Hey Loz, thanks for joining us. When did you first become interested in house music?

Hey guys, massive thanks for the invite! I was at Uni about ten years ago when I started getting into House. I was studying music production and making Drum & Bass, Garage and Dubstep then. I met some guys making Minimal Techno and Tech House and was instantly hooked to the groove and percussion, especially the Spanish & Latin percussive tech sound!

Your latest release, “Run It Up,” is an impressive single on Data Transmission; what can you tell us about it and its support so far?

Thanks so much for the love on the track. It’s a mainstage tech banger with a big bassline, some wicked vocal chops, chunky drums & tonnes of attitude! It’s way less percussive than my usual style, so seeing it so well received has been great!

I’m so happy with how the track’s done. It’s my third release to date and my first not on Toolroom, so I didn’t know what to expect, but Grahame & Hobbs (DT Label manager) have pushed it hard; massive shout to them!

It hit number 17 in the Tech House Chart on Beatport and had features across both Beatport and Traxsource sites, so a big thanks to everyone who grabbed a copy!

Support wise it’s been played by Mark Knight, MK, ESSEL & R3WIRE and the track was in Idris Elbas USBS, so hoping to catch a video of him playing it soon and downloaded by loads of artists, so I’m just proper buzzing that the music is getting out there!

Data Transmission has been a centric part of your journey. How has your relationship with the brand impacted your career?

Data Transmission feels more like my family now, more than anything else! I started working for them a couple of years ago, helping Grahame out with his Twitch streaming and video editing, and that developed into A&Ring the label, live-streaming weekly on Twitch, giving feedback to producers’ demos and social media, and so much more!

I’ve learnt so much from him and Shelley, and I’m incredibly grateful for all the opportunities they shoot my way, so it was a nice touch to get a track over the line for DT finally, and for it to do so well has been amazing!

What is your favourite aspect of producing music?

Getting lost in an idea, and then coming out your head a few hours later and realising you’ve got something that hits hard! Especially when you return to the idea a day or two later, it still has that feeling!

Equally, it’s painful when it goes the other way, though!

How do you measure success in your career?

For me, the main thing is validation from my peers and, of course, the ravers! I want my music to impact people, even if it’s a simple bass face from the crowd.

But also for recognition from the artists and peers that I love, like Chelina Manuhutu, who just played one of my tracks at Ants in Miami which for me is mindblowing, she’sshe’s an idol of mine, so to see that support is incredible; and the main way I gauge success for myself I think! Thanks, Chelina, if you’re reading this, haha!

What is your favourite genre to incorporate into your productions?

I couldn’t narrow it down to one; my music taste is eclectic as F**k. I

bring many different genres into my productions, from Drum & Bass to Dub, Reggae, Soul and even Blues elements. If it works, it works!

Can you tell us about a time you overcame a creative block?

The main advice for getting rid of creative block is to experiment, try a new synth or plugin, grab sound audio, chop it up, stretch it and put some weird effects on it! You can always do something that can spur creativity in the studio!

Failing that, emulate someone else’s work who you admire, really analyse how they make their music, and you will learn some new tricks!

You don’t have to put the track out if it sounds exactly like the reference track, which it probably won’t. You’ll have learned a tonne, got some new elements to play with, and the main thing is you won’t have been unproductive with your valuable time in the studio – Win-Win!

What is your opinion on the current state of the house music scene?

I think it’s just as exciting and dynamic as ever; creativity and innovation are happening everywhere you look.

I love seeing how different artists and labels are pushing the boundaries of the genre, from the UK Hard House/Rave revival to the Latin Tech (which I’m fully into); the jazzy minimal scene is fully popping off, all the way to the thumpy 130 disco tunes, there’s something for everyone!

Who would be your dream collaborator?

There are a few, but if I had to pick the top one, it would be Iglesias. His production is unparalleled; it would be less of a collab and more of me fanboying his production techniques! Please show me how you make your drums Iglesias!!!!

Close seconds would be Andruss & Angel Heredia. I’m so into their music right now!

What can fans expect from you in the future?

I’ve got a few more releases this year, another coming on Toolroom, and some other great labels and collaborations that I can’t name yet. Gig-wise, I have my first headline gig in Bristol on the 4th, which I’m super excited about, and lots of other cool stuff popping up! Also, loads more collabs in the works with some incredible producers and looking to get live streaming & starting a radio show later this year, too, so watch this space!
