I am a Hip Hop Producer and Mix Engineer based in Cambridge, UK.

Educated at the University of Hertfordshire with a degree in Music Technology (BSc), I have been producing Hip Hop for over 10 years and have had international beat placements and remixes. Having producing for labels and artists including Tommy Boy, Marc7 (Jurassic5), and Mr J Medeiros (The Procussions) I have also had artists such as Oddisee feature on my own projects. In addition to this, I have had placements on TV and receive regular radio play both in the U.K. and the U.S.

Working regularly with London emcee K.I.N.E.T.I.K, releasing two projects ‘Pencils Not Pistols’ and  ‘Adventures In Technicolour’ we have put our mark on UK Hip Hop gathering praise from industry peers including BBC Radio.
