I CAUGHT UP WITH STORMIN JUST BEFORE HIS NEW SINGLE ‘BERLIN’ DROPPED WE TALKED DNB, RAVES, FASHION AND I LEARNT ITS ESSENTIAL TO HAVE YOUR SUNGLASSES ON INSIDEEEEEEEEEEE
From Sidewinder with nasty crew to dnb boat parties in amsterdam, how did the transition happen?
I’ve always been a multi genre artist since the nasty crew days. So at the end of our sets mak 10 would play jungle Dnb for the last ten mins and me and d double would ride mic. So years on I felt it was only right I followed my Dnb passion.
Is jungle a big influence on your MC style?
Yes massive it comes from my dad being a sound man. And I find it a way to merge my reggae style with drum and bass because I’m most known for my catchy hooks with reggae Dnb twists to it.
Was it hard moving from one scene to the other ?
I haven’t left or moved. Music is music. One love
Do the crowds react better in DnB , they seem alot more outgoing and ready to dance?
No but Dnb have raves every week so people are hype every week with grime it’s like one every 3 to 4 months.
You’ve recently worked with Spyder, is it a big deal working with these legends of the UK scene?
Do you think the DnB scene is just getting bigger and bigger ? there seems to be so many DnB raves all week every week ?
Yep because the more the fans want the more they get. It’s all about the ravers and supporters they help the scene grow.
Do you work closely with any particular DJ? Is there a dream DJ whose set you haven’t shelled down yet ?
No I like to work with everyone so never hold myself to one Dj and the only people I ain’t worked with would be Chase and Status or Sub Focus.
Do you prefer performing at these big arenas or do you prefer smaller intimate gigs?
The bigger the better!
Who would be on your dream gig line up?
I’d love to have a multi genre rave
When you were in Nasty crew, which was your favourite dance?
Sidewinder and Eskimo dance and La Cosa Nostra
Out of all your videos you’ve done which is your favourite?

Who is your biggest musical influence?

I am dying to know how your long running support of BlueCheese came about?
Me and mr cheese have been friends for many years an he knows in a lover of the Herb cheese and love cloths and I see he started a label so I said I’d help promote.
Who is keeping you on your toes musically? Which younger artists are getting you hyped?
I can’t give a name but the whole scene at the moment has got me on my toes.
Do you think any of your kids will follow in your footsteps?
I can’t tell just yet there still young but both lovers of music
