Although these interests then naturally led him into dubstep, after spending a while producing and DJing 140bpm material, he felt compelled to return to his roots. “The first time I did FWD I just switched from playing all dubstep-style stuff. I wanted to go down to FWD and represent what I’ve been about since I’ve been DJing. So I brought some old garage and grime, and that’s the direction I’ve taken since.”
