Growing up on the south coast, I was immersed in a diverse mix of attitudes, culture and music. From an early age I was recording and mixing anything from hip-hop to straight-up rock often merging styles and influences to create a very personal and eclectic approach to making music. I signed to BMG at the tender age of 17 producing dance records for the U.S, a move to Brighton found me recording and releasing more records throughout the UK and Europe.
This led to my first solo album release under the name Indian Ropeman for Skint records. Extensive touring (including a 3 week Fun Loving Criminals support) gave me the opportunity to hone my skills as a live player as well as a studio based producerand arranger. During this time Skint Records saw the possibilities of my talents and made me their in house engineer/producer to work with such acts as The Lo-Fi Allstars, Midfield General and The Space Raiders, whilst remixing for China, Beggars banquet, Sony, and EMI.
A natural progression into production and composition has followed, and my recent work for Delicious Digital includes the BBC Commonwealth games theme and package, Dr Who Cinema trailer, several BBC idents, and music for Sky1 & Virgin Media . Other work has included production for Chungking (Gut Records), scoring for a mini-series "shadowline" and a longstanding partnership with Brighton Songwriting team Chicks With Hits, which has resulted in placements with leading brands including Mars, Hugo Boss, Evian, Nivea, Fox TV, CBS and MTV.
I'm partial to a ham hock and have a mean cobra slice on the pong table.
Oh and I'm extremely excited to be behind the music for MoshiMonsters and having my track for Lady Goo Goo stopped by the diva Gaa Gaa herself.
