. It was the first neuro funk track that I really took to. As a young producer I hoped someday I could achieve this level of intricacy and I’d listen through this track trying to figure out how the sounds were made. It inspired me to try harder with my sound design for sure!
