1. Tell us a little about yourself - What's the origin of your name? and what inspired you to get into the music scene?
I always used to listen to and play music when I was younger, I was brought up listening to hip hop jungle and funk . The name came from playing at youth clubs, meaning go low.

It's a wide variety from ska, booty, jungle to dubstep.
