TS7 has remixed household names such as Yolanda Be Cool, Lethal Bizzle, Kissy Sell Out, Tulisa, Afrojack and Meleka amongst others. TS7 has also featured on a number of compilation albums including Pure Garage Rewind, The Sound of UK Garage and The No 1 Electro Album. His sound lies between well swung garage, and vibe driven house music. We cannot wait for him to drop by on Friday at The Market Bar in Nottingham for our next instalment.
Check out his new single and have a little read when we caught up with him.
1 – For this who don’t know much about you, can you let everyone know who you are?
– Haha… I’m a 23 year old music producer and DJ from Bradford. I’d say my music was a mixture of house, garage and bassline. Also, a big Manchester United fan!
2 – where did it all begin for you musically?
– My mum made me take piano lessons from around 5. Didn’t really like it at the time, but couldn’t thank her enough now! Production started when I managed to get hold of ‘Fruityloops’ when I was about 14. Currently using Logic to produce now…
3 – What was your inspiration when you first started?
– This is a hard one as I used to listen to music from Eminem all the way over to bands like Linkin’ Park & Papa Roach and obviously the Legendary EZ pure garage compilations! My dad used to play Jazz music constantly when I was younger too. Took inspiration from everything really…
4 – Whats your favourite tune to play at the moment?
– Another tough one. Probably Heartlight with Taylor Fowlis.
5 – what news would you like to share with us?
– We have just started the campaign for the new single ‘Reach’. Have a listen online if you haven’t heard it yet…
Also, I have my own radio show on Kiss Fresh every Saturday from 10pm. Tune in!
6 – What other djs and producers have caught your eye so far?
– This is an easy one, DJ EZ! Production wise I really like what Disclosure are doing at the moment.
7 – Who would you want to collaborate with and why?
– Right now I’d like to work with MNEK. A Producer, Songwriter and a Vocalist from London. Super talented!
8 – Talk us through a day in the life of TS7
– A day in my life pretty much has the same target each day. Wake up, shower then breakfast, hit the studio to try make a song that was better than the last! Doesn’t always go to plan though haha
9 – Whats the rest of the year have in store?
– Hopefully continue to progress and move forward. I think things happen when they’re meant to so don’t have any specific time restrictions. I’ve got a team of people around me that believe in what I’m doing so fingers crossed all goes to plan…
10 – Favourite place to DJ apart from Waxed Music?
– I recently played at XOYO supporting Toddla T which was a wicked night!
