Q 2: So, what made you want to become an MC? Tell us about your journey into the music industry.

When I was 18, I experienced my first drum and bass event in my home town Cardiff. DJ Shy FX and MC Skibadee were there. Since that moment, I was hooked.

Skibadee, Fearless, Eksman, Trigga, Bassman, Wiley, Dizzee, Jme, Devilman, Riko, Big H and P Money.

Q 4: How would you describe your music to someone who hasn’t heard of you before?

One side of my music is very x-rated, dark, violent and a high energy type of music. The other side is more deep, intelligent, controversial, enlightening and mystical.

The album ‘Dr. Dimensional’ represents the change within me as a person. The more I change for the better, and so does my music.

Q 6: Different MC’s and producers are constantly collaborating. Who would you love to work with?
